Upmann Half Corona 2011

It's hard to divide this really short cigar into thirds... even though the smoking time was about 70 minutes (I would say the average is about 60 minutes). Due to this I'll make just an overall description of this really amazing smoke.

My first surprise was when I saw this cigar the first time. I knew before that it's small but when you see it, it's even smaller. The second surprise came after firing it up. Wow... full of flavors. Wood, walnut, some spices and decent fruitiness added by strong tobacco aromas. That's a really good Upmann.

The third surprise was the smoking time. When I fired it up I thought about a 20 minutes smoke... but all the ones I had until today lasted for 50 to 70 minutes... which's really amazing.

A great little cigar with a very good value for the price. Thumbs up!
