Excellent smoke. More than medium - full bodied. Good to the last. Draw has been perfect on all 10 I have smoked.
This cigar was very good I will be picking up a box now that I have tried this great cigar!
I was very impressed with this thing. Pretty to look at. Smoked like Vesuvius. The Riqueza burned nice and even all the way through, and it got better and better as I approached the exit point. I smoked it until it was absurdly small, then finally had to toss it. The flavours hit you right away and become a little more intense as you make your way through it. Again, I can t say I detect sweet spice and leather or any of that, but this is a great smooth cigar, and I ll will certainly keep these on hand. I ll wager this cigar goes great with a dark amber adult beverage.
Nice appearance. Got quick blast of charcoal flavor at start. Mellowed right into nice flavors of leather, sweet spices and every now and then black licorice notes. Nice draw and even burn. a winner!
I love this brand and I normally smoke the belicoso. I decided to give this size a try, to my dissappointment, I could barely get smoke out of this cigar. The flavor is there, i can taste it, but i had to struggle to get to it. Perhaps this is one bad out of 100 good ones. I will give this a try again.
This cigar is a bit of a mystery to me. The flavors and burn are fantastic, but I have had some serious inconsistencies with the burn. I have had three of these, and the first two were fantastic smokes. Excellent balance and finessed flavors. The third had what is perhaps the tightest draw of any cigar I have ever smoked. I definitely recommend that you try one for the flavor, but after my last experience, I would be hard pressed to consider a box purchase. Pete Johnson's other offerings are far superior in this regard.
Uneventful, is the only way to describe this cigar. The No.1 appears to be well-made, but leaves much to be desired in the quality of its tobacco. This smoke is dry and green, with absolutely no flavor to speak of.
I enjoyed this cigar. Great looking, feeling, drawing and tasting. I was a bit surprised with this slow burner. Got in a sampler and had to get more. Not worth the retail price but if you can get on auction or sale price and you like medium body then this is a great go to.
You should note that this information does not relate directly to the No. 4 vitola, rather is made about the petit corona, but I'm going to assume that my comment will be sufficiently generic to be informative. I bought two five-packs of the petit coronas about 8 months ago. I burned through the first five quickly and was not terribly impressed with them. They were good but nothing to write home about. The "fresh out-of-the-box cigars" had a rough edge to them and looked a bit dry. Fortunately, I had the patience to wait this one out. I left the second five-pack in a jar humidor with a Bovida pack, along with a few other (seasoned) cigars, then waited about 8 months before trying them again. They were well worth the wait !!! All of the roughness was gone. Those little box-pressed petit coronas are just the ticket !!! Very heavy on the flavor !!! Pete Johnson and "the Don" did a good job on this one. If you can be patient and give it some time in the humidor, you will not be disappointed. It seasons quite nicely. I suspect that if the were to season for a year or two, they would be sensational.
