This is certainly the best of the series to date by all accounts. Displaying a superior balance with loads of toast, deep spice and hints of nuts, this cigar starts off with earthy undertones similar to it's sister cigar, the Serie D No. 4 Robusto, but with richer spiciness. From there it just gets deeper, darker, richer and stronger - reminiscent of a Romeo Exhibicion #4, but ultimately with more longevity - gradually becoming a powerhouse typical of the higher-end Partagas lines. It's simply a fantastic cigar - a touch firmly packed, but well rounded and the perfect dimension - at 5.5 inches by a 46 ring gauge, the Corona Gorda is one of my favorite sizes of cigar. And this one smokes so well now, it's hard to imagine it's potential for greatness with a little ageing.
