(20 Reviews) | Write a review

This corona, packaged in a bundle of 20, is perfect for the mild smoker who is looking for something quick. Its blend of aged tobaccos from Honduras and the Dominican makes it light and smooth. It then uses a dark Maduro wrapper, which gives it that bold, rich taste and a hint of espresso. If you’re looking for something fast, robust, and delicious…this corona is the one for you.

Overall very good

Rich B. on 06/20/15

When these first came out, they were consistently excellent, not only for the price, but in their own right as a cigar. They haven't been quite as good lately. As many have noted, the draw is somewhat tight. Not only does this take much of the relaxation out of the smoke, but it also tends to interfere with the taste, diminishing the amount of smoke entering the mouth while heating the cigar up a bit too much. It's not so bad as to be a deal-breaker, but just a little extra quality control at the factory and this cigar could return to where it was before. Before the cigar boom, when I was a new cigar smoker, I used to smoke mostly Arturo Fuente Privada #1, which I bought from a JR outlet at about $35.00/box, tax included. Those days are gone for good, so over the years, I've looked for substitutes, mostly in vain. Then I found Casa de Garcia, which isn't quite as much enjoyment as a Fuente, and Ashton, or an RyJ, but about 75% of the enjoyment when their at their best, for a tiny fraction of the price. I'll take it.

Tight But Alright

Mike on 03/21/15

The rich maduro flavor is somewhat marred by a consistently tight draw. The other CdGs are not so tight. I still like them, though. They are a great value.

Almost there...

Daniel on 03/17/15

Tight draw interferes with one of the tastiest blends out there at a value price point.

Quality Cigar for the Price

Larry Peoples, Sr on 10/01/15

I thought I had ordered the Natural CDG again, but I found that I had ordered the Madura's. But I'm glad I did. The taste is outstanding. No throat burn like I've had with some other Maduro brands. The draw is a little bit tight, but I've found that spiking instead of cutting this cigar reduces that. Overall a quality cigar for the price. I'll come back to CDG Maduro's again.

Draw Has Improved!

Mike on 09/21/15

Back in March I wrote that the draw on these cigars was too tight. Well, I am now on my fourth bundle in a row that has just about perfect draw. These cigars are much improved. Thank you, Casa de Garcia!

best budget smoke

robert on 07/22/15

i've tried many other sizes of casa de garcia, and i enjoy the corona the best. i use a draw poker which vastly improves an annoying tight draw. the taste is a big plus for the price. my every day cigar.

corona and robusto

rm on 08/01/15

cdg maduro is my go to smoke. i prefer the corona and robusto. using a draw poker solved the hard draw problem quite nicely. tried several other brands in this price range, and have been more than satisfied with cdg.

A positive review

Norm on 01/18/16

A well balanced inexpensive quality smoke. Nice corona size for that "in between" smoke. Would definitely recommend. I have found no issues with the draw using a V cut.

Disappointing, even for the low price

Kaos on 04/10/16

This a SHORT FILLER Cigar. I cut it careful but was spitting out bits of filler on every puff. The wrapper on several were veiny and coarse like sandpaper. The draw was OK but the taste didn't get complex util 1/2 way through. It had a peppery note but not unique enough to leave me impressed or satisfied. Will go for the JR Alternatives and not re-order the Casa again

Always have a nice smoke available.

emcgrath on 01/13/16

Very good smoke for the price. I needed something to have around for guests and not so special guests that would still hold up. These are a great value.

Casa D

EA Ash on 07/13/15

A real good cheap cigar. I've heard these are Montecristo seconds (my favorite cigar). Hard to find a better tasting value cigar. They draw very well and never finish hot.

Smoky Treat

Marco Mexico on 12/06/15

I really like this smoky treat. It's very flavorful. The draw requires some strength it is tight. A great value.....I'm impressed with Casa de Garcia products

Great Value

cecwood on 10/24/15

Better than some 'so called' premium cigars on the mkt. Great flavor & burn, lots of smoke. The mads are occasionally 'gritty' on the tip. I would give the 'edge' to the natural wrapper but both are excellent cigars for the $ or not.

Well Worth the Price and really Worth the Time.

Plantek on 10/24/15

What great smoke. Plenty of flavor with mild sweet cocoa yet dark and bold. I really enjoy them.

Sleeping Beauties

cecwood on 05/07/16

These arrived about a week ago, another JR Daily auction 'grab'. I'm not crazy about the new bands, I thought the old white bands gave the cigars a touch of 'class'. Any way, these cigars need about a month of humidor time to age, since I have plenty of hand I'll have to wait to review these. I don't anticipate any changes from my last review.
