The Corona Gorda is hand made at the Miami cigar factory by some of the world's most talented Cuban cigar rollers. These Medina 1959 Miami Limited Edition Corona Gordas have that special and elegant taste that only pre-1959 Havana cigars had. That's because they are made under the watchful eye of Manuel Medina, a legend in the history of Cuban cigars. From the dry Cuban-seed tobacco bunching to the precise blending of different tobacco leaves, this cigar boasts quality and elegance. While it's beautiful to look it, it's even better to smoke.
The medium to full-bodied smoke is filled with delightful, rich tastes of cocoa, nuts, mild spices and earthy cream that coats your mouth and keeps you hoping it never ends. They can only be compared to the pre-Castro Cuban cigars that magically grabbed your attention at the start and kept you satisfied until the very end. The Cuban-seed Habano long-filler and binder are aged for 6 years and the super-premium Cuban-seed wrapper is aged for at least 5 years.
This combination of tobacco was blended by Manuel Medina to match the exact taste that he remembers when he first started rolling cigars in Havana, Cuba. Each Corona Gorda cigar is 6 1/2 inches long with a huge ring gauge of 64, a full inch in girth.
1959 was a year of luxurious self-indulgence, romance and the year that Fidel Castro changed the course of history in Cuba. It was also when Medina started rolling cigars. He eventually became one of the most celebrated Master Rollers in Havana. Manuel Medina played a formidable role in Cuba's cigar history. He started as a roller at the H. Upmann factory in Cuba. His talents were quickly recognized and he eventually became the factory's Master Cigar Maker, overseeing hundreds of master cigar rollers. He was then promoted and became the Master Cigar Maker in Cuba's Davidoff factory, overseeing all the rollers in Cuba's best cigar factory.
His talents were showcased throughout Europe, leading him to travel extensively. During one of those trips, he decided to seek freedom instead of the celebrity status he held in Cuba. Medina made Miami, Florida his new home. He is now in charge of making limited edition cigars at the Miami cigar factory. Most of the Master Rollers who make the Medina 1959 Miami Edition cigars worked for him in Havana, Cuba.
Medina 1959 Miami Edition re-creates the pre-Castro Cuban cigars, when Cubans were considered the best in the world. These cigars are unquestionably captivating. Each one is hand made by a decorated Cuban born roller in Miami.
