Montecristo Media Corona 5’s are half-size corona sold in packs of 5 (although they are often available as single cigars or in boxes of 25). Media Corona means ‘Half Corona’ and was designed to accommodate an English importer of cigars in 1907 who wanted a smaller sized cigar that would stop him from keeping his wife waiting at the theatre! The Half Corona, from Montecristo, became a popular size of cigar during the early to mid-twentieth century, but it fell out of favour as bigger sizes were appreciated once more.
In 2011 companies began selling Montecristo Media Corona 5’s cigars which had a more modern ring gauge of 44. The perfectly balanced flavour of Montecristo cigars shines through in this small cigar, the premium tangy and slightly citrusy notes come through an aroma of coffee, vanilla and cream.
Many people enjoy buying the Montecristo Media Corona 5’s cigars due to their decreased length and smoking time. This allows people to enjoy a cigar in short periods of time, such as on a lunch break or even during a theatre interval!
