"((( Lacks Complexity )))"
The Conuco Corona, sports a nice, although somewhat bumpy, chocolate colored wrapper. This corona is medium in strength, well constructed, and has a good draw. The burn of the cigar is ragged, with a loose ash. This corona stings the nose with hints of wood and earth through out the burn, and leaves a bitter after taste in the mouth. The cigar may benefit from more time in the humidor. Burn time for this cigar is approximately 50 minuets.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this cigar 4

"One of the very best "house brands" Famous offers"
Conuco Petite Corona
These babies are good - first, last and always. I can honestly compare them to any Rocky Patel product - they always measure up. When Famous introduced (re-introduced??) these I was pleased to see such a truly good smoke available at a very good price. The prices have risen since - and like a lot of Famous' line, it seems they have risen much more than SCHIP caused - but they are still a very good cigar at a fairly decent price. I don't smoke as many as I did, because of the price, but I still like to grab one of the ones from the depths of my humi, and fire it up.

"Good flavor, but flawed construction."
Actually a very nice cigar as far as flavor goes. I've smoked 3/4 of the box so far and several cigars have had a very uneven burn. I'll wait before reordering.

Conuco Test Flight
Nice smoke for the money. I am planning on buying more. Relatively medium body, nice slow smoke.

Bought these with a free 5 cigar Rocky Patel sampler. these cigars burn really good and have a full flavor. I like the Rocky Patels, but I'm buying more Conuco's.

"DEFINITELY "FULL FLAVOR""
If FULL FLAVOR is what you want, then this could be your smoke. I found it to have a great appearance and pre-light smell, nice and firm throughout. Burn was excellent and NEVER strayed. I thought I was going to have to PUNCH the ash off, it was so strong. Great construction. The draw was excellent (I use a punch) and the smoke was full. This was for sure, a STRONG earthy cigar that got a "little" creamy toward the halfway point and stayed that way to the end. Very Good FULL body cigar!

"I loved it."
Got it in a sample pack, put it the humidor for a week and smoked it on the porch last night. I loved it. Burned great, tasted great. I usually smoke the Perdomo lot 23's, a hand full of these will be finding their way into my humidor shortly.
