Cohiba Medio Siglo, Cuban Cigar Information
Launched at the Hunters & Frankau Summer Party in June 2015, the Media Corona translates as "Half Corona", measuring in at 90mm in length and a 44 ring gauge.
The Media Corona follows the recent trend of short cigars, namely the H. Upmann Half Corona, which it shares it's vitola with.
Released in the Autumn of 2011, the H. Upmann Half Corona is a short thirty minute Cigar. There's no real consensus at the moment regarding how well the Cigar is smoking and how well they will age, but early impressions amongst aficionado's is that the Cigar has been hit and miss.
The Partagás Serie D No. 6 is the newest addition to the recent trend from Habanos of introducing small, stubby Cigars. Hopefully the Serie D No. 6 will build on the success of the H. Upmann Half Corona. Released in 2011, the H. Upmann Half Corona proved a hit with aficionados as it delivered in flavour regardless of it's size.
