This pigtailed corona had a notably soft head, but offers lots of smoke on the draw. Floral notes lead to impressions of cashews and toasted vanilla, but the finish is a bit acidic.

Packed with tobacco, this corona is solid to the touch and has a firm draw as well. It's bold for such a small cigar, showing a leathery, salted caramel quality, spicy ginger and semisweet chocolate.

A pigtailed, tanned corona with a warm and toasty aroma. It has toasty, woody flavors erring on the milder side. A hint of roasted coffee was noted. The burn is off.

Attractive, dark and oily, with a pigtail tip, this cigar had some inconsistency of draw. It’s a slow starter that develops coffee and leather flavors, with a hint of cocoa and mint. A medium to full-bodied cigar.
