Rating by Surrey Cigars - 94/100 

This is the shortest cigar in the current Havana portfolio, But the Half Corona shouldn't be overlooked, as it is in my opinion comfortably the best cigar within it's timeframe, and a modern day classic. More leather and earth to be found within it's profile, and the slightest coffee element, this cigar burns and draws wonderfully, tempered perfectly by it's slightly thicker ring gauge at 44 inches. A great cigar to walk with, or with a coffee too.

Mr Herman Upmann was a banker from Germany who so loved Cuban cigars that he moved to Havana in 1844 to set up as a banker and then later as a cigar maker. His bank closed in the early 1920's but his cigars live on as a fine example of an elegant, light to medium flavoured Habanos Cigar.

H. Upmann's blend is composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone in Cuba.

Gold medals in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 19th Century can be found on the brand's labelled boxes.
