Pre-light Experience

The wrapper on the FLVR Yacht Rock Corona is medium brown with some darker spots and there are some decently raised veins present. The seams are smooth while the caps are decently applied. The band is a dark reddish-brown along with yellow, orange and red and denotes the brand and the line. The aroma from the wrapper is a mix of wood and Bottle Caps candy sweetness. The foot brings a syrupy version of the same candy sweetness. The pre-light draw brings a decent level of sweetness from the cap which is a cola and vanilla combination. Not really getting anything from the actual draw.

First Third

The cigar begins with toasted, stale cedar and some earth, along with the sweet cola and vanilla combination on my lips from the wrapper. At a half inch in, a light chalkiness joins the profile. The retrohale is toasted cedar and light chalkiness. As the third comes to a close, the chalkiness picks up to become even with the earth, while the toasted, stale cedar remains up front. There is still a light cola/vanilla sweetness on my lips from the wrapper. The strength was mild-medium.

Second Third

As the second third begins, the chalkiness is now in between the toasted cedar and earth. At a half inch in, a light ashiness joins the profile. The retrohale is toasted, stale cedar and light chalkiness. At an inch in, the chalkiness is now even with the toasted, stale cedar up front. As the third comes to a close, the cedar gains a light char and there is the slightest of sweetness still on my lips from the wrapper. The strength remained at mild-medium.

Final Third

As the final third begins, the light charred cedar is just ahead of the chalkiness with earth behind and light ashiness in the background. The retrohale remains toasted, stale cedar and light chalkiness. As the cigar wraps up, the lightly charred cedar is just ahead of the chalkiness with earth behind and light chalkiness in the background. The strength bumped up to slightly below medium.

Burn

The burn line was straight throughout and the ash held on in one inch increments.

Draw

The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.

Overall

The cigar began with toasted, stale cedar and some earth, along with the sweet cola and vanilla combination on my lips from the wrapper. A light chalkiness joined in a bit later. The second third saw a light ashiness join in and the cedar gained a light char. The final third saw the light sweetness on my lips from the wrapper depart. The FLVR Yacht Rock Corona had a fairly average start as other than the flavor from the wrapper, the smoking experience wasn’t all that intriguing. It dropped down a level from the second third on as the toast level transitioned to char and some ashiness was present. Overall, for a flavored cigar, it’s about what I expect from them. Other than the pre-light and the flavor from the wrapper, you’re not in for a good time and this cigar was exactly that. I’ll try some of the other variations, but I’m not expecting much different than this.
