That is two separate sources of very powerful flavor in one sitting. Clashing bitter flavors would be my guess. A young Corojo is very 'raspy' to me. Kind of like smoking something, and getting a bit of a sandpaper sensation. This mellows with age.

I like to keep blank cigar bands, and date some cigars that I'm interested in aging. I write the purchase date on them, and rotate them to the bottom of my humidor.

You may try it with a semi sweet drink next time. I like to drink coffee or tea with my cigars, they bring out a whole different bunch of flavors. Maybe a creamy coffee, with a hint of raw sugar might go good with it.

Or you could go all out, and spring for a pure cane DrPepper or Coke. I love it with strong cigars.

Rhinestones on the box. So darn gaudy I couldn't even bring myself to try a stick.
You're kidding me?! I have got to get to the shop and check that out. I wonder if they'll be as bad as the CAO Vision a little while back? They came in the coolest box ever, but it was an atrocious smoke. I'm gonna have to go buy one just to see.

No, but I'll put it on my list of things to try. Where did you buy it? Online or a local shop?
