#5 Best Cigar of 2018 - Cigar Aficionado

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

Generous and strong, it has all the virtues of the Habano with pedigree. Excellent draw and burn. Very smooth and consistent.

94 / 100

"...One of the last Cuban Churchills in the Habanos S.A. portfolio is the H. Upmann Sir Winston. It doesn't seem right that such a classic format has been deleted from almost every Cuban brand, but the trend is leaning towards fatter, shorter cigars. We at Cigar Aficionado have lamented this tragedy before, but there's no sense in wasting too much time on what's been lost. Rather, let's focus on the Sir Winston. Its dimensions, 7 inches by 47 ring gauge, are nearly perfect. It's thick enough to deliver ample smoke, thin enough to fit comfortably in your mouth and long enough to give you at least an hour of pleasurable smoking. It's medium bodied, making it approachable for beginners but complex enough for more experienced smokers. The cigar is brimming with refined chocolate, marzipan, floral notes and a sweet, graham cracker finish, all brought together by that unique, inimitable Cuban taste. The size is known as a Julieta No. 2 in Cuban cigar factories, and was a favorite of Winston Churchill, perhaps the most famous cigar smoker in history. He consumed so many Julieta No. 2 cigars that the grand and elegant size was eventually named after him. It's only proper that the H. Upmann Sir Winston happens to be a Churchill..."

Quite possibly the most disappointing cigar I have ever had ......bland, one dimensional just nothing happening.....much prefer the magnum 46 or 50 and not a patch on the RYJ Churchill.......I'm not saying it was bad, it just wasn't that good......sorry but just trying to be honest......

Had my first after a late lunch strolling around Brugge, Belgium in the grey fog. One of the finer pleasures in life to say the least. Smoked it all the way to the knuckles, smooth yet strong flavor and NOT over packed as many Cubanos are. Can I hear a "hoo-ha"?? written by dov

If only the rest of the H. Upmann line was a Sir Winston, they would be one of my favorite brands. Instead, this cigar greatly outperforms its counterparts and makes it one of Havanas "must smokes." A fantastic churchill. written by mmeadows

These are by far my favorite smoke. They start out somewhat mild and build to a medium-full bodied flavor. Great draw, burns very well and a nice grey ash. I personally think they are the best Churchills currently available. written by Stephen

This is the best churchill sized cigar I have ever had. It is priced as a double corona, but it is well worth the money. The cigar begins medium strength, gradually intensifies, and adds more and more flavor along the way. written by CDR
