Henri Wintermans is the brand millions of smokers around the world would choose if asked to name the first cigarillo that sprang to their minds. Since the early 1900s the Dutch firm has been blending the finest tobacco leaves from as far as Cuba, Colombia, and Indonesia to create small cigars that offer a quick smoking experience enriched by an abundance of aromas and flavours.
Well constructed, pre-cut, machine-made, Founder's Blend Dutch half corona. Individually wrapped. Sweeter than the Corona de Luxe. Mild, aromatic, nicely balanced, smooth draw, pleasant aroma.
These are my favourite everyday smoke, I found them to be sweet tasting and easy to smoke. They do however get hot if you rush them so allow a good half an hour to smoke these and they go nicely with some rich Italian coffee. I wouldn't recommend them for your first smoke though, my first every cigar was a Romeo y Julieta no 3 which are not too overwhelming for a first time smoke in my opinion.

I have to say, I've been smoking these for about three weeks now, and for machine rolled cigars, I love them. I've found them to be nice and smooth to smoke, and I can usually get a good 30 minutes out of them. They're not on the same level as Cuban cigars, but they're not meant to be. Worth the money.

These little half coronas generally get a bad rep - I decided to ignore that and give them a chance.
Now, my hypothesis regarding their reputation is based upon the price-point being somewhat tailored toward the beginner. Generally, they'll be picked up on a whim as a first foray into cigars; the problem begins! These overheat VERY easily. If you don't respect that, the bitterness is staggering and very off putting. One has to realise that to enjoy these, you must give it time. I have no problems relaxing for a good 35 minutes with one! Take it slow and without the over-heating problems, they're a very tasty little smoke.
Woody, earthy and as has already been mentioned, a nice slight sweetness. If you're looking for complexity, this isn't it. However, for good construction, great burn and a comfortable draw, all combined with a lovely smooth taste and pleasant oily texture - go for it!
Less than £2 a stick.. come on. Get your self a pack (or two) and enjoy a guilt free, cheapo smoke with a few buddies. 5/5 can't fault them for the price.

I am a beginner cigar smoker and my first cigar was H. Uppman (U.H) Cuban cigar which was very pleasant and enjoyable cigar......highly recommended for a beginner smoker. However, when you compare the HW Half coronas with H.U Cigars they are really are not nice. I found it was very harsh on the back of the throat and had to clear my throat a few times the next day. There are not bad but i would suggest for the similar style cigars try the cuban like the Montecristo and Romeo Y Juliet it would be much better tasting but will set you back in similar price.

I have literally just broke my cigar virginity with these , I was looking for a cigar of light to medium and around the same size as these as I ventured into my curiosity with what all the fuss about cigars are, accompanied with a glass off brandy I relaxed and lit up the cigar, I can't really give an opinion on how good or bad these are but I enjoyed every minute and so begins my journey of experiencing the finer things in life
