This subtley pressed petit corona is a primarily cedary, peppery smoke with hints of oolong tea, minerals and walnut. The draw is lush for such a small cigar.

Salty and earthy from the start, this cigar takes on toasted marshmallow character and woody notes. Occasional black cherry flavors complement this tasty smoke.

This little box-pressed cigar has a firm draw but is full of complex nutty flavors ranging from almonds to walnuts. A sweetness comes through on the finish making this cigar medium bodied and flavorful.

A small cigar with a nice cap and an oily wrapper. It offers a wide spectrum of flavors from spicy, rich woods to creamy, leather notes. The finish is spicy and full.
