This Petit Corona comes packed in a cedar box that leaves a gentle woody aroma to partner with the stick’s spice, cream, and milk flavors. Once the tissue tube is removed, this cigar displays a rustic Colorado Claro wrapper with minimal veins. The cold draw has a mild barnyard taste with a twist of cocoa and cracked black pepper.
The first few puffs are quite sweet and spicy with a firm draw, but the cigar opens up with each inhale to more robust and earthy flavors. Around the middle third, the light gray ash still holds firm despite the draw loosening up. The spicy notes make their presence felt among the lush flavors of black coffee, dark chocolate, and soil, yet the cigar remains mild and well-balanced.
Into the final third, and the mouth-watering flavors of tobacco, vanilla, and cream will keep you smoking until the nub. The burn remains quite sharp until the end, never getting too hot.
The Delicia is a very mellow smoke with an emphasis on taste. It would be a great morning cigar to complement a cup of espresso or as an introductory smoke for a novice just learning the joys of fine Cuban tobacco.
