There's a salty, nutty quality to this veiny petit corona that remains medium-bodied throughout. Hints of walnut shell lead to an oaky finish.

First puffs of this bumpy, gnarly petit corona are heavily floral but the cigar takes on a toasty character that develops to show roasted coffee bean, almonds and a recurring coffee-like finish.

A small cigar with a notably firm draw and distinctly earthy, leathery character. Sweet notes of vanilla bean and marshmallow balance the smoke.

23. An attractive little corona that produces a salt-and-pepper ash as it burns. The draw is a bit firm, but imparts lots of distinct leather and nut flavors with a balancing cocoa sweetness.

Hued with a comely Colorado color, this cigar has a firm draw, yet offers substantial toasty and coffee bean flavors. A medium-bodied smoking experience.

A very well-made petit corona with a reddish-brown wrapper. Rich, complex notes of cedar, coffee and toast complement a leathery, almondine finish.
