|Covered in a matte natural wrapper, this corona draws well, delivering sweet wood and earth flavors that are balanced out with sweet cocoa notes. A pleasant, medium-bodied cigar.|

A nicely made corona with a pale wrapper. It has a perfect burn. The cigar is leathery and earthy, with touches of orange peel, toast and cedar. Medium to full bodied.

Great color on this firm cigar, with has a tight draw but a nice burn. It's tangy, woody and a bit spicy, with muddled flavors. Medium bodied.

A cigar that doesn't offer up everything it promises. Beautiful wrapper, but a slight tartness suggests it is too young. Some notes of leather with coffee beans.

Another well-made, beautiful cigar. It has great balance, even though it will improve with age. There is a some sweet wood notes, and a light spiciness, including pepper. Sweet wood finish. A full-bodied, rich cigar with nutmeg and earthy flavors. It is very well-balanced with a long, cedery finish. A good cigar, but slightly disappointing, with a tough draw and little flavor.
