Montecristo Media Corona - A Short Delight:
The Media Corona, meaning "Half Corona," was reintroduced by H. Upmann, paying homage to its popularity in the early 20th century. With a modern 44-ring gauge, this format revives the tradition of a shorter, long-filler handmade Cuban cigar. The Montecristo Media Corona is the shortest long-filler handmade Cuban cigar available, delivering a concentrated burst of flavour in a compact package.
The Distinctive Taste of Montecristo:
Montecristo is renowned for its distinctive and sought-after taste. Described as tangy, this cigar captivates the palate with a complex blend of flavours. Experience notes of coffee and cocoa beans, a touch of pepper, and hints of orange peel, cinnamon, and vanilla. This bitter-sweet and spicy combination creates an irresistible taste, making Montecristo the world's most sought-after premium cigar. The perfect balance of the tobacco blend further enhances the smoking experience.
Reviving a Heritage of Taste:
The Montecristo Media Corona is a testament to the brand's rich heritage and commitment to quality. It was initially introduced in the UK in 1907 by an English cigar importer who wanted to stop keeping his wife waiting for him at the theatre while he enjoyed the last of his Corona-sized cigar.
Enjoying immense popularity for years, this size eventually faded from the market. The Montecristo Media Corona reemerged with a modern twist thanks to H. Upmann's dedication to reviving forgotten formats. It offers cigar enthusiasts the opportunity to savour a piece of cigar history while enjoying the exceptional quality of Montecristo.
