Default Flor de Cielo Maduro Salomon

I bought this Flor de Cielo Maduro Salomon at Corona Cigar Company in Orlando, there is no other option since its one of their house blends. And the thing isnít cheap with a 10 dollar price tag but itís huge. But I donít think it was a big success since the cigars arenít to be found on their website anymore so I guess they stopped production of this brand.

As I said, the cigar is huge, 7◊58 in a huge perfecto size. From what I found online the cigar is rolled in Miamiís little Havana, but the tobacco is cured and fermented in Nicaragua. That makes me wonder what factory in Miami rolled these cigars.

The ultra dark wrapper is very oily and that caused the cellophane to become yellow. The wrapper looks awesome, only on thin vein, beautiful color and add that to the size, that makes this cigar look impressive and probably the reason why I bought this a few years ago. The ring is yellowish with a copper colored text Flor de Cielo in a typography that reminds me of Flor de Cana, the same way as Flor de Oliva does. The cigar feels evenly packed and knowing that this is a difficult vitola to roll Iím taking my head off to the torcedor. The cigar has a mild aroma of wood, hay and barnyard.

Due to the shape I had to cut the cigar. The cold draw is fine and I taste some hay, raisin and chocolate. Right after lighting I taste coffee. Soon I taste cedar, a little lime and a mild peppery spice. After an inch the cigar gets a little stronger in the citrus. Halfway I taste dry cedar with still a lemon. There is an overall Maduro sweetness and Iím digging it. The final third gives a little black pepper with the cedar and the lemon. Near the end I taste spicy, peppery carrots.

The draw is great. The smoke is thick and white. The salt and pepper ash is quite firm and the draw is straight. The evolution is good and the cigar is medium full bodied, full flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? if Corona still has these I will on my first trip stateside.

Score: 91
