I found that the flavors in this cigar were a lot more up front than the other and I was able to pick lots of coffee beans and caramel along with lots of wood and leather notes. It was definitely fuller in body and burned incredibly well. When I got towards the nub it was still burning cool so that was a definite perk over the other.
I would have to give this cigar a 92 and think that it is the leader of the pack in the Core Line so far. I love the cigars E. P. Carrillo is making and this is definitely a sign of good work. I am wondering looking at the ring gauge size that I am not a huge fan of the leaf he used for the wrapper so next time I am going to grab the Regalias Real which measures 5 5/8" with a 46 ring gauge, a true corona gorda. If you haven't tried this line yet you need to.
