Thank you for adding GTO cigars to your April brand of the month. I smoked first the the Corona in Maduro I believe, it is easily in my top five cigars of all time. It smoked beautifully perfect burn and the favors were outstanding with notes of cinnamon and chocolate from first light to the cool nub. I also got notes of cherry from time to time. It smoked similar to a Drew Estate constantly putting off the very enjoyable foot smoke. I give this cigar a 95.
