Studio Tobac Cigar Event

We’ve got another awesome event coming into town next week. The Studio Tobac Event will be at the Heathrow store Friday, July 27th from 6:00 - 11:00, and will be at the Sand Lake store Saturday, July 28th from 5:00-10:00. Studio Tobac includes Cain and Nub cigars.
One of Cain’s cigars, the Cain F, is a beast of a cigar.  As a Nicaraguan puro, one would expect a full bodied cigar. That's before taking the 82% ligero filler, that is a mix of Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega ligeros.  This mix of ligero creates a potent flavor profile that actually comes off very smooth.  The main tasting notes are of spice that last the entire cigar, with hints of wood after the first inch or so.  Overall this cigar is a full bodied delight, and is definitely worth picking up next weekend during the event.
There are going to be awesome deals going on for box purchases. Buy 1 box: get a sampler box and a swag bag that has a cutter, matches, and stickers.  Buy 2 boxes: get 2 sampler boxes, the swag bag, a car ashtray, and a Cain tabletop lighter.  Buy 3 boxes: get 3 sampler boxes, swag bag, car ashtray, Cain tabletop lighter, a ceramic leaf ashtray and a hat!  Those are some crazy deals on box purchases! Make sure to stop by next weekend, and bring some friends!

Ratzilla is Coming!!

Ratzilla will unleashed this Saturday, July 21st, at a Corona Cigar near you!  The Ratzilla is a very limited edition, event only cigar from Drew Estate, the creators of Liga Privada.  Only 500 bundles of 12 were rolled due to the limited availability of the Connecticut River Valley Habano wrapper.  This is the same wrapper used for the T52's which many know of as the cause behind the infamous shortage. This cigar is wonderful, from the straight burn to the open draw, there are no flaws in it's construction.  The Ratzilla starts off as a medium bodied cigar and builds to full by the end.  It never got harsh, and the flavors were consistent throughout.  The main tasting note was of spice, namely pepper, that mellows through the cigar.  There are also light notes of coffee, which slowly changes to mocha by the end of the cigar.   Make sure to stop by at any time Saturday, July 21st, at any Corona Cigar location, and pick up some Ratzillas! (1 Bundle per customer to ensure more people get a chance to try this great cigar)  The first 10 customers who purchase bundles will receive a free Drew Estate hat We will not be taking phone or email orders for the Ratzilla prior to July 21st.

Corona Cigar Co's Malt of the Month

Here at Corona Cigar Co we love our feature Malts. Every month we run specials on fantastic single malts, giving you the option of trying a new scotch! What could make this better you ask? There's savings on every Malt of the Month! This month we are featuring three Glenlivets. The 18:  A single malt that’s a light bronze color. With a nice medium body texture comes a slightly nutty taste, with hints of caramel.  Perfect for beginners, and widely known to seasoned connoisseurs. This scotch finishes very smooth, and would pair perfectly with a Davidoff Millenium blend. The 21:  This is a caramel colored single malt that's scent leaves the palate wanting more.  The scotch starts full bodied, but fades quickly.  A sweet flavor reminiscent of apples is present mixed with a potent peat back note.  The malt is definitely sweet, but not overbearing. Pick up a Davidoff Maduro with this scotch and let the good times commence. The 25:  Dark bronze in color lends one to expect some earthy tones to the scotch.  Notes of cedar are immediately tasted, lending a woody yet sweet taste to this single malt.  Superbly smooth and satisfying, this malt pairs perfectly with a Davidoff Puro D’oro.

Celebrate the 4th of July with a Roman Candle!

Since the 4th of July is coming up fast, we figured there's no better cigar to talk about than the Viaje Roman Candle.  This new cigar really packs a punch, at a whopping 9 inches in length and 50 ring gauge, it is more like the entire fireworks show!   Like most Viaje's this is a puro Nicaraguan with plenty of power, and plenty of flavor.  It starts off with a light kick of pepper, and it builds up in spice with a sweet taste as an undertone.  At first the cigar seems like a medium-full, but an inch or so in, you can tell it's only going to get stronger. By midway it reaches a full bodied cigar, and continues with spice and a light sweetness. So if you're getting ready for a long night of barbecue, fireworks, and fun, make sure to pick up a Viaje Roman Candle for you and your pals while you celebrate!
