Coronado by La Flor

Submitted by Rob on August 18, 2009 – 2:00 am3 Comments

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun Grown
Filler: Dominican
Size: Toro (6 x 52)
Strength: Full

Construction: Any product made by La Flor Dominicana is going to have great construction. And by saying that I do mean that this Coronado line is no exception, the construction is absolutely amazing. This wrapper, like many other Sun Grown cigars, has a slight red tint with a medium brown base color. The Coronado has very fine veins and a slightly oily wrapper. It is firm, filled with tobacco, and will never give you any problems unraveling during the smoking process.

Draw: Perfection. Coronado by La Flor has the kind of draw that pours great smoke on your palate but requires the correct amount of resistance.

Burn: This particular Coronado had been aged for approximately two years. The aged cigar had a slower burn that was still perfect and did not require any types or corrections. If you were to pick up this stogie fresh from your local B&M you can expect the Coronado to burn a bit quicker, and again, still perfect. Your ash created will be very solid and will only come off with a nice firm tap.

Taste: Coronado by La Flor is a very complex cigar that will please anyone with a medium-full body palate.

Initially you will get a great sense of the tobacco being used as it is introduced with a real peppery finish and a nice creamy smoke coating your palate. After your first puffs you will notice that your cigar is not overwhelmed by pepper but it acts as a partner to the complex flavors trickling in. Earthiness, leather and spice are the primary flavors.

At the middle of the cigar it is still hard to describe the complexity of the Coronado as it bombs your palate with rich flavors. The smoke is thick and creamy and the primary notes you will pick up are caramel and leather with perhaps a slight sun grown spice. It is possible you will pick up a bit of earthiness lingering in the background.

The best part of the Coronado by La Flor is that you never loose the taste of the tobacco being used. Instead it amplifies the leather, caramel, spice and creamy smoke that you are experiencing. It is consistent from start to finish and I promise it will leave you wanting to smoke another to see if you can pull out individualized components.

Final Verdict: Price range is $8.xx at the local B&M wile online it hovers around the $6.xx-7.xx sticker. I didn’t do the Coronado by La Flor any justice in trying to describe the smoking experience it delivers. Just take my word (and everyone else on this planet) that this cigar is truly amazing. The full body smokers will enjoy the cigar if smoked relatively fresh. The medium-full body smokers will absoulty fall in love with the Coronado with as little as 1-2 years worth of age. So my suggestion would be to buy a box now for smoking and a box for aging!

    Great review! Got my mouth watering… Heck, I even like the BAND on that thing!

  • Nice review guys. I like this cigar alot. My father and I smoked this cigar in the double corona and it took us 2 1/2 hours to finish. Definitly a time commitment but well worth it.

    I bought a box of the Double Corona and its a GREAT cigar. It takes me about 2 1/4 hours or more to smoke a cigar of this size, I like to have enough time to relax and enjoy a fine cigar. One of the other things that I enjoy about La Flor Dominicana Cigars is consistency. I’ve smoked several different “name” cigars and found their consistency lacking. I’ve bought other vintages of La Flor Dominicana and have found this to be true with each vintage I bought. They are a bargain considering the quality construction, even burn, and rich flavor.
