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.

A dark, full-bodied smoke full of woody flavor, cocoa notes and a dried fruit finish. The draw and burn stay full and even.

Score: 87
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.
