A medium to full bodied cigar with lots of spice, very rich and full flavored yet smooth and balanced. Strong cigar lovers love this one. This is a beautifully constructed cigar that stays lit, burns consistently, and offers up copious amounts of smoke.
Brazilian maduro wrapper with a beautiful, slightly oily appearance and Habano binder surround a blend of Seco Cubano, Ligero Piloto Cubano, Ligero Olor Dominicano, and Ligero Nicaragua. The Red has all the nutty, spicy, and sweet flavors of the black...but in a full, bold body and pallet. If you like a strong cigar but insist it be balanced, this cigar will become your favorite.
The Corona is a slightly smaller ring gauge so, in this cigar you will find the flavors found in the Habano binder and Brazilian Maduro wrapper enhanced. Look to this one to be stronger and fuller bodied. A true connoisseur's cigar!
- Strength: Medium
- Body: Full

This is my big red wine cigar. It is ideal for pairing with a hearty Cabernet, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot, and any red wine that has a "red fruit flavor". You can also pair it with a Guinness Stout and a Speyside Scotch with fruity undertones and corn-sweet Bourbons like a Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek or Evan Williams.
Red Habano pairs nicely with medium to bold bodied red wines. In the smaller ring gauges it is bold enough to stand up to the strength of good brandies and bourbons, the sweetness of a good port, or the nutty flavors of a good sherry.
