Cohiba Black Corona

I suppose it's been a while since I've had a Cohiba.  I chose to pair this one with Boulevard's "The Sixth Glass."  I decided to use my Xikar punch this time, and lit it up with my normal ritual.  I'll keep this review short and to-the-point.

1/3: This Cohiba maduro started off with a stronger mouth-feel, but gradually mellowed out in the 1st third.  I detected notes of wood and raisins.  The ash dropped off at 3/4".

2/3:  I now pick up black coffee, leather, and a hint of raisin is still present at this point.  The burn isn't perfect, but it's not at all bad. 

3/3:  A slight bitterness and char taste develop in the final third.  Disappointing, but such is the case with many sticks. 

Overall, it's a decent smoke.  Nothing special, but not bad.  I don't typically reach for the 42-ring gauges, but even I like to mix it up a little from time to time. 

Size: 5-1/2 x 42
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler:  Dominican Republic, Mexico
