Made with an exceptionally round head, this corona delivers a dense, chewy smoke, full of almond notes, citrus and fresh tobacco, all building to a very woody finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2014 | Score: 86

Grayish in appearance, this corona draws and burns evenly. First puffs are waxy and metallic before settling down to show woodiness.
