Because the cigar is a small petit corona I will be going by halves. I could go by thirds but I think the middle third would just be a blend of the first and third. The cigar begins with wonderful flavors of herbs, coffee, leather, cedar, spice and grass and has a wonderful smooth mild body to it. The cigar is smooth but still captures a nice spice to it. The burn is perfect for a cigar of this size and it is incredibly complex. As I enter the second half of the cigar notes of hay become prominent and there is a diminish in spice. There are hints of nuts, coffee, lots of grass and a hint of stone fruit. The cigar burned very well and was not hot at all down to the nub.
This was a beautiful petit corona and I would have to give this cigar a 92 rating. This is going to be my new smoke for when I don't have more then an hour to smoke. There are tons of great Cuban petit coronas but this one really intrigued me more than others. A lot of the time with petit coronas it takes a good amount of age before they really get great but I think these are truly worth it. This cigar really captures lots of flavors in such a compact size. It has a nice body to it and would be enjoyed by all. Imagine a Smart Car with a V8...actually don't. Really a great cigar for your money and a great cigar to have in your humidor.
