What's your favorite recent petit corona?


Recommended Posts

I have been smoking A bunch of petit coronas recently and wanted some of you guys to chime in on what is currently your favorite from recent production (07, 08, maybe even 09). What do you guys like?

Great Dip 4's and Punch Petit Corona's are hard to beat from this period. Good value for money and intense marque flavours.

There really isn't a bad petit corona. Still, variation box to box is a hazard so always insist your vendor select the box/make recommendations from the stock at hand.

I like the Trinidad Reyes.

Samb, the Trinidad Reyes is a Reyes, basically a Half Corona, which means that it is no where near a Petit Corona.

Recent Petit Coronas that I have enjoyed from the 07/08 period have been:

Diplimaticos No.4

Por Larranaga Petit Corona

Bolivar Petit Corona

The Montecristo No.4's have been hit or miss for me from this period thus far.

I have always got no less than 4 PC choices in open boxes but I cut in a lot of sub-PC's as well. Currently PLPC (different years), SLR PC, Upmann PC's, Punch RS12 and Monte 4's. PLPC's are still my faves.

Then in that case, from my limited experience in the subject matter, I like the Monte 4s.

Amen to the Punch RS 12, by far the most consistent and flat out delicious in my opinion.

I love Bolivar PCs but they are unbelievably inconsistent and after enough cabs that are 'off', it can wear you out. Great when they are right, however. But lots of age required.

PLPCs are amazing when they're 'on' but they need serious aging to get their full potential. Okay when young---If you can wait, however, they'll really surprise you pleasantly.

I really miss the Partagas PC in 50 cabs. It is the only discontinued one in this size that I believe deserved to survive.

PLPC...hands down my favorite from this time period. Best with at least a year of age.

07 & 08 Dip #4s have been very nice, but MAR 09 Boli PCs are the best I've had recently. Can't comment on PLPC or PC del Punch as I am smoking 05s & 02s respectively. Those are very good too. Also liking 98 SLR PCs.

MC # 4s and PLPCs. While one 08 box of the MC #4s was a dissapointment this year I have three others that are stellar. The PLPCs speak for themselves when you try one that is on and they have been on!
