ZigHick (4.9€) Medium strength. Taken into account that this is a maduro I would even say it is mildly strong. While this is not the most complex cigar i've smoked, it is definitely one of the better ones. I cannot exactly put my finger on one of the tastes that goes along all the way with this cigar but it is a good one. While it burns down evenly the draw is not really good imo I have to work a little bit too hard to get smoke out of it. I might, no.. I WILL try this one again in the future if possible...
English John This maduro from Honduras lasted a lot longer than The Lite corona which I noted at about 65 minutes and this one was heading for two hours, perhaps I am a slow smoker after all but it did need several relights. That could be due to the humidity in my garage which was about 75% today. This corona comes in at 5.5" with a ring gauge of 52. The maduro wrapper is from Costa Rica and the filler from Nicaragua. The wrapper is the usual dark chocolate brown you would expect from a maduro but it has a satiny finish with definite though not raised veins. The scent is a rich mocha. This was a well packed and firm stick with no soft spots and appeared to be very well made. Being from The Edge range it just has a discrete band around the foot that just slips off. It cut nicely with no raggedy edges and the cold draw was easy and tasted mild and leathery with just a hint of the mocha. It lit up nicely and burned slowly with a sharp edge and a light grey ash that dropped off after a centimetre, about 12 minutes in. The exhaled smoke had a fruity aroma to it and the inhaled flavour was smooth, mild and leathery with a slight sweetness that built up and lingered in my mouth. After about half an hour I was delighted to get a definite hint of chocolate but sadly it didn't last. The flavour got a bit peppery towards the end and I was happy to leave it at an hour and 45 but could have stretched it out to two hours. This one won't be on my buy list but I certainly wouldn't turn one down.
