Habano, a Half-Corona No.2, 3’5” (90mm) long, of 44 ring gauge, and comes in a box of 25 cigars.
As other newer cigars, Habanos released this very short vitola (the shortest hand rolled cigar along with the H Upmann Half Corona), that fits perfectly the need for customers to enjoy a Cuban cigar in a short time.
This vitola is totally hand made with long filler, using leaves from Vuelta Abajo, known for producing the best tobacco leaves in the world, in the region of Pinar del Rio.
As expected from Montecristo, the Media Corona is perfectly rolled, a great draw and smokes beautifully.
It is a bit more powerful than other Montecristos, because of its shorter length, so expect a body ranging from a medium to a medium-to-full.
The flavor profile is typical of Montecristo, sweetness, cream, cedar, nuts, floral notes and coffee. It is a beautiful cigar that should be a hit among Cuban cigar aficionados.
