Thompson Green Label Natural Corona


Wrapper: Natural
Filler: Combo
Size:  Corona
Length: 5.5
Ring Gauge: 42 
Price: $.75
Beverage: Diet Coke 
Smoking time:35 minutes
Humidor time: 15 days +
Purchased: Thompson Cigar

Construction/Pre-light: Well to start with sixty of these came free with my humidor, when they arrived they were so damp the wrapper would not burn at all, it just turned black and shrunk around the ash. Since then I have smoked about ten of these. They are a bit rough looking with heavily veined wrappers about the thickness of linoleum.

First third/Middle/End: These things now light right up, burn pretty even, have a consistent flavor from beginning to end of earth, tobacco and pepper and you can relight them without hurting the flavor at all.

Overall: I will probably never buy these since corona's are not my thing, but I will smoke what I have, they make a nice short hop-around-town smoke and the flavor isn't half bad; they are not tongue burners that's for sure. So if you are looking for a stick that is much better than most machine made cigars and want to keep the cost down, this would be a good option.
