Every puff of this petit corona leaves clear, profound impressions of cinnamon and nutmeg on the palate. Earthy undertones and a touch of lemon peel combine for a very complex smoke.

Hearty and straightforward with an earthy core of fresh tobacco flavor, woody notes and a pleasant coffee bean finish. Medium to full bodied.

Toasty and sweet with a medium-bodied palate of concentrated, dark red fruit paste and caramel flavors that really stick to the palate.

Small, box-pressed, dark and oily, this alluring cigar offers peppery, woody flavors, a light orange peel note and a coffee bean finish. Lots of flavor for a small cigar.

A well-rolled cigar with a rich, tawny hue. The draw is firm and delivers herbal, hardwood flavors with some spice and a dry finish. A mild- to medium-bodied cigar.

A solid little cigar that's box pressed and very dark. It's small and strong, loaded with pepper and wood flavors. The finish is a bit rough.

This small, box-pressed cigar has a loose draw. There are some pleasant flavors, including cedar and coffee, along with a few sharp notes. Easygoing and pleasant.
