A firm draw on this little medium-bodied cigar still imparts plenty of cedary, leathery notes, some orange peel and a floral finish.

With a shiny, oily wrapper, this petit corona has an inconsistent burn. It has hints of oatmeal, cinnamon and cocoa. It could use more depth.

A smooth petit corona with a beautiful three-seam cap. It has a spicy aroma and a loose draw. Flavors of wood and spice lead to a cedary finish. Strong for a tiny cigar.

The wrapper leaf on this cigar is poorly stretched, but it has nice color. Despite its unassuming size, It's a spunky, peppery smoke with hints of ginger, grass and leather. Some rough edges on the finish.

The taste is really packed into this stubby cigar. Solid as a brick, it delivers rich, woodsy flavors, and burns and draws like a dream. A cedary finish.
