A new pocket rocket

Ha­banos an­nounces the 90-mil­lime­tre Mon­te­cristo Me­dia Corona.

Virtuozity - - CIGAR NEWS -

Ha­banos over the sum­mer an­nounced the launch of the Mon­te­cristo Me­dia Corona, a new vi­tola size that will be in­cor­po­rated into the reg­u­lar port­fo­lio of the brand’s Linea Cla­sica.

With a ring gauge of 44 and a length of 90 mm, Ha­banos said that this new cigar would be suit­able for shorter smok­ing times. The Cuban to­bacco gi­ant also claimed that the new cigar would pro­vide all of the tra­di­tional flavours of a Mon­te­cristo, with a tra­di­tional medium to full-bod­ied flavour.

Ac­cord­ing to Ha­banos’ tast­ing notes, the vi­tola of­fers an in­tense flavour, with woody, dry and sweet touches, pro­vid­ing the smoker with an unc­tu­ous sen­sa­tion in the mouth. The com­pany said that the Me­dia Corona is char­ac­terised by the tra­di­tional flavour of Mon­te­cristo’s Linea Cla­sica line, though it added that the ex­cel­lent draw would be more pow­er­ful be­cause of the cigar’s short length.

With a nat­u­ral brown wrap­per that comes with a touch of red, the cigar in­cor­po­rates the new Mon­te­cristo band, which has gold-em­bossed cen­tre. The UK mar­ket was first to re­ceive the new vi­tola, but Ha­banos says that the new stick is now avail­able across the world. It comes in stan­dard boxes of 25 cigars.
