As one of the oldest cigar brands around today, H. Upmann has come readily to the lips of cigar connoisseurs for well over a century and a half. The name traces its roots back to 1844 when two brothers, August and Hermann Upmann, who are also attributed with the invention of the cedar box as a means to store cigars, started the brand in Havana.
For the experienced cigar lover looking for a fuller-bodied and complex smoke, the H. Upmann Reserve Maduro cigars are rolled using an aged, rich blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran long fillers, a spicy Nicaraguan binder, and a dark, luxurious San Andres Morrón wrapper, which imparts smooth, creamy flavors and sweet hints of cocoa and coffee.
Wrapper: San Andres Morrón
Filler: Honduran and Nicaraguan
The H. Upmann Reserve Maduro received a stellar, 91-point rating, noting: " It draws very well given its size and delivers a sweet and savory array of nut, leather, caramel and tea flavors."
