My view on the Montecristo Media Corona
Box Code - PMS JUN 2015
As of June 2016 I've smoked through half of the cigars of this box and am loving each and every one of them! Such a satisfying thirty to thirty five miunte smoke, full of cocoa like flavours - bean, macchiato, coffee. The blend is perfect - it's somewhere between a Montecristo No. 3 and a Montecristo Petit Edmundo. Milk chocolcate with a dark chocolate blast! Each and every one that I have smoked so far deserves ninety to ninety two points. Astonishing.

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.
