Strikingly rich color to this gleaming little cigar, which is rich with earth, walnuts and leathery notes. The draw is even and full.

This attractive little smoke is slightly firm on the draw, but imparts lot of cappuccino character balanced by earthy and nutmeg flavors.

A handsome petit corona with an expertly crafted 3-seam cap. The leathery flavor core is framed by coffee bean, walnut notes and a fresh tobacco finish.

An attractive petit corona with a good cap and fine draw. There is a dusty woodiness to the smoke. Light spice and wood notes also come through. The finish is leathery with a citrus note.

Beautiful, with a fine burn and draw. The smoke has sweet leather and cocoa bean notes, with a toasty character. Medium to full bodied.

Toothy, veiny and extremely rough. This small cigar has draw problems. The smoke is charry and papery, with a very flat finish.

This well-made cigar has great color and shine. It draws easily, filling the mouth with earthy, toasty smoke with hints of leather and cedar.

This dark, rugged petit corona has a reddish-brown wrapper. It's a rich flavor bomb, with earthy, ashy flavors and a chalky finish. The cigar should be even better with age. Powerful.

A small cigar with an oily wrapper. The draw is fine, but the burn is uneven. It is surprisingly full-flavored, with touches of pepper, leather and nuts. It has a buttery, cedary finish.
