Quick Smoke: Table 36 Integrity Corona Gorda

1 Sep 2013

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.”

Table 36 Integrity

Made for the St. Louis-based Table 36 by Nestor Plasencia, Integrity is a Nicaraguan puro with a Jalapa wrapper, double binders from Estelí and Jalapa, and filler tobaccos from Condega and Jalapa. The Corona Gorda (5.5 x 46) has a slight box press that, at least on the single sample I received at the IPCPR Trade Show, is very pronounced at the foot while hardly noticeable at the head. The result is a powerful, full-bodied smoke with earth and graphite, along with hints of clove and molasses. This was the first Table 36 I’ve smoked, and I’m looking forward to trying others.

Verdict = Buy.

    Graphite? Interesting. I've always tried to pay attention to my smokes and their corresponding flavors and sometimes can find the right descriptor for a certain taste or aroma so I'm glad you've been able to pinpoint a certain attribute so precisely. To me thats a main draw for smoking lots of different and new cigars. Carry on and keep up the good work!
