DESCRIPTION: The C&C Corojo features a reddish brown Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. Corojo is the leaf that made Cuban cigars famous and although much of today’s Corojo is a hybrid of the original it nonetheless is one of my favorite wrapper leaves.
The cigar sports a Dominican binder and a filler blend comprised of Dominican long-fillers. The Corojo is finished with a triple cap at the head, which also caps the attempt to model these cigars after the old Cuban style.
At right around $4.00 per stick, these are definitely worth a second look. And that’s exactly what I have planned for you today as I feature the 5-inch by 50 ring gauge C&C Corojo Robusto.
FEATURED LIBATION: Mbeya Reserve Coffee from Tanzania
Today’s Tanzanian coffee comes from Mbeya, which is in the southern part of the country. Mbeya coffee farms sit high on the volcanic slopes that border Lake Nyassa and this coffee today is 100% Arabica and it comes from our friends at Gevalia Kaffe Company.
