Herman Upmann was a banker from Germany who so loved Cuban cigars that he moved to Havana in 1844 and set up as both banker and cigar maker. His bank closed in the early 1920's but his cigars live on as a fine example of an elegant,light to medium flavoured Habano. 

H. Upmann's blend is composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone. 

Gold medals in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 19th Century can be found on the brand's labelled boxes. 

Tasting Notes

A small cigar, but with impressive, spicy flavours. An ideal candidate for a smoke-on-the-go thanks to the tube.


88 / 100

"...A gritty-looking corona with a notably uneven burn. Notes of wood and vanilla carry traces of earth and nuttiness, but the burn affected the score..."

Last of the three tube sampler pack, fortunately this was better than the previous two (minor and J). Lit and drew much better, mild smoke although it took a little effort to keep it going. Frankly a disappointing sampler pack and compared to say the rainy day samplers there was little comparision

I picked up one of these babies at Frankfurt train station on a recent trip to Germany and, having never tried an H. Upmann before, I was pleasantly surprised. The construction seemed almost flawless with a dark, smooth wrapper and an inticing, spicy aroma. It lit easily and held its ash well. The ash dropped off by itself when it was around 3.5cm long. The smoke itself had a lovely smell to it, rich and spicy. I found this to be a very tasty smoke with sweet, fruity earthy notes and a hint of clementine. It lasted me nearly an hour, not including ten minutes I left it and it went out. I’ve read others complaining that these don’t like staying alight but mine only went out when I left it. I really have no complaints with this cigar and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who likes light to medium strength smokes. On my return journey I picked up another three to put in my humidor. Maybe they’ll get even better!

Please ignore my comment of Sunday 21 December, 2014. It was meant for the H. Upmann Coronas "Junior". I haven't tried a "Major" yet, but I'm a lover of the "minor". Sorry for the error. Oooops !

Bought a pack of three to sample. Just tried first cigar. It lit, it burnt, but just didn't draw. Hopeless. Will try another one another day, perhaps it was just a badly made cigar and I was unlucky to get that one. Nothing like the Coronas Minor which, in my opinion, is vastly superior. Perhaps I'm being mean with the rating, but I really was disappointed.

Smelt ok but tasted a little harsh to me. Burnt ok but needed to re-light 4 times. Smoked for 45 mins but wouldn't buy another.
