    The inspiration for this review is Dutch aficionado Coenraad's review of the new Quai d'Oray No. 50.

    The first flavors tell me it's been long enough, though.

    A lot of sophisticated flavors in this first inch. Seems like every draw is different.

    Speaking of draw, it's a bit tight and I wouldn't mind getting some more smoke either.

    The second half of this corona is not as interesting as the first. The draw gets ever tighter too. Maybe I should do a purge.

    Draw slightly improved but flavors still largely the same. I do detect a hint of sweetness every now and then but it's mostly earh and leather.
