The cigar starts with hints of wood, black pepper and cocoa. At a half inch, the black pepper has become really smooth as it has paired up with a delicate earthy flavour.
A faint floral note is detectable on random draws. As the third comes to a close, some more intense earthiness joins in to replace the cocoa as the wood is up front and black pepper right behind. The strength in this third was medium for me.
The second third continues on with the wood, black pepper and earth notes, while a slight bitterness has joined in. All of the components are at an equal level and the overall flavours are really quite thought provoking.
As the third comes to a close, some wood and pleasant bitterness rejoin the earth tone. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly above medium; it’s ramping up and I can tell this finish is going to be rocket powered.
The final third continues on with the earth and wood, while the bitterness has gone away. Faint floral notes are detectable again
Shortly after, the bitterness returns. As the cigar comes to a close, the bitterness has eased up and it’s now super strong earth and wood. The strength is full and this continues right to the very end.
The burn on the cigar was very good from start to finish. Basically perfect, with no touch-ups required.
The draw was fantastic, with just the right amount of resistance. If you really want a flavour experience with this cigar, you can smoke it real slow.
Overall, I enjoyed the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona. I love the band and packaging, it’s a real funky 70s vibe. The blend itself is backed up the packaging; I liked the transitioning between each third and how all the tobacco played off of one another in the cigar.
This was a really balanced blend, and while it was closer to full in strength and body throughout, this is a cigar that a lot of people could smoke and enjoy.
The wood and black pepper notes in the beginning were awesome, and the subtle bitterness and floral notes that dropped in were a pleasant surprise.
The ending was like Rick James – Super Freak playing full blast. Intense!
Ross Rating: 8/10
What alcoholic drink would I pair the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona with?
Tiny Rebel You’re My Boy Blue Blueberry Muffin Pale Ale (33cl / 5.2%) – A rich, doughy pale ale with blueberry & vanilla to create a blueberry muffin in a can. Blue can, check. Blueberry, check.
Looks just like blueberry juice, check! This pale ale looks just like freshly squeezed blueberry juice for that extra icing on the… muffin.
What soft drink would I pair the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona with?
Keep it simple and fresh with a glass of sparkling mineral water.
Would I smoke the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona again?
It’s an intense cigar, not only punchy in flavour but full spectrum flavour. I feel it gives a great representation of what Honduran cigars are all about.
A must try, and I will be having another one in the near future in either a different vitola or the new McFly cigar from Oscar Valladares.
