Mere moments before being declared legally dead, Herfin’ Heads returns with a joint review of the MBombay Corojo Oscuro. It’s billed on the Bombay Tobak website as “a flavorforward creation containing balanced strength and a full bodied experience. With harmonious notes of ground coffee, spice, dark chocolate, and residual sweetness…”
As we have done in the past, Ben and I smoke two different vitolas from the line and discuss it at intervals through the experience. Ben burns the Belicoso size (5 x 52) while I smoke the attractively dark and oily Perfecto (5 1/2 x 50). MBombay cigars have gotten a lot of mentions on social media lately, let’s find out if the Corojo Oscuro lives up to the hype.

Great to see the Hole in the Wall Gang back, although I didn’t realize that Sundance was a rocketeer. I had a Classic a couple of years ago, and enjoyed it quite a lot, but have not have had any of the MBombay since. Unfortunate that you guys had a less than stellar experience considering the prices on these.
The marketing reminds me of the old ‘Should have been a Don Collins!’ campaign.
