Quick Smoke: MBombay Corojo Oscuro Gordo

22 Oct 2017

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.”

This MBombay creation was launched about three years ago and sports a beautiful, dark, oily Ecuadorian wrapper. The Gordo (6 x 60) is one of five vitolas in the Corojo Oscuro line. It retails for about $10. In addition to admirable construction properties, it has a dense, rich profile that’s medium- to full-bodied with hints of dark chocolate, espresso, cereals, dry wood, cayenne spice, and salted sunflower seeds. The finish is smooth and the texture is bready. I’m not a fan of this size in almost any blend, but the Gordo is balanced and interesting enough to keep my attention for the duration of the long, satisfying smoke.

Verdict = Buy.

    I have heard great things about MBombay and finally got a chance to smoke one. And, I was not very impressed. I bought them at my son’s B&M and I know they just came in. Only been in my humidor for a couple weeks. I’ll give them more time and see if it is only an issue of conditioning.
    Hope the market demand hasn’t caught up to MBombay rushing stuff out to meet demand. We shall see.
    Thanks for the short take.
