Let me make it clear – the Partagas Coronas Senior does not provide an exceptional flavor. However, it’s still one of the best 1-hour smokes out there, especially for this price. My first choice when it comes to good price/quality ratios.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
Neat and smooth Colorado wrapper, firm touch. Do have a look at the pictures :)

Construction : Rating: ★★★★★
Perfectly rolled and filled; no soft spots at all and the wrapper is really high quality. The draw and the burn were flawless all the long.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★½
The pre-draw brought woody and vegetal notes. When I lit it up, I was greeted by very well-balanced cedar and wet rind flavors, which were truly dynamic and pleasant. In the second third, amazing scents of roasted coffee were added to the bouquet; this results in the flavor being very powerful and entertaining. Flavors were less marked out in the last third, yet the Partagas Coronas Senior never got acid or aggressive. I enjoyed it until the very end.

  1. Agree about price/quality. Never had any problems with these, you can count on Coronas Senior.

  2. I enjoyed this cigar; especially agree that this is a great value. I liked the 1st third of this and was OK with 2nd third, but wasnt crazy for the finish. Regardless, a nice lttle cigar, and will definitely smoke this one again.

  3. I am new to the cigar world and have tried 5 cigars so far. Trying for a one a week treat but getting hard to not want to try more. I bought one of these cigars to test for possible gifts (expecting my first boy in late Feb). Have read and tried to educate myself but do try to keep clear of too many reviews or opinions until I try it for myself. That being said I liked this choice very much. Nice and firm to the touch (even wife said it was a pleasant smell). Had a few anxious moments with uneven burn but it corrected itself quickly. Had a nice change from 1st to 2nd third (really liked the second). It finish was different still andvery nice too. Leaving me with a nice lingering taste. Took me a full hour to smoke and in our Canadian late January winter I damn near froze outside…but it was gladly worth it for sure. Anyone with any other suggestions out there please pass them along.

  4. I’ve been reading up on this particular vitola. Given the prices I’m seeing, I can’t help wondering if this is a short-filler cigar.

    Does anyone know?

  5. Bob, I’m fairly sure it’s a long-filler. It’s been a long time since I smoked one though, thanks for reminding me!

  6. I think I’ll be trying a box of these fairly soon. I’ll report results.

    Thanks, Denis, for your prompt response! This is one of my favorite sites!

    Dear Denis is this the same cigar as the petit corona especial which is also 132 by 44? Kind regards, Harry.

  8. @Hdownunder
    These are two different cigars.

  9. One of the cigars I always keep in my humidors but I take them out of the tubes.I agree with Denis that everyone will like this Corona senior.IMO it is a classic Cuban and I’m happy with it everytime I smoke one and I smoke them frequently.As for value , simply top marks here.

  10. What ring is it?? Some webb sites info says 42, some 44.

  11. @Rocket
    The correct ring gauge seems to be 42, I’ll correct the review. Thanks for the heads up.

    I like this smoke. Makes for a pleasant evening with a shot of bourbon. I used to like the stronger cigars but i just can’t do them anymore, this one fits me well. I sometimes wish they lasted a bit longer.
