Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2017 | Score: 89

Pale and pigtailed, this petit corona is more full-bodied than it looks. Initial notes of salt and dried flowers become sweet-and- spicy with a briny, rustic finish.

A pigtailed petit corona whose cocoa and woody notes also have floral qualities and mineral notes, making this pleasantly medium-bodied smoke.

This cigar is well-rolled with a gorgeous mini-pigtail. Initial notes of honeyed wood are followed by heartier, drier woody notes as the cigar progresses.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2012 | Score: 90

Though firm on the draw, this pigtailed cigar starts out very salty and earthy, but the cigar mellows considerably to impart almond flavor.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2011 | Score: 92

Charming in appearance with a tawny wrapper and tidy pigtail cap. The burn is a touch blistery, but the draw is even and full. An earthy core is well framed by spice, tea, floral notes and some leather.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2009 | Score: 91

Topped with a pigtail cap, this cigar gives copious amounts of smoke on the draw, rich with wood, leather and toast flavors that segue to nougat and espresso.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2008 | Score: 89

Topped with a pigtail cap, this little corona has s firm draw, but packs a fair amount of woody, leather and earth notes in the smoke.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2007 | Score: 90

Topped with a pigtail cap, this corona is wrapped in a rich, natural leaf. It is toasty and spicy with an undercurrent of hazlenut and earth that leads to a long, wheaty finish. Nice strength for a small cigar.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 09, 2006 | Score: 87

A short cigar with a smooth wrapper and pigtail cap. Cocoa, wood and spice notes come through a firm draw. Decent performance overall.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2006 | Score: 89

Well made, with a tight pigtail cap, this intensely cedary cigar has some earth, toast and mint notes. Balanced, rich and tasty, with a medium to full body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This pigtailed petit corona has a coarse golden wrapper. Despite a tight draw and an uneven burn, it has toasty medium-bodied flavors, including caramel and wood. The finish is cedary.
