Mia Dora Corona from Emilio Cigars

Mia Dora Corona Cigar
Smoking the Mia Dora Corona you'll find a complex flavor mix ranging from spicy and sweet to earthy. Couple complex flavors with top notch construction and you have one nice smoke. 

My first opportunity to smoke the Mia Dora was last year as a pre-release toro and it was an impressive cigar.

The Mia Dora Corona from Emilio Cigars starts with a seamless Colorado Claro colored Habano Rosado wrapper covering a Nicaraguan binder and fillers. Visually inspecting the cigar there only small veins visible in the wrapper, the wrapper has a nice oily gloss and it's finished with a triple cap.

Checking the cold cigar for aromas and flavors there are notes of spicy sweet tea from the foot and the free draw tastes like spicy tea mixed with fruit. After toasting the foot the first flavors were a mix of medium/full bodied spice mixed with fruit. The spice quickly mellowed, as did the body, when flavors of black tea and fermented tobacco moved in. Soon to follow were notes of brown sugar, toast, cedar, a hint of black pepper, and sweet nutty pecans. With a flavor mix of peaty earth, toast and caramel the Mia Dora finished it's fifty minute burn in the medium body range. 

Rated 94

I'd like to thank House of Emilio for providing this sample.
