H. Upmann is one of the oldest cigar brands in existence, dating back to the 1840s. It was started when Herman Upmann quit his job as a banker in the early 1840’s and went about opening up a branch office in Havana. Upmann quickly realised that he could begin a commercial endeavour in the industry and in 1844 he made the bold investment of a cigar factory and the H. Upmann brand was officially launched. 

Later on in 1922, both the Upmann bank and the cigar business went bankrupt and they had to sell up to J. Frankau & Co., a British firm who continued the production of the cigars up until 1935 at which point the brand was sold on again to the recently established Menendez y Garcia Co., the makers of the famous Montecristo cigar. The new owners continued the production of H. Upmann cigars up until the nationalisation of the tobacco industry after the Cuban revolution.

H. Upmann's blend is composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone and all H. Upmann sizes are ‘tripa larga, totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally handmade.

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


An inexpensive cigar for its size, the majestic projects an image well above its price bracket. The taste is somewhat more intense than many H. Upmanns, but if you know what you are buying, you will be rewarded.

Tasting Notes

A balanced flavour with a toasty tobacco taste. I would recommend ageing this cigar for around 5 years.


89 / 100

"...Squarely pressed with a reddish-brown wrapper, this corona imparts a nutty and woody smoke with hints of leather and licorice, but leaves an ashy aftertaste..."

Lovely smoke. Unlike other recent reviews I did not find these to be a tight draw. Great smoke from start to finish. Nice aroma and pleasant mild taste. No bitterness in the last 3rd. Excellent value.

Really disappointed with what should have been a lovely cigar. The 1st half is a total waste of time due to an almost impossible draw. Half way through you can actually start enjoying it, as the flavour is tremendous. But not sure I could commit to 15 mins of torment to get to the good stuff. Also had a few cracks in the wrapper, probably due to the overly tight roll.

Overall disappointing. The draw on this stick let it down badly. A nice mild balanced flavour profile, it's just a shame that I ended up with jaw ache from having to pull so hard on the draw.

The H Upmann half corona is my favourite cigar, so I was excited to try the Majestic. Unfortunately it was very disappointing. Echoing other recent reviews, the draw is incredibly tight. A previous review mentioned like blowing balloons for a birthday party, that’s not an exaggeration. I ended up leaving half the cigar and trying another day. Regarding taste, there wasn’t any particular notes until the final 20%, which was a pleasant nutty taste. The burn time is around 60min, but this is a by product of how tightly rolled the cigar is. I really think there is a quality control/production issue on this line. Old reviews praise it.

Overall a 7/10 stick mainly let down by its poor draw, I purchased two of these cigars and after attempting the first one I assumed it was just a plugged cigar but I then realised that it is just a tightly packed cigar. Despite the draw making it a little bit of hard work the flavours were quintessentially Cuban, definitely on the milder side as you would expect from the Upmann portfolio progressing to medium in the final third at which time I encountered strong peppery notes as the draw also loosened up. Not unsmokable just hard work ! An overall decent stick with great flavours and complexity.
