Tasting Note
First puffs of this bumpy, gnarly petit corona are heavily floral but the cigar takes on a toasty character that develops to show roasted coffee bean, almonds and a recurring coffee-like finish.

There's a salty, nutty quality to this veiny petit corona that remains medium-bodied throughout. Hints of walnut shell lead to an oaky finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2013 | Score: 91

A small cigar with a notably firm draw and distinctly earthy, leathery character. Sweet notes of vanilla bean and marshmallow balance the smoke.

Though the draw on this dark little cigar is firm, each puff is full of leather and earth, leaving rich tobacco notes on the finish.

23. An attractive little corona that produces a salt-and-pepper ash as it burns. The draw is a bit firm, but imparts lots of distinct leather and nut flavors with a balancing cocoa sweetness.

Hued with a comely Colorado color, this cigar has a firm draw, yet offers substantial toasty and coffee bean flavors. A medium-bodied smoking experience.

A very well-made petit corona with a reddish-brown wrapper. Rich, complex notes of cedar, coffee and toast complement a leathery, almondine finish.
