Brand: Obsidian Country: Nicaragua
Size: Mini Corona 4.5 x 44 Wrapper: Brazilian Habano
The Label Factor:
Points for originality here. The black label on this Obsidian Mini Corona covers most the cigar and gives the whole thing a dark, mysterious, semi-goth look. As a fan of dark, oily cigars, I initially was drawn to this stick by the label. I mistook the label for the wrapper and was shocked to see such a dark black cigar. Well, turns out I am dumb and the label is just humongous. The Obsidian definitely has some curb appeal though. Dark label with a cool white logo really made this cigar stand out on the shelf when I was shopping around at the Cigars International B&M in Easton PA the other week. I’m a sucker for good marketing so I picked up a few.
If I have to complain here, I would say that I like to smoke a cigar with the label on. No good reason for this other than it makes me feel cooler to smoke with a label. In my world, 90% of the things I do, I do to look cool.
