Light of Ybor, Natural Corojo

First, sorry it has been so long since I last blogged.  My site was down for a short while, and I took my time getting it back and going.  My ISP didn’t seem too interested in helping me get it back and going, and couldn’t provide me of an explanation as to why all the content was removed, so I had a few words with them on that for a while.  Finally, I was able to get at least a little bit of help, and here we are, up and running again.

I have spent the week with my brother in Tampa, FL this week, and we went out for cigars the other night.  Ybor City is an area of downtown Tampa, and there are some hand-rolled cigars made right here in town, so I decided to try a couple of them.  The first one I smoked was this Corojo in a Natural wrapper.  It started extremely spicy and bitter.  The bitterness went away pretty fast, but the spiciness stayed for the first 1/3-1/2 of the cigar.  After that, it developed into a creamy taste until the last 1/4 of the cigar, where the spiciness came back.  There was PLENTY of smoke, and the draw was about perfect.   The ash burned evenly and was pretty light colored, so overall this was a good smoke.
