The Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas is a spectacular medium-full Petit Corona, 4.3” (110mm) long, of 42 ring gauge, and comes in a 25 cigars box. This cigar deserves more consideration, despite the fact that its big brother, the Specially Selected, gets all the attention. It is also suffering from the harsh competition from other Habanos like Partagas Petit Corona, Montecristo No.4, Bolivar Petit Coronas, Cohiba Siglo II, San Cristobal De La Habana El Principe, and Por Larranaga Petit Coronas which are all outstanding smokes. Give the Small Club Coronas a chance. You will be quite pleased.
Similar to the Gigantes in its flavor profile.
• Aging does this cigar well. Buy a few boxes.
• Don’t overlook this cigar.
Ring Gauge: 42
The cigar is surprising well made. The wrapper is a nice dark brown and the cap is well applied.
Before lighting up:
The pre-light draw is nice and easy.
A minimally wavy burn and an easy draw.
Surprisingly there are a lot of flavors for a small cigar format. Aromas of wood, nuts, coffee and a touch of spice. It is a rather full-strength cigar. There is a nice even burn, and the ash holds well before a chunk falls off.
The aromas stay in the same range in the second third. The coffee aromas are getting stronger, going from a light roasted coffee to a full dark roasted espresso. Still the wood, nut and spicy notes.
The aromas are long lasting on the palate.
In summary, a stellar Petit Corona.
Smoking time: 30 – 45 Minutes
