Lovely H. Upmann Coronas Minor

This particular H. Upmann Coronas Minor was rolled July ‘08 and whatever they were doing that month, I wish they could do it all of the time.  I bought these at the duty free in the Jose Marti airport just out of Havana on our way home to Vancouver.. They were really affordable, easy to carry on board and when I got home, after tasting the first one, I shed many tears for not buying more of them..

The factory name for this cigar, ring gauge 40 and 4.6 inches long, is a coronitas.  I am also a fan of the junior and have smoked many of them but I thought I’d try the Coronas minor and I’m very glad I did.  This cigar tends to be a bit smoother than the junior but thats not to say that this doesn’t have the spice that is very present in the junior.  Some would argue and say that the junior is one that many prefer but then you’d be talking apples and oranges here..

The Coronas Minor , in this case a Tubos, you get slight hints of honey and a beautiful toasted tobacco flavor.  The 45 minutes to one hour it takes to smoke this little cigar gives you a great medium strength smoke that has the most beautiful room aroma.. This is REAL Havana.. It is quick and convenient, the tube is a big plus for going out at night and, once again, the price will keep you coming back!!
