REVIEW: Blue Label

This is a fine ‘anytime’ smoke. It offers a modest time-commitment (20-30 minutes) but does not short-change you on quality or taste.

The Blue Label corona by Gran Habano is ideal for rainy days, weekends, or to hand out to friends and family.

The burn is uneven, however, and can send hot embers flying around if you’re not careful. This stick does not hold ash well.

That said, it’s a cigar worth trying. If you’re new to smoking or a ‘veteran,’ this one is a must for any well-balanced cigar collection.

Well done.

  1. Maybe you can settle this for me. My buddy says you should always take the label off a cigar when you smoke it. I like to keep the label on. Who’s right?

    • This is a tough one with no real solution. It boils down to personal preference.

      Some people like to take the label off before smoking. Others like to leave it on as a ‘reference’ on how far they down they can smoke a cigar, or as a spot where they can hold it. Still others, specifically those who are smoking higher end cigars, keep the label on as a sort of status symbol, to show everyone what kind of stick they’re smoking.

      I, personally, always take the label off before smoking. If you choose to do this, however, be advised that the labels are put on using an adhesive, so it’s important to take it off slowly to avoid tearing the wrapper.

      Bottom line, there’s no ‘right’ answer. It’s totally up to the smoker. Sorry I couldn’t settle your bet!

      Thanks for commenting. 🙂 ppg
