Some call it a short panatela but we tend to think of it as the most versatile size next to the robusto. You get a lot of the wrapper taste from a smaller ring gauge as well as a slower progression than a petite corona would give you. You experience more subtle changes in the taste development and can adjust to them easier than with a shorter cigar. For decades people used to think of the corona as the ideal size for a cigar. Times and tastes have changed but the fact remains that this is a very nice cigar for tasting a blend. You take away unnecessary fillers and are only left with the basic composition of tobacco leaves which you taste much more intensely individually than you would in a thicker cigar.
“hell” in German translates to “bright and light colored” which points to the very bright Connecticut wrapper of the series.
