Review Notes: A very tasty cigar! This petit corona with box code KMM 11/04 sported a creamy tawny wrapper with minimal veins. Solid construction without soft spots. Easy light. Slightly tight draw even though stored for months at 63% RH in my Avallo Triple D. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black ash. Started with leather and wood. The first third brought a medley of leather, nuts, barnyard hay, warm leather, and flora. The most intereting part, however, was the development of a "carmel corn" aftertaste, particularly prominent when I tasted floral notes. I have not experienced this taste before in another cigar, which made it most intriguing. The middle third brought a creaminess, as well as cashews, sweet leather, wood, and the floral-to-carmel corn taste decribed above. The last third saw more of the same, with more prominent floral notes and a slight menthol character. All in all, this one hour smoke was delightful, even despite the slightly firm draw. The carmel corn taste was most enjoyable. I'd drybox these for a couple days before trying again to see if the draw improves. Bought a cab.
