So here we have for review for a la corona petit caronas from 1991. these were a machine made cigar that were restarted around 1989 for the eastern bloc countries, they were distributed to Hungary and Bulgaria etc. they are not the prettiest of cigar i must say, a very lumpy wrapper with a lot of discolouration ..but the smell of the cigars in the box is of a dried fruit reminiscent to dried raisins . DRY DRAW - perfect draw just a slight 'tug' and a faint aroma of the dried fruit ..interesting. FIRST THIRD - straight off -sweet honey in the smoke and on the wrapper, slight white pepper through the nose that has long finish with lots of dense smoke. nice even burn line nothing else to talk of really. SECOND THIRD - the sweetness is still there that has turned from a honey to a burnt caramel flavour. the pepper is still there through the nose and across my tongue ..very long finish with the pepper. i cant taste the fruit aspect that was coming from box..perhaps that is the sweetness i am tasting. but in all honesty...not much change! FINAL THIRD - the caramel is still there along with the pepper...still the finish is long with the pepper up to 60 seconds before it disperses ..shed loads of smoke jeez i havent had such a smoked filled room in ages!..unreal..tbh i havent had one of these in a long time so its hard to remember if the box is consistent . CONCLUSION - not much change throughout..consistant with its flavours ...got earthy at its death..so i stopped at the band. - 90 points
Hi all this is my first review on here so here goes ! now first off .. i am not big on flavours..i usually can not drag out multiple flavours in a cigar..either my tastebuds are knackered from drinking to much meths as a kid ..or my brain just isnt good enough...but all i know is i either like the cigar..or i don't ! so anyhow here we have a classic aged punch i have had sitting around for many years..which i love dearly....so lets see how it is today! COLD DRAW - it tastes like the smell of the cigars in the box..a wonderful woodsy / fungal mushroom flavour......wonderful perfect draw..great start. CONSTRUCTION - not a great wrapper..very lumpy...but no soft spots...very firm...i store them at 65% FIRST THIRD - well to start this a very light cigar so far,...a light hint of caramel....a touch of white pepper through the nose...and a very light oatmeal/ biscuit in the background. as i approach the 2nd third the white pepper has ramped up a touch mainly through the nose...hardly any sweet notes to talk of..the burn line has been great i must add. 2ND THIRD - aaahh ...the honey is back..the white pepper is still here ...this is a medium bodied cigar at best so far...the oatmeal flavour is still here ...the honey/caramel flavour is coming from the wrapper..its coating my lips with now a little salt....now becoming very leather/woodsy as i approach the final third. FINAL THIRD - the caramel/honey is still here but on the wrapper, i am disappointed not to have tasted more biscuit/shortcake/oatmeal which seems to of disappeared sadly for me. it is still very woody with white pepper across my tongue,... it is getting stronger now ..there is a strong dark espresso coming through...oh hang on!...the caramel is now here and coating my mouth..wonderful !! this is unexpected which is working very well with the bitter espresso element in the cigar. ...its now full bodied and coming to its end. conclusion- i enjoyed the smoke although it wasnt the best example from the box i have had.. a nice journey though on a sunday morning...and still plenty of life in the cigars yet. 93 points.
