No one at Altadis will outright admit to it, but since they moved production of this cigar from Honduras to the Dominican Republic, this smoke is surely the exact same cigar as Playboy by Don Diego, but under a different name. They're made by the same manufacturer, the blends are listed the same, they taste the same, they look the same, even the box is almost identical. We're thinkin' that they must have just thrown La Corona bands on a few extra Playboy cigars they had laying around. So if you like the Playboy line, we know you're going to enjoy this one.
Offering a beautiful Connecticut wrapper, Dominican Binder, and long-filler of Dominican leaves, the La Corona is a tasty, medium to full-bodied cigar. It has a core of spiciness and a slight tartness in the finish. Smooth and flavorful with a long, slow burn, we found it very smooth and offering an easy draw.
