Review #14: A lot of great reviews had made me very curious about( this one. So I ordered one in Hong Kong $8,60 vs €10,50 in The Netherlands) to try it myself. The Corona Gorda size is a very nice cigar to the eye, very present yet not overwhelming: thick but not too thick, long but not too long. It has a nice, silky wrapper with minor veins. The only ‘downsides’ are the IMHO very ugly band and (in my case) being very box pressed. The pre-light draw gives away a lot of what can be expected: tight on the draw (but not too tight) and hints of honey and earth. Because it had a tight draw, I thought it would light up a little difficult, but the opposite was true. After a few puffs it begins to deliver it’s flavor. Liquorice and honey predominate the palate, earthy tones come and go. In the second half some mint came through, never experienced that before. It’s quite smooth, more medium than full bodied and definitely full flavored. I never had to relight and only two minor corrections were necessary in the hour and a half it took me to finish this one. Very recommended! - Submitted by Bolivar on June 6, 2005

Review #13: Just received a cabinet of 50 KIU JUN 03 box code and date. What a classic, the ribbon that tied around the bundle was discolored around the bundle, (oils from the cigars). I could not wait to light one, the prelight flavors and aromas are truly cuban, the ever present warm cuban cedar is the dominant. Once lit a true classic was unleashed, the decadent and intoxicating flavors and aromas that are truly SLR and only SLR. The dominant flavor of very well aged and strong tobacco is the mainstay. Add to that the flavors of warmed humid cuban cedar, add the classics such as chocolate, espresso, and the ever intoxicating honey and licorice that all Saint Luis Reys are famous for. The aromas linger for a while, when you leave the room and return the intoxicating and decadent SLR aromas hit you very openly. The construction is top notch and the wrappers, a shiney oily dark colorado. I just ordered 4 more cabinets from my supplier in Spain. - Submitted by BIGYESTA on April 14, 2005

Review #12: I prefer these to the Regios. They tend to have more flavor for me,and are a really nice corona gorda. Bold flavors of macadamias and guava begin the experience. As it burns it develops nicely. Lingering flavors of pecan and arugula develop,with a saffron like aftertaste. A very nice cigar. - Submitted by JohnnieG on January 18, 2005

Review #11: Purchased a sampler 5 pack from a Swiss web retailer from an April 2002 batch, as recommended. The wrapper is silky to the touch, great to hold and it is a delicious smoke, with evolving complexity for a medium bodied cigar. A definite 9. Sometime later, I purchased a box from a web retailer in Hong Kong who recommended from their older vintages of 2001 a Nov. 01 box rather than February 2001. Although I requested the November stock be sent the February box was shipped (I was told my request did not register on their end at the time of purchase). They are box pressed and not as good a blend, which was somewhat dissapointing. I would give those a score of seven. Go for the selection from 2002 forward, they are terrific! - Submitted by enriquez on January 18, 2005

Review #10: I have the same opinion of the review #9. I tried some Série A from a 2000 box. There was tighly rolled. "It's may be too smooth for some" You're right. - Submitted by Simon on January 17, 2005
