Review: Black Star Line Cigars El Milagro Corojo

The El Milagro Corojo from Black Star Line Cigars celebrates “the artistry of Aganorsa Leaf”. This core line offering from the boutique brand is a Nicaraguan Puro, containing famed Aganorsa tobacco, and is available in one vitola - 6 x 46. I have been a fan of both El Milagro blends and find they both scratch a unique itch for me. I had an itch this morning for the Corojo, so I grabbed one and figured it was time for a review.

This El Milagro Corojo has a clean, medium brown. I like the simple band design and color choice against this wrapper. It is firmly packed but not too dense. Pre light presents the scent of baking spices and grain. The cold draw is a musty cherry and cacao. First light brings about medium-full bodied smoke with medium flavors of grains, citrus, and wood. The retrohale, right off the bat, adds bright sweetness and pepper. After about 3/4” in there is more tanginess to the citrus and I am picking up a little dark chocolate on the finish. The retrohale has seen the pepper drop a touch and the addition of a lot of cream. Midway through the second third the draw has taken on a cane sugar sweetness with some creamy wood and still a touch of citrus. The retrohale amplifies those notes. The performance has been flawless. The flavor is nearly full here at the end of the second third. An earthiness and pepper have made an appearance. Into the band the pepper and earth remain prominent. Coming to an end at just over an hour, the profile remained unchanged and the performance was perfect to the end.

Overall Experience

Overall this is truly a masterclass in creating a Nicaraguan puro with famed tobacco. It provides ample flavor and heft, without smacking you with strength. It also offers a transitional experience that allows you to taste the sweet citrusy qualities of Nicaragun tobacco, followed by the earthy, peppery components. I believe this cigar is fit for a lot of palates and is something you should try. The only smoker that would probably be dissatisfied is one that does not particularly care for Aganorsa tobacco specifically.

Have you smoked this one? Let me know your thoughts!
