Henri Winterman Tubed Coronas Deluxe - 1's
Date Added: Tuesday 09 September, 2014 A straight-up tobacco flavour throughout, which tends to be fairly sweet to begin with and beefy in the back-half. It's pre-cut so no need for a cutter or punch, and easy to draw. It's machine made, so construction is good, and it gives a good, even burn - and you can get a good minute between draws. Ash tends to cling on for a good inch before the need for tapping. Burn time is approx 45 minutes. Big warning though - if it goes out, the taste gets really strong and bitter upon relighting, almost to an unsmokable extent. Gives a medium to full body, with plenty of smoke output. Aroma can be quite pungent whilst smoking, but has a good after-smell, if you like, afterwards.

Henri Winterman Half Coronas - 5's
Date Added: Monday 08 September, 2014 The review below should say *not* hand-made, but machine made. Couldn't edit after posting.

Henri Winterman Half Coronas - 5's
Date Added: Monday 08 September, 2014 These get a lot of bad write-ups because they are cheap, Dutch and hand-made. I can quite honestly say that, whilst I have tasted better quality cigars, my experience of these has never been bad. I am not a cigar snob by any means, and am not a "reviewer" or "connoisseur" - but I'll write honestly and as I find. For me, these Half Coronas do have something going on. They are not bland or cheap n nasty at all. What I get from them, pretty much every time, is a transition of tastes - starting off from a creamy coffee like taste that leaves a sweet tobacco finish in the first third, through to an almost sherbet-like sweetness in the middle that continues with the sweet finish, before bursting into a meaty final third that leaves a peppery taste on the tongue. Whilst that end may sound unappealing, it is not overpowering by any stretch of the imagination. It is medium-bodied and quite cool initially, but does develop into a slightly stronger finish at the end. Plenty of smoke output throughout too.

H.Upmann Majestic - 1's
Date Added: Thursday 15 December, 2011 A highly enjoyable and very smooth cigar that will happily last 1 hour. A little more tightly packed than the price would suggest - a very pleasant surprise - so an ideal buy for the occasional smoker who appreciates sophisticated but accessible flavours.

Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto - 1's
Date Added: Monday 26 July, 2010 A great petit robusto. As is typical for a petit robusto, there's a rich, full bodied, complex opening, which calms to gentler milder tones as the smoke progresses. Creamy, soft textures, with an incredibly smooth draw. An ideal smoke for early in the day, perhaps with an espresso. The opening will certainly kickstart the day! Typically great Hoyo construction in a darker blonde wrapper. A very fine half hour's smoke,

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.1 - 1's
Date Added: Friday 04 September, 2009 I recently bought the Cuban Selection No.1 and I've found that I keep going back to the Epicure No.1. The burn is incredibly even and the cigar has been consistently smooth right the way through. When I run out of these I will without doubt be purchasing the box of 25 next.
