Gran Habano S.T.K. Black Dahlia Corona Gorda

 Gran Habano, Gran Habano S.T.K. Black Dahlia, Nicaraguan Shade Grown Corojo I’ve been waiting to spark this gift from the folks at Gran Habano Cigars since I received it way back in October of 2019… Today was the day!

From my first-time puffs through a very open draw, I discovered a mild to medium (more on the mild side) experience at the start of this Gran Habano S.T.K. Black Dahlia Corona Gorda delivering malty, cedar-like tobacco flavors with a decent white pepper hit on the retrohale.

A slight honey sweetness arrives at the second third along with a high note of cedar on the finish. The retrohale remained the same as the body notches up a slight bit from mild to medium.

I’m at the last third and this specimen that has been marinating for a couple of years now is starting to taste and smoke like a fuller flavored cigar now (medium body). The very open draw at the start was throwing me off. I like the mouthfeel much better now that this has warmed up.

Gran Habano was touting this as a strong and spicy flavor bomb… OK… Where?
