July 6, 2012 — After the presentation of the H.Upmann Half Corona in 25 units Labelled Box in 2011 which was of great acceptance among Habanos* smokers, the new Half Corona presentation in metal case of 5 units will be available around the world soon.


Herman Upmann was a German banker whose passion for the Habanos*took him to establish himself in Havana in 1840. He founded a bank and a Factory of Habanos in 1844. The bank closed, but his cigar brand persists in our days, and it is considered a reference within the most refined Habanos* with its light to medium flavor.

The blend of the brand is made with leaves from the zone of Vuelta Abajo* in Pinar del Rio*, Cuba*. All H.Upmann Habanos* are made Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Larga -Totally  by hand with long filler”. The excellent quality and long history flaunted by the brand is shown in the gold medals that adorn the box, obtained in no less than eleven international fairs during the 19th century and which constitute a characteristic element of this brand. Those medals can be seen in the front part of this tiny Half Corona metal case.

In the following weeks the H.Upmann Half Corona (44 ring gauge x 90mm in length) in metal case of 5 will start to be available in the best shops worldwide. Half Corona offers the possibility to enjoy a Habano in any circumstance, with a format than can be smoked in less than 20 minutes.



Through this attractive presentation, H. Upmann recovers the historical tradition of Habanos to produce metal cases. This Half Corona case can easily be transported and protects your Half Coronas properly.

H.Upmann Half Corona is an invitation to a short smoke of a pleasant blend and it is ideal for those who initiate themselves in the extraordinary world of the Habano.
