|A squarely pressed petit corona that starts out sharp and woody, but warms to show a walnut and mesquite quality with touches of vanilla and a licorice finish.|

Rolled in a coarse, scaly wrapper, this little cigar draws easily, imparting a woody, herbal smoke that carries hints of toffee before a graphite finish redolent of pencil lead.

The wrapper s spotty and veiny, but this little cigar smokes very evenly. Woody and spicy flavors come together quite pleasantly before a nougat finish. Tastes better than it looks.

There is good color to this slightly pressed little cigar, which is toasty, floral. The finish is nutty and pleasant.

A slim, speckled cigar with a good draw and burn. While rough out of the gate, it takes on toasty, savory flavors with a wisp of coconut. Medium bodied.

A wrinkled, olive drab wrapper. The draw is firm. It has a tangy, woody flavor with some vegetal notes and a slight bite.

A well-balanced cigar. It is quite mild, and has a slightly papery finish.

Oily, dark and solid, but it has a tight draw. This cigar has hints of sweetness and wood, but it's flat and unremarkable.

A well-made cigar with a firm draw. It has an oily texture to the smoke, and interesting sweetish tobacco flavors along with a solid cedary finish.
