Cuba Aliados Corojo Piramide

Cuba Aliados Corojo Piramide

This Cuba Aliados Corojo cigar is one of the reasons I first started this site. It is a quality cigar that can be picked up at a good price from several retailers around the web. No it doesn't have a fancy band and it doesn't have knock-your-socks-off-sit-you-back-in-your-chair flavor that makes you says WOW to yourself but it's a quality cigar, with good flavor, a nice looking ash and a great burn. I don't have an unlimited cigar budget, so I look for deals all the time and this cigar fits the bill quite well.

Cuba Aliados corojo cigar
The Cuba Aliados Corojo Piramide has a good construction with a toothy corojo wrapper. As the cigar burned with a razor sharp burn line it left behind a firm white ash that held on until the mid point. The most prominent flavors were, mild black pepper, earth, oak, molasses, damp peat and touch mild red pepper.

Like I said this cigar was nothing special, it was just a good tasting, solid smoke. I could smoke a couple of these Cuba Aliados cigars every day and not break the bank. I read all the time in posts, "Life is to short to smoke cheap cigars". My philosophy deviates from that a bit.  I always say "life is to short to smoke bad cigars"! If you read of my reviews you will find that price doesn't not always equal taste.

I would like to thank  my friend Johnny of Milton Made Coffee for bombing me with these and a few other sticks around the holidays.
