Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2016 | Score: 88

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 little cigar with some visible veins on the wrapper. An even draw imparts plenty of fresh tobacco flavor along with some coffee and toast flavors.

Covered in a tawny looking wrapper and finished with a neat pigtail cap. The cigar is solid to the touch, but smokes evenly with a n open draw. Coffee, leather and wood are the primay flavors present in this tasty smoke.

This good looking cigar has a pigtail. It’s dry, rich and elegant, with café au lait flavor and superb balance. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 22, 2005 | Score: 87

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.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2004 | Score: 89

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.

This pigtailed corona starts out a little slow, then opens up with fine balanced flavors, including coffee, leather and cocoa. It draws well and is medium to full in body.
