La Flor de Cano Petit Corona Cigar Review

This 4.75×39 cigar from Cuba features a cedar sleeve, under which is a mottled dark brown wrapper with small and medium veins, tight seams, a nice double cap, even spongy give with lumps and minor imperfections with a rich chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals unfortunately an almost unsmokeably tight draw, with what feels like a solid knot 1/2 way down the stick. Flavors are just a faint tobacco and a tiny amount of smoke. The first third isn’t much different, giving a mild body flavor of a silky smooth creamy textures sweet tobacco with minimal smoke and a short clean finish. 20 minutes in the draw opens up just a touch, doubling smoke output. Flavors go to a medium body of a smooth sweet leather with an oily pepper and spice finish, which is still short and clean. Draw is still very tight. 30 minutes in starting the last third, smoke output is now excellent with tons of rich medium-full body smoke with the same flavors but a lot more oil and cayenne spics through the finish leaving the lips very hot and tingly. Ending at 45 min where it got too hot for my taste there were no further changes. Thank you very much you YouTube viewer Nokomisclub for generously sending this in for review!

    I agree w/you completely regarding colored cigars. Ultimately, they are a huge inconvenience and additionally the consumer truly has no idea what’s really being used to create the visual impression. I’ve decided not to purchase any colored/dyed cigars, as often there is also a flavoring component included in the “wash”. I simply want an authentic experience that is centered around flavor.
