Lots of dense smoke pours out of this softly pressed corona. It's spicy with wasabi and horseradish notes, balanced by nuts and a toffee sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2013 | Score: 91

A gutsy and bold smoke that imparts lots of flavor for such a small cigar. It offers notes of cedar, earth and leather before a long cocoa finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2009 | Score: 87

This little cigar has a rough wrapper but very lush draw. Salty flavors are predominant on the palate before mineral notes give way to a slightly dry finish.
