Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Aug 01, 2016
A predominantly earthy smoke that also imparts salty notes and touches of coffee and minerals despite its notably firm draw.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Apr 01, 2015
Every puff of this petit corona leaves clear, profound impressions of cinnamon and nutmeg on the palate. Earthy undertones and a touch of lemon peel combine for a very complex smoke.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Oct 01, 2013
Hearty and straightforward with an earthy core of fresh tobacco flavor, woody notes and a pleasant coffee bean finish. Medium to full bodied.
Issue: Cigar Insider, Apr 27, 2010
Small, box-pressed, dark and oily, this alluring cigar offers peppery, woody flavors, a light orange peel note and a coffee bean finish. Lots of flavor for a small cigar.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Apr 01, 2009
A well made little cigar with a great draw, showing tea cedar and nutty flavors. A round, medium-bodied smoke.
Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jun 01, 2007
A well-rolled cigar with a rich, tawny hue. The draw is firm and delivers herbal, hardwood flavors with some spice and a dry finish. A mild- to medium-bodied cigar.
Issue: Cigar Insider, May 01, 1999
A solid little cigar that's box pressed and very dark. It's small and strong, loaded with pepper and wood flavors. The finish is a bit rough.
Issue: Cigar Insider, Jul 01, 1996
This small, box-pressed cigar has a loose draw. There are some pleasant flavors, including cedar and coffee, along with a few sharp notes. Easygoing and pleasant.
