Non Plus Ultra Petit Corona

This is an old review that somehow never got posted when it should have been uploaded.

This Non Plus Ultra cigar was a private label for a Dutch cigar distributer that had a shop with the same name. The name of the shop then changed to Oliva Cigar Lounge, Studio Tobac Cigar Lounge and now is called Van Dalen Cigars Den Bosch and these Non Plus Ultra cigars have been off the market for a long time. They are still sold under the name Gil Gonzalez Davilla for a specific cooperation of Dutch cigar shops.

The cigars were once made by Carlos Torano before he sold that part of the company to Swedish Match, years before he sold the remaining part of his company. The wrapper of the 5×40 petit corona is chocolate brown and looks nice. The ring is very simple. I smell hay and wood. The construction feels good and the cold draw, which tastes like raisin and herbs is good.

I taste a nice coffee flavor, the cigar is quite spicy and after a centimeter I taste soap with soft wood and smooth herbs. After taking a sip of water I taste hazelnuts.

After a third I taste sharp, harsh herbs and burned wood, charcoal like, but luckily that burned sensation disappears quick. Halfway I taste a mild creamy wood with herbs that is replaced by sweet herbs and spices with a sharp edge near the end.

The smoke time is an hour exactly. The draw was fine, but I got little smoke. The ash is white. The cigar is mild to medium bodied and medium flavored. The ash is frayed but firm and the burn is good.
