There's an enticingly rich color to the wrapper of this thin, pigtailed cigar. Initial nuttiness is balanced by floral elements and a touch of coffee bean.

Strong floral and lavender notes take on a malted milk quality along with some oaky properties before a nutty, brown sugary finish.

This skinny, pigtailed smoke draws and burns evenly. It's toasty and nutty with a warm peanut flavor and an earthy finish.

Though the draw on this thin cigar is firm, plenty of earthy, leathery flavor comes through along with touches of cocoa and orange peel.

Stitchy veins cover this otherwise attractive panetela, which draws and burns evenly. The smoke is soft and warm with wallnut notes and the sweetness of Scotch whisky.

Although the draw of this slim, pigtailed cigar is a bit firm, the cigar is toasty and nutty with touches of coffee and a mineral character on the finish.

A slim cigar with a pigtail cap. An even draw imparts balanced notes of sweet cedar, coffee bean and a touch of pepper. Complex and medium bodied.

This well-made panetela has a perfect pigtail. It draws well, with black pepper flavors, earthy, leathery notes and some sour touches as well.

A rich, oily wrapper that's nearly black. This pig-tailed cigar is aggressive and full-bodied, but it shows its youth.

This rough cigar has an attractive pig-tail. It burns perfectly and fills the mouth with thick smoke that is earthy and pungent with a hint of leather. A medium- to full-bodied cigar.
