This dark little smoke forms a very white ash as it burns. Notes of coffee and oak combine with hints of sour cherry and an oaky finish.

Gnarly and dark in appearance, this petit corona offers a substantial draw for such a small smoke. It's woody and cedary, with touches of nuts and a bit of vanilla.

This dark cigar forms a bright white ash as it burns. First puffs are herbal and piney before warming to show earth, wood and vanilla bean.

Score: 89
The smoke of this small cigar is very thick and dense for such a petit size. It’s meaty with a leathery core. Citrus notes and cedar complement the savor flavors.

A small, oily corona packed with lots of tobacco. It has a very spicy leathery start, but does not sustain the flavors, which turn woody and muted.
