COHIBA SERIE M | CIGAR REVIEW
MAY 22, 2022 - PHIL KURUT, COMEDY - CIGARS - MUSIC
COHIBA SERIE M CORONA GORDA (6 1/2 x 48)
WRAPPER: NICARAGUAN COROJO
FILLER: NICARAGUA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
An even balance of earth, cream, leather, and spice provide a nice first impression. The Serie M draws well and produces ample smoke.
Wood and butter intertwine, gliding smoothly through the retrohale.
The finish attempts to dive into leather, catching just a bit of it. Sweetness and spice step up and speak louder. Not yelling though.
As the Serie M strolls along, earth, leather, and fruit lead the way. The fruit reminds me of Skittles. The smoke has a nice creaminess to it but doesn’t necessarily influence the flavor. More of a feel.
Spice continues to linger on the finish alongside some sweetness. Leather wiggles in a bit more now.
Serie M’s burn line provides a consistently straight path for the solid ash to cling on to. Everything works together nicely as a team so far, from draw to ash.
Earth holds strong, coffee replaces leather, and cream takes on a bigger role than just feel, adding sweetness. A fleeting caramel can even be detected at the front of the draw. Enjoyable combination there.
Unrelated. I saw the trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Spoiler alert. It looks terrible, both in title and content.
Earth and some distant Skittles dance lightly through the nostrils. The finish provides a nice light summer sheet of coffee and spice. Every so often when I move my tongue around, the spice bounces a little more, and butter splashes a bit.
I just can’t get over how terrible this new She-Hulk series looks. I want to say it looks dumb. Yeah, dumb is a good word.
The ash gets a tad funky, but still remains more stable than whatever She-Hulk’s plot happens to be.
Ash slowly begins to crumble. I can only attribute it to a broken spirit regarding She-Hulk.
Earth, wood, and coffee now work to keep me entertained, and they do their job well enough.
My nose finds earth and a pleasant touch of sourness.
Coffee darkens on the finish, and some dark chocolate can be found deep in the corners.
Pushing everything forward and adding lightness, creaminess still swirls around in the smoke, dropping its sweetness.
SMOKE TIME: 1 hr. 48 mins.
RATING: 3 / 4 - A prayer for She-Hulk.
