20 – 30 Minutes
The Montecristo Media Corona is a medium-full short Habano, a Half-Corona, 3.5” (90mm) long, of 44 ring gauge, and comes in a box of 25 cigars.
The Media Corona offered a cold draw full of nuts and mild wood, once lit we found flavours of nuts, honey, chocolate and almond in surprising transitions given the abbreviated size of this stick, which also creates a more powerful flavour profile landing beyond the medium full mark. We also noted some dashes of spice that weaved in and out, the flavours were so inviting that we had to remind ourselves to smoke slowly.
The depths of flavour and ideal smoking experience will make you feel like this was a much longer smoke than it will be in reality. It would be easy to inhale this one in under 30 minutes but for the full experience try to push it beyond that.
