This Geek Critique has been generously sponsored by headfirst (Gary).

The Cigar: Black Label Trading Company Deliverance Porcelain Corona Gorda

The Specs:
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade
Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
Filler: Nicaragua, Pennsylvania
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium
Size: 5.5" x 48

Shipping: US and Canadian addresses only

Due Date: January 25, 2023

The Hype:
The Porcelain was originally a limited edition line extension of the Deliverance line released December 2018. In June 2019, it was announced that it would be joining the portfolio as a regular production. James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Company, and partner at Oveja Negra, decided to to go in a direction that is seemingly a bit different from the company's signature style of full-bodied, full strength cigars by giving the new Deliverance Porcelain blend a beautiful Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and USA Pennsylvania. According to Brown, "...the Connecticut wrapper is geared towards our consumers."

The Reviewers:
Open to Regular members in good standing, but volunteers already doing the January review should give others a chance before volunteering. This review will be due by January 25, so please take into account your schedule and only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Gary will make the final selection.

Note[/i]: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to headfirst for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.

Hey! How come 'Habana' is written on here with a Sharpie ?!?

A day without whiskey is like . . . just kidding, I have no idea!

My people skills are just fine. It's my tolerance for idiots that needs work!

Todd and Brian, glad to have you.

     I'll step up if no one else is going to.
I am not concerned about what you think as I can tell you don't do it often.

I used to be a people person, but then people ruined that for me.

Man I can't remember what I sent to who, some extra singles I had on hand.  Nothing too exciting on the hitchikers but no cigar should travel alone!
