Macanudo petit corona tubo

This small 5 inch ring 38 cigar is made out of Dominican & Mexican filler, Mexican binder and a Connecticut shade wrapper. And boy, that wrapper is ugly, way too many veins. The predraw on this cigar is fine and it has an aroma of hay. It comes in a nice tube.

I taste a sweet wood flavor and it turns into musty leather pretty quick, not very pleasant. After little over an inch I can taste some chocolate and herbs, both still musty. Midway the mustiness disappears and I discover a nutty flavor, but instead of the mustiness I now get a burning sensation on my tongue. At 2/3rd the burning sensation disappears and I get a nice nut flavor, very full.

This small stick produces a lot of smoke and has a fine burn. The ash is firm and white. This cigar is mild bodied medium flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, the fantastic finish doesn’t make up for the bad start, and petit coronas aren’t my favorite size anyway.
