Review: Fire by Indian Tabac Mini-Corona Maduro
I picked this cigar up a while back, why I don’t know they were just calling my name. Since these are being pushed on us so hard from some on-line vendors I thought I would review it. I picked the Mini because at the time I got these I was looking for a smaller smoke for my shorter drives around town. You can get these in many different sizes from a 40 to 52 ring size. It looks almost evil with the very dark Costa Rica wrapper. I want to say that these have been sitting in my humidor for a couple months. I smoked two within a week of getting them and they were tight and hard to smoke. So please keep in mind that humi time is a must with these for mine at least.
Quote from Indian Tabac site:
“Triple fermented wrapper and fillers – a very Cubanesque aroma with a savory, complex and sweet taste. The best value on the premium cigar market. Your mouth will catch fire without burning a hole in your pocket!”
Length/Ring: 4 x 40
Shape: Petite Corona
Wrapper: Costa Rica
Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler: Honduras and Nicaragua
Pre-light: I do not find much, has a small spice tobacco taste and a pretty firm draw with good construction. I have had about 7 or 8 of these since I have received them and as I said above the first couple were tight. After over a month in the humidor the next 5 or 6 seemed to have a nice draw. This cigar seems to be firm but not to bad.
1/3 The light was easy and fast. This Fire is a little mild with a good ash, the burn is better than I have seen on more expensive cigars. The ash dropped at about an inch with a small tap.
2/3 The draw opens up to a nice amount of smoke. The spice kicks in a little and you get more of a leather flavor. This cigar has a nice aroma that floats around the room. The ash got a little fragile and dropped on me at about 3/4 inch but the burn is hanging in for the most part. I have not had to fix anything.
Finish: Up to this point this cigar has had a cool burn but it picks up toward the end. A little more spice comes out but nothing to “strong” but spicy. The draw seems to firm up a little but not to much, it still has a good draw. The closer to the end of this cigar the hotter it gets but I’m sure being a smaller cigar has something to do with it.
Overall this is a unique looking cigar that is a pleasant smoke. This cigar for me is not a yard cigar or a smoke to have on a hot summer day. I enjoy these in the evening sitting on the porch watching my son chase lightning bugs around the yard. I’m glad I have a couple more of these in the humidor. I will order more of these but will try my best to let them sit a couple months. You can get these so cheap on C-Bid that it is well worth picking some up and giving them a try.
