H Upmann Majestic BOX OF 25 AB

Price $444.15

As famous a Cuban brand as there is in the world of cigars, the H. Upmann brand dates back to 1844. The famous request of President John F. Kennedy to his press secretary, Pierre Salinger, to obtain these Cuban cigars on the evening prior to the declaration of the American trade embargo in 1961, was for Petit Upmanns. Available in a stunning range of handmade and machine-made sizes, the brand offers a mild to medium strength.

Further Information about this fine Cuban Cigar

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 1920s but his cigars live on as a fine example of an elegant light to medium-flavoured Habano.

All the leaf in H. Upmann is from the Vuelta Abajo tobacco region.  Gold medals in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 19th Century adorn the box — as does Herman Upmann’s personal signature.

This Cuban line is a great example of diversity of flavors and strength within the same line of cigars.  Look for very different strengths based on size and vitola. The Magnum 46 will be seen by most as a powerhouse 6 12 of 10 while the very similar Conniseur No 1 seems more a medium with softer rounder flavors.  The line generally imparts dry tea, nuttiness, a slight spice and even come citrus.  Again, looks for differences with each and enjoy.
