The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The cigar began with toasted oak, mustiness and concentrated baking spice. The baking spice mellowed fairly quickly and the baking spice left towards the end of the first third. Some char joined in the final third as did a light vegetal note. The burn was a bit of an issue and probably didn’t help the overall flavor experience. Strength was medium the whole way. The Micallef Migdalia Corona Extra started with a simple but nice flavor profile, but once it reached the second third it was fairly average and continued that way throughout. Micallef is still a newer brand to me, and with a large portfolio already, there is a lot to try. I liked how this cigar started, but it’s probably not something I’ll be in a hurry to revisit, but I’m still interested in smoking through their various lines.
