Re: DE UnderCrown Corona Viva Review

By far my personal favorite of the Undercrown line - I smoke quite a few of these.

Re: DE UnderCrown Corona Viva Review

This is becoming one of my go to smokes as well. I have had about 4 or 5 more of the corona viva's since this review. I really enjoy them, almost as much as the LP#9.

I had the pleasure of smoking one of these this week thanks to Matthew (Quine).

What a fantastic cigar! Every aspect from the pre light aroma and cold draw to the final nub was top notch. The thick smoke is something to behold...This one is outta the park by a country mile.

Thanks for the review and pics!

Re: DE UnderCrown Corona Viva Review

Nice review and I agree, this has become one of my "go to" smokes. I love the look of the wrapper and the construction of the cigar. Besides this vitola I've smoked the robusto in this line and I think it has a shade more flavor which means that for my palate, the filler in this stick is more flavorful than the wrapper, but they're pretty close and I like these a lot.

Im glad you like the format... I think I will make it standard for my reviews. I think its funny.

I paid about 9 bucks for all three corona viva's from my local B&M. I assume they can be found cheaper online.

Nice review! Glad you kept the format from the previous as I find it very entertaining! I'm excited to find this stick and give it a go. I've only smoked the robusto and gran toro so far, and they can be found locally for a decent price. We shall see where this one lands on the price-point.

Burn/Ash: /5
No runs, no cannoning, nothing, great burn. The cigar stayed lit, even in 5 minute times when I had to put it down. The smoke output was insane! Dew estate cigars, mostly the Undercrown and the Liga's are well known for their" choo choo train" like smoke output. The draw was good, but a tad of resistance, which I really liked. The ash held on for about 1/2 to 1 inch at a time. I purged this cigar alot, so the ash was not very solid for me, but if you do not purge alot, It will hold on great for you. 5 spanks out of 5 on the burn!

Overall: :sl:sl:sl:sl:sl/5
I tired my best to find something not to like about this highly raved stick... but I couldn't. Its great in all aspects. Looks good, smokes good, taste good. What more can I ask for. I don't mind paying a bit extra for good quality, but I really think this stick is over priced becasue of the hype and popularity. The Undercrown series really reminds me of a toned down Liga No.9 in all forms. They both have alot of similar characteristics. I think this would be a good stick for ageing maybe 2 or 3 years at the most. Overall it was a solid, and well enjoyed medium stick. 5 bitch slaps out of 5 overall.
