Quick Smoke: Protocol Official Misconduct Corona Gorda

29 Jun 2020

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

The Cubariqueño Cigar Company’s fourth blend, Official Misconduct, was originally launched in only a Toro (6 x 50) format. The Corona Gorda (5.6 x 46, $9.95) was added later. Made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, the blend features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper around a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. The profile is dry and oaky with a powdery mouthfeel and a concentration of cinnamon on the tip of the tongue. Background notes include almond and a bit of caramel sweetness. The physical properties—burn line, smoke production, ash firmness, and draw—are all outstanding.

Verdict = Buy.
