Who loves Monte 4 and Por Larranaga Petit Corona with 5 years age on them? Well, that was our benchmark when we set out to blend this Desnudo/Nudes Petit Corona. Mind you I have a love for the Padron Principe 1964, and I would have been happy to get anywhere near that.
How close did we get?
The opening is just over medium bodied. You will swear it’s a maduro in flavour but it’s not. Coffee, chocolate dominate. It has been described as the “brown edge of cookies”. A picture paints a thousand words.
Second third continues along that choc cookie line but introduces some fresh baked bread. This is a petit corona so we wanted it to do a profile well without getting too complicated. There are no harsh spots in this cigar at any point. The last third builds to a chocolate croissant profile. Beautiful medium to medium full finish.
$7.96 a stick. This will be a regular in your humidor.
