Corona /kəˈrōnə/ noun - the rarefied gaseous envelope of the sun and other stars.
The Oliva Cigar Company grows some of the best Nicaraguan tobaccos in the world. The Oliva Serie O is no exception and named one of the top 25 best cigars in 2013.
The Oliva family only uses the Sun-grown Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano long fillers and binders to create the Serie O Nicaraguan Habano Puro Corona. Oliva has blended together Habano leaf from the Jalapa Valley, Estelí, and Condega regions of Nicaragua.
The corona is the standard size which all other sizes of cigars are measured. The dimensions of the Nicaraguan Habana Puro Corona are 5 inches with a ring gauge of 43. The burn, draw, ash, and smoke from this Puro are excellent. With a naturally oily wrapper, the Serie O should be aged in one’s humidor to preserve the smooth texture.
The taste of this premium cigar is full-bodied , full-flavored and extraordinarily smooth from first to the last draw. The dark Habano tobacco reminds one of rich cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
With these woodsy and spicy notes, the Nicaraguan Habana Puro pairs well with American whiskeys such as Jim Beam Craft 12 year. Try this combination asap!
