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..."

Ive tried a few of these now from 3 different boxes, feeling that surely I must have just had bad luck at first. Every single one of these little things Ive tried has been bitter and with an acrid note that lingers in my mouth. Some ground coffee and nuts with an old toasted tobacco quality, but otherwise bitter, acrid and pointless. Despite the tiny length I just couldnt finish any of them they were so unpleasant. The last one I left to rest in the humidor for a few more months and carefully lit it on a nice day after a good meal with my palate feeling very fresh. Still it was the same unpleasant flavour. The only cigar Ive had lately that was worse was the aptly named Dirty Rat from Drew Estate, which wasnt just a poor or unpleasant cigar but just outright disgusting. From other reviews there must surely be much better examples out there that are quite different, but I can only rate it as I have experienced it. Very poor.

My first smoke after a 12 year break and what a welcome return! I chose the half corona size because I wanted to ease my way back in. I always liked Upmann in the past for their full bodied flavours and I was certainly rewarded with this small smoke - full flavour, light smoke, warm taste and soft on the palette. The notes stayed with me all day and it was good to be able to savour that all evening long. It is great to be back and I will be adding this little beauty to my on-line basket again very soon.

Small, mild to medium, sweet and milky coffee notes in the beginning with a peppery end. Perfect for your coffee break. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador

A decent shortish smoke, would be perfect with a coffee because its mild. Burn and draw are really smooth.

One of the nicest cigars I have smoked under a tenner. Well made, plumes of fragrant, smoke, smooth, flavoursome and everything you can wish a good cigar to be. Cant fault it - lovely!
