Tasting Note
Charming in appearance with a tawny wrapper and tidy pigtail cap. The burn is a touch blistery, but the draw is even and full. An earthy core is well framed by spice, tea, floral notes and some leather.

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

Pale and pigtailed, this petit corona is more full-bodied than it looks. Initial notes of salt and dried flowers become sweet-and- spicy with a briny, rustic finish.

The lush, full draw of this solidly rolled petit corona shows a brawny, salty character with a ginger snap note and a bold, black pepper finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2015 | Score: 89

A pigtailed petit corona whose cocoa and woody notes also have floral qualities and mineral notes, making this pleasantly medium-bodied smoke.

This cigar is well-rolled with a gorgeous mini-pigtail. Initial notes of honeyed wood are followed by heartier, drier woody notes as the cigar progresses.

Though firm on the draw, this pigtailed cigar starts out very salty and earthy, but the cigar mellows considerably to impart almond flavor.

Topped with a pigtail cap, this cigar gives copious amounts of smoke on the draw, rich with wood, leather and toast flavors that segue to nougat and espresso.

Topped with a pigtail cap, this little corona has s firm draw, but packs a fair amount of woody, leather and earth notes in the smoke.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2007 | Score: 90

Topped with a pigtail cap, this corona is wrapped in a rich, natural leaf. It is toasty and spicy with an undercurrent of hazlenut and earth that leads to a long, wheaty finish. Nice strength for a small cigar.

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 09, 2006 | Score: 87

A short cigar with a smooth wrapper and pigtail cap. Cocoa, wood and spice notes come through a firm draw. Decent performance overall.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2006 | Score: 89

Well made, with a tight pigtail cap, this intensely cedary cigar has some earth, toast and mint notes. Balanced, rich and tasty, with a medium to full body.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 2004 | Score: 88

This pigtailed petit corona has a coarse golden wrapper. Despite a tight draw and an uneven burn, it has toasty medium-bodied flavors, including caramel and wood. The finish is cedary.
