Habanos for winter: short and easy tastings

In the coming months, there will not be so many opportunities that cigar fans will have to taste our favorite vitolas, so this time we have selected a quintet of vitolas with short and easy puffs. In the Habanos vitolario we have numerous references to attend to in this regard, because compared to larger formats, some Cuban cigars offer us all kinds of advantages when it comes to enjoying in a short space.

or time of different ties, strengths and flavors. And so in the search for these cigars from the most prestigious Habanos brands such as Cohiba, we could find Century II, from which we will obtain softness in its beginnings in which flavors and aromas are on par and throughout the smoke. We will perceive some very light spicy touches and some spicy traces, with a strength of three out of five. Another of the quintet’s cigars is the Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robustos, whose smoke begins sweetish, with some hints of white pepper and certain woody notes, a great balance of flavors and aromas, with a medium-down strength character (one on five) and that shows us that you can enjoy a Cuban cigar without the need for aggressive perceptions in the mouth. The third of our selection is the Montecristo Media Corona that with just over six grams shows a good concentration of tobacco traces and with earthy notes that melt with spicy tips as combustion progresses, all with a strength of four out of five. Partagas Serie D Nº 5 is another of those chosen for these winter times that despite its small size and with good weight (8.7 grams) shows from the beginning its character, flavor and spicy tips and very good density of its smoke in the mouth , honoring the league of his older brothers of the brand itself. Finally we have chosen one of the new arrivals to the cigar cellars such as Trinidad Media Luna, which is a smooth and creamy cigar with certain woody touches in whose tasting we perceive coffee and cocoa, along with some spicy traces, with a strength of average rate of three out of five.
