Hot Cake Corona Gorda by HVC Cigars

COVID-19 Day 367:
 Corojo 2006 Maduro, Corona Gorda, HVC Cigars, HVC Hot Cake, Mexican San Andres, Nicaragua Last February (2020) when I smoked this Hot Cake cigar, I was impressed with the “Laguito No. 4” (Petite Corona)… although the draw was a little snug for the first third, it was an eye-opening experience the rest of the way…

Today was my second visit with this Corona Gorda Vitola and I think the Hot Cake Vitola that I will be purchasing more of is the Hot Cake Laguito #4 (Petite Corona). Today’s Corona Gorda started out with a snug draw that didn’t open up so it was difficult for me to ascertain any beneficial tobacco flavors from this Vitola where I know that the Laguito No. 4 will deliver.

So, there you have it!
