This little guy is a firecracker. If you ever thought small cigars were a waste of time, well look again. With a Maduro wrapper that has been aged for 5 years, hence the name Maduro 5, this cigar is dark and oily. The wrapper isn’t perfect, with some appearance issues, but the draw is great and it is clear the cigar is made very well. I have had the whole line of the Maduro 5, and this is the best vitola in it I would say. The cigar isn’t consistent from one to the next, but when it is on, it is on. Tonight, it was on!
The petit corona is packed with complex flavors of coffee, leather, almonds and caramel. It’s a full-bodied smoke to say the least, and probably one of the most full bodied petit corona’s I have ever had. I was talking with one of my friends Down Under, who is a cigar shop owner, and he says a lot of them are made at the Partagas Factory and it is because of that, that they are made with better quality.
I for one love this smoke, and if I don’t have a lot of time, or want a quick smoke, I grab for it. The only downfall of this cigar is the pricing. I think with it’s pricing you can get some better Habanos, or non-Habanos, but it is still a rare treat. I give this cigar a 91.
