Presentation

The H.Upmann Coronas Major Tubos comes in a dress box of 25 cigars in aluminum tubes with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-C/S-9,9,7-A/T-25

Dimensions:

Length: 132 mm (5.2 inches)

Diameter: 16.67mm

Ring gauge: 42

Shape: Eminentes

Appearance:

The cigar comes in a beautiful aluminum tube of yellow/cream color. Once the tube opened, it reveals a nice and well rolled cigar. The wrapper has a light brown color (claro tone), a few apparent veins and some tiny bumps here and there, but overall, it is good. It feels packed evenly from the cap to the foot. The cap is very well applied.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

At cold, the cigar smells of strong barnyard and of sweet tobacco. The cap cuts easily and then reveals a good draw, which is perhaps just slightly firm. The cold draw gives some wood and chocolaty flavors.

Burn/ Draw

The H Upmann Coronas Major lights easily and the first flavors to reach the palate are of cedar, leather and coffee. The burn line is perfect throughout the whole smoke. The ash builds up at the foot and holds on for almost 2 inches. Right away the cigar releases generous billows of thick and creamy white smoke.

Initial third:

The first third of the cigar starts of very mildly with some smooth flavors of cedar, black coffee and leather. There is also a strong note of tobacco, but not overpowering the rest of the flavors. It is all tied-up nicely thanks to some delightful hints of spices. The finish is long and beautiful. There are also some notes of vanilla and of sweetness (honey). Strength wise, it is at a mild-to-medium smoke at this point.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the cigar is still very creamy, offering ample cedar, still plenty of coffee and leather. The spice has receded to the background, it is a very enjoyable third, complex and creamy. The body of the cigar remains in the mild-to-medium range, slowly increasing in power since the first third.

Final third:

In the final third, the flavor profile changes significantly, even if the cedar is still predominant, the coffee and the leather have completely disappeared, and leaves place for ample floral characteristics. The honey sweetness is also quite present through the nose. The finish is still very long and chocolaty. It is a incredibly delicious ending to the cigar, all the flavors work beautifully together, and the Coronas Major remains cool until the last inch.

In summary, this is an affordable cigar that presents a beautiful and consistent construction in a long and enjoyable smoke experience.

Smoking time:

1 hour 20 minutes - 1 hour 40 minutes

Do not be in a Hurry ! ! , 5/15/2017
By Douglas
I smoked this cigar fresh out of the box. The unopened bottom of the box had a factory code of SOM, a date code of Oct 15 and the inscription Totalmente a Mano, meaning "totally by hand" or hand-made. Fifteen of the 25 cigars had scattered white powdery bloom/plume spots which is a good thing. This means that the essential oils contained in the tobacco have come to the surface and the cigar is aging well. They were easily brushed off.

The cigar was cut and had a manageable draw but uneven burn for 65 minutes. The strength was medium and slightly harsh in the first third with little flavor. For the remaining two-thirds the strength mellowed slightly with little flavor other than tobacco.

After arrival of an unopened box, Mary recommends 2-3 weeks in a humidor to allow the cigar to stabilize and re-humidify. For cigars that have been in a closed Tubo for 1+ years, this is an excellent suggestion and likely contributed to the uneven burn and harshness of this cigar. Screw off the cap, put them away, and be patient. I intend to write a more fair follow-up review in a few months.

My friend and i have this as our go-to cigar. Great taste and never harsh or bitter, perfect for relaxing over a cardgame.
Good cigar/value , 3/22/2015
By Christopher
Nice construction. The one I tried burned a little uneven but evened out after the 1st third. I did try it a few days after receiving it(I couldn't wait), so I can't blame the cigar, it needs to acclimate a little. Started out spicy and mellowed out to a smooth leathery creamy flavor. It's a nice 30+ min smoke. For the value, can't go wrong. Look forward to the others!

Attractive wrapper with nice bloom on it, good even burn. The ones I've tried recently were ready to smoke now. Reasonably priced and a tubo besides! What's not to like?
