Dspite somewhat rustic appearance and bumpy wrapper with some green spots on the band (probably due to the glue) this is a gem!
Wonderfull aroma with some sweet caramel taste and good even burn resulting in salt and pepper ash.
And I cannot forget CL delivery - received seven days after ordering!
My favorite PC!

      I smoke this one in rotation with BOLI PC; while it has a better construction and fuller flavor, the PL PC with its creamy somewhat sweet taste and some unique spiciness justifies its place in my rotation.
      Great value!

        I love to cook. And this cigar compliments a great meal and dessert. Last week I cooked a meal of filet mignon, small red potatoes cooked in olive oil, and Carrot Cake for dessert. After the meal I smoked one of these fine cigars. This cigar has great sweet flavors that include nutmeg and honey that complimented the dessert I was eating. Purchased two boxes for long term aging. A real classic. A+

          I orederd a cab of 50 on 12-26-09 and was affraid that due to the holiday season the shipping would take some extra time - but NO - it arrived about ten days later.
          But back to PL PC. Upon arrival I opened the cab and was instantly greeted by wonderful aroma of cuban tobacco. But I resisted to smoke one at that time as to provide some recovery from shipping.
          After about a month in my humidor I finaly retrieved one and cut it with a bullet cutter. The initial inspection revealed nice dark wrapper without any major veins, nicely applied cap and good bunching at the foot. Upon lighting I was greeted by somewhat sweet caramel taste which lasted for first 2/3, kind of light-medium body with a perfect draw and firm silvery ash which lasted about 1and1/2 inch. The last third picked some intensity, but never there was any harshness and/or aftertaste.
          My only misgiving about this vitola is that I wished to experience same taste in a larger size. Just image this cigar in either robusto or corona gorda size - this would be an ultimate perfection!
          Thanks to CL for this wonderful experience!

            Great pc to smoke anytime of day. Nice solid triple cap. Great burn with firm gray ash. The aroma is sweet like the taste. Carmel and coffee are the taste that comes through. I got another box of these that had only 15 months of age that are still very smooth smoking. These can't be beat for the price.

              These have a nice balance of caramel and spice. I really like the PL blend in this size. It's the one in the marca I feel is not to be missed. Construction is good and I hear they are best out of a cab. Mine was medium to full bodied. Got to be a bit much during the last
              1/2 but otherwise I think I'd look to age a cab of these in the near future.

                A deep and floral smoke, excellent construction and good draw. A very elegant cigar, you won't be dissapointed.

                  Construction a little rough. The bands started changing color (patches of green). Had me worried it was mold, but it was just a reaction in the ink on the band. Flavor was okay.

                    This new cab from 2007 is oily, dark, and bumpy. They have perfect construction, and always have good draw. These were sort of rough, but still had hazelnuts, crushed herbs, and sweet hay interlaced with caramel and salt. It had a harsh finish. This cab needs a few years to become excellence!

                      These came from a cab from 2003. They were fragile and thin looking, and were slightly dry. However, the draw was good and it produced a great layer of smoke. It loaded the palate with caramel, sugar, salt, and a nuttiness. It also showed some cedar notes. Very complex, smooth, and elegant.

                        I thought these weren't as good as before when I started gorging myself on this box. Maybe it was the Swiss selection? I have been getting the PL PetCor's from Australia which were great right out of the box. Another purchase from a year or two from another Swiss vendor they became a favorite, hence a staple. I thought I would keep them around at all times for their quality X value. When I got my purchase from Cuban Lou's I thought they were not as good as usual. True I could be getting very, very spoiled, but then after putting only a few months on them I became enlightened to a newness in the cigar. The quality at CL's is mystical. Things can be deceiving. These cigars already dispelled( maybe emitted or blew-off) what I felt was a greeness or coarseness in their early flavor. Maybe they had to breathe a bit or just mature? They became incredible- incredibly creamy, and what I like to call a creamy custardy lemon merangue. They are woody and very creamy delights that got great in only two months. It sounds weird. I examined the appearance also and the wrappers are dark and oily, with glandular hairs, including lovely glistening resin ducts. LOL, I have a degree in botany, and may be a little imaginative. These things are getting fancy!!!

                          It is unfortunate that this is last cigar that is handrolled by Por Larranga, Cuba's oldest cigar company on a regular basis. The other two regular sizes still in production are machine rolled and for this reason interest me not at all.

                          I was able to get my hands on half a dozen speciallly made Robusto's hand rolled by Por Larraganos that were destined for the Far East Market and these were by far and away the best product from this producer I have ever tasted. However with that said, back to our Little Petite Coronas.

                          These are a nice mild Petite Corona's, good for those not so experienced smokers and those experienced smokers pressed for time.

                          I find these cigars fresh out of the box to be very high in amonia content which definatelly effects their smokeabilirty. If thse cigars have a box date of less than 2 years, WAIT THE FULL TWO YEARS BEFORE SMOKING. Ammonia is poison and will not only give your cigars an inferior taste.

                          After 2 years these babies have a light fllavourable taste. The cigar burns nicelly wiith no hot spots.

                          I only wish this manufactuer would get out of the machined rolled business and start to produce larger sizes and more variety.

                            I've enjoyed several cabs of this little cutie and look forward to many more. The magic of this cigar for me is its DEPENDABILITY. Draw is always easy, never hot, plenty of rich smoke. Construction is beautiful, uniformly firm, very even burn with a crisp long ash. Flavor is always medium body clean tobacco, slightly toasty and woodsy, hints of sweetness. At it's price, this 45-minute stick has become a regular for me. I've read that this cigar ages beautifully for decades, but I'm afraid I can't hold on to one that long. Mine are always gone by one or two years old and they're great already.

                              This is a nice looking cigar, but the draw was a little too tight at first. It got much better after 1.5". The wrapper is a nice even medium tan color, with some veins. The construction was excellent, with a firm sponginess. Examining the foot showed a very well mixed blend of lighter fill and darker ligero leaves. The prelight flavors include aged tobaco, mild leather and fruit. The initial taste after lighting was toasty, mild leather and mild, white pepper. Towards the middle the white pepper moved to a more heavy black pepper taste and a medium-full strength. The smoke had a light, woody smell. The ash dropped off at 1.5", and had a light grey exterior color with a salt and pepper interior color that mirrored the blend. Overall, a good cigar for the price. I do recommend, as others have, letting these age. As the box code shows, the one I smoked was a little over a year old, and I will probably save some of these for over three years.

                                  What a great sleeper cigar. Smokes more like a 50 ring guage. Needs a couple of 6 months in the humidor. but This is Overall a outstanding cigar. Thanks to Kevin for reccomending it to me. It's a little powerhouse of a smoke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John L.

                                    First off ... I am a harsh critic ;) always leaving enough room in my rating to be blown away by THAT cigar.

                                    Por'Larranaga had never grabbed me ... not until I tried the Petit Corona ... so much flavour for such a small smoke :P my coffee breaks have not been the same since.

                                    Awesome dark rich colour ... with a flovour to match ;)
                                    All I wish from Por'Larranaga now is a 52guage pyramid :P and a SuperRobusto with the same blend ;)

                                    If you have never tried one ... well ... highly recommended ;)
                                    If you have ;) well ... you know what everyone is on about now ;)

                                        Wow is all I could say upon lighting this babe up, for such a young cigar it sure packs alot of flavors upon lighting you get hit with this rush of caramel vanilla and spice all the way up to about the band when it gets alittle harsh. This will improve with time in the humi and boy I have 48 to wait and they will be great.
