Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2017 | Score: 89

Small and stubby with a lopsided cap, this cigar begins floral and bready before picking up a salty earthiness. The finish leaves a bit of grit on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2016 | Score: 89

The draw of this mini corona is firm, but still delivers a nutty smoke complemented by pleasant touches of coffee and cocoa bean.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2015 | Score: 90

There's strong tobacco packed into this little corona, and it produces a chewy, earthy smoke full of leather and nuts.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Feb 07, 2012 | Score: 91

A dark, oily and short smoke whose first puffs deliver a bracing shot of up-front salty flavors, which are counter- balanced by walnut notes and hints of orange peel.
