El Rey del Mundo Petit Corona

January 28, 2013

The Cigar: The Petit Corona by El Rey del Mundo is the best kept secret of the Habanos catalog: El Rey del Mundo is a niche brand, this definition implies small production so that we get better manufacture and blend consistency. The Petit Corona – 129 x 42 – is a very popular format – just think of the Montecristo No.4 – every Cuban brand has it, but no one beats El Rey del Mundo.

The Smoke: The maduro wrapper is tight, draw and burning will require no effort on your side. This is an earthy and woody cigar mainly, with touches of coffee, it’s a limited aromatic palette but the Petit Corona delivers it with such vigor and strength you will soon forget its limitations, a lot of character here, this is a macho cigar.

The Score:  91
