Quick Smoke: Savinelli Nicaragua Reserve Corona Gorda

16 May 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Savinelli is better know for its pipe offerings than its cigars, but this Corona Gorda (6.6 x 46) shows that cigars aren’t being neglected. The Nicaraguan puro features a perfectly smooth, dry, medium brown wrapper. Impressive construction is highlighted by a flawless draw and even burn. The flavors are mostly earthy with some raisin and sawdust, leaving a dry finish. While certainly not a bad cigar, it loses points for leaving my mouth feeling awkwardly dry.

Verdict = Hold.
