This tan little smoke draws and burns perfectly, offering a vaguely nutty smoke that becomes grassy and papery.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2012 | Score: 88

A well-rolled little smoke with a bit of a firm draw. It's a mostly wood-tasting smoke with some subtle hints of leather, coffee and a touch of mustiness.

A petit corona with good-looking wrapper. It is woody and papery with some earth notes and harshness on the finish.

This petit corona is well built with a light brown wrapper. Though the draw is good, the burn is off. It has earthy flavors with notes of leather and black pepper on the finish.
