I’m back with another Cuban cigar review – this time it’s a Très Petit Corona by CohibaSiglo #1. I found myself turning to this smoke during those cold months, when it’s hard to fully enjoy an Esplendido or a Partagas P2. Surprisingly, it packs a lot of flavors in such a small vitola.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
A triple cap and a wrapper with very thin veins make this stick really attractive.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★☆
As the majority of smaller and thinner vitolas, the Cohiba Siglo 1 has a few imperfections. Expect to get a tight draw on a few cigars from your box. Otherwise, there’s not much to mention – the burn is rather straight.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
Aged and fresh, they pack a lot of aromas. In the beginning, nutmeg and spice immediately notify me that it’s going to be quite a powerful and complex smoke. Then, delicious woody and floral notes make their way in, the second third is particularly delicious. It’s very smooth and creamy. If your cigar is not aged well enough, the finish might get harsh. Otherwise, if it’s at least 1 year old, the finish is also enjoyable – you’ll get strong flavors of cinnamon and black pepper.

Value : Rating: ★★½☆☆
It’s not a very good deal but it’s only due to Cohiba’s reputation. They probably have to price their cigars this way… It’s obvious that you can get cigars from the same league for lower prices.

Overall Rating : Rating: ★★★★☆
Cohiba Siglo I is a strong player in the très petit coronas league. Although one might prefer Monteristo No. 5 because it’s better priced, this smoke is still an interesting option.
