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

This cigar is creamy with hints of coffee. Small attractive Havana, good draw with complex flavours for such a small cigar. An excellent short smoking break cigar. 

---- 

89 / 100

"...Small and stubby with a lopsided cap, this cigar begins floral and bready before picking up a salty earthiness. The finish leaves a bit of grit on the palate..."

Had the pleasure of this great smoke, with a glass of Tullamore DEW Irish whiskey, Paired fantastically well, the cigar burns well and lasted me a good 25 minutes. A mild to medium cigar with a really smooth draw. Really enjoyed it.

Draw is very easy, if anything lacking a little resistance. Aroma and smoke were impeccable. Slight issue with construction as the outer leaf unwrapped but nothing more than you would expect in terms of the inconsistency of a typical Cuban hand-rolled cigar and did not detract from the enjoyment. Floral, herby and earthy start, leading into a richer, creamier final third. Hint of spice. Will definitely remain near the top of my go-to thirty minute smoke. Top.

Bit more of a nicotine hit than I was expecting Some quite diverse reviews of these on here. Ive had a couple from my first tin of these now and I must say, compared to the lovely Connoisseur No. 1s Ive had and enjoyed, these are quite a bit stronger. (I generally go for a mild smoke so, given these are rated mild to medium, I ought not to have been surprised.) I thought these would make a good accompaniment at this time of year (December) to my morning moccaccino. They do, but leave me a little too woozy for my liking. Just my preference, of course. Shall certainly persist through the rest of the tin, but, for me, not for a working day morning.

Out of a tin of five cigars only two were satisfactory. The three that werent had a coarse wrapper which tended to unravel and burn very unevenly. All of them proved difficult to keep lighted after the half way mark. Reasonable flavour once alight but with the difficulty of maintaining a steady, even burn they either produced too much smoke or just fizzled out. I far prefer the Davidoff Churchill Bellicoso Traveller which is better constructed, more dependable and cheaper.

Mild/Medium, decent burn. Bit of sweetness half-way, slight hint of nuts. Pleasant afternoon smoke, around 35 mins with a cigar spear.
