Originally blended for the San Diego Pipe Club, Coronado Oriental has plenty of Orientals and Cyprian Latakia with a little silky, creamy unsweetened black cavendish to mildly smooth the edges of your daily smoke.
The Orientals offer an abundance of earth, wood, herbs, floralness, vegetation, and some buttery sweetness, spice and sourness as they take a small lead. The musty sweet Cyprian Latakia provides a lot of smoke, wood, earth, floralness, and some sourness along with a little spice as a close competitor. The mildly creamy, unsweetened black cavendish tames many of the rough edges. Its position here is a couple of notches above the condiment line. The strength is a step past the medium mark. The taste level is a slot past that. The nic-hit is a shade below medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent sweet and sour, floral, spicy, campfire flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Has a tolerable room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and repeatable for the less experienced. Three and a half stars.
