Itís not hard to figure out where I got this cigar, that must be Cigarworld in Dusseldorf Germany since this cigar is made in Esteli in cooperation with Cigarworld, the biggest lounge in all of Europe as far as I know. Itís a Nicaraguan puro with ligero from Jalapa, Condega and Esteli in the filler and a Colorado Criollo wrapper.

The cigar is a little short for a corona, it measures 5◊44 but Iím surprised by the price which is Ä3,60 at the time that I am writing the review. And thatís cheap, very cheap, for a longfiller cigar. It also makes me worry, can it be any good for that price? Time to find out.

The wrapper is dark and oily but has a waterspot. The construction feels good and the overall looks of the cigar are good too. The ring is simple, its black with a brushed gold ring and shiny golden outlines, black letters saying Casa de Alegria and golden letters saying Criollo on a decent quality print. The aroma is strong, manure, urine, typical barnyard as you could say.

I cut the cigar, the cold draw is great. I taste some sweetness with quite some pepper on my lips. After lighting I taste a nice coffee with vinegar, quite sour but not unpleasant. I taste some pepper and nutmeg too after half an inch. After a third itís a mix between a little harsh spicy and herbal flavor balanced with some powdered sugar and lemon. The final third is slightly harsh with wood, lemon and spices.

The draw is great, just like the thick smoke. The light colored ash has a bit of brownish taint. The ash is firm. The burn is beautiful. The cigar is medium bodied and flavored. The smoke time is an hour and twenty minutes.

Would I buy this cigar again? Nah

Score: 87
