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 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..."

The best value cigar from Cuba. Great smooth, mild, coffee and sweet notes with a peppery end at the end. Amazing value for size and quality. The best selling Cuban cigar at Turmeaus Liverpool. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador

I purchased this as it was Cigar of the week. Im new to cigars and found this drew well and wasnt harsh at all, even in the final 3rd. Lasted 25 minutes and I would buy again. I did experience a slight uneven burn but wasnt a big issue.

Hi! Smoked around 5 of these in total and can say that they are great flavoured and very nicely priced, but they have a significant drawback - 4/5 of them were almost unsmokable and were super tight on the draw, felt like i was blowing baloons for a childs birthday for half an hour, not smoking a cigar.

Initially flavour was modest with an evenish burn and nice draw. Later on the flavour increased and I detected some pepper and slight nuttyness. As the cigar progressed the nuttyness became more distinct and to me was like KP dry roasted peanuts - very nice. This continued until the the nuttyness faded into the usual spicy mush you get at the end of cigars. Even then I detected the ocassional herby note. Overall this cigar was not what I was expecting. It wasnt as Cuban as other Cubans Ive smoked but due to the very authentic nuttyness just as enjoyable. Considering price and the enjoyment factor its a cigar I can recommend.

Really sturdy construction, tight and firm but good draw without being tough. Taste isnt overly mild but smooth and creamy and lasted for a good 50 + minutes. Suitable for a cutter or punch and did not suffer any sponginess during the smoke either and flavours were consistent.
