One of the most sought after cigars of 2011 (and i suspect for at least the first quarter of 2012 if current supplies are any indication) is the H Upmann Half Corona. First announced (and tasted in public) at the 13th Habanos Festival 2011, it was generally well received, in a format that aficionados are increasingly gravitating towards: smaller and tastier. 90mm x 44RG, it’s really small, smaller still than Ramon Allones Small Club Corona (RASCC) that weighs in at 110mm x 42RG.
It’s quite a find to be able to snag a box of these, they are quite rare due to issues with supply. They have only surfaced with any real quantities in Europe, and the UK market in particular. Can’t wait to do a review of these!
