It’s all about tradition with H. Upmann 1844 Reserve Special Edition Magnum. This fine selection will appeal to cigar enthusiasts who favor old-school blends, like the Cuban behemoths of days gone by. Cloaked in an attractive Ecuadorian Cubano wrapper, this solidly constructed handmade beckons invitingly. Underneath, a bevy of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers ensconced in a Cameroon binder deliver tons of creamy flavors. And I’d be remiss not to mention the smoke production, which is thick and fragrant throughout the entire experience. It may be new, but it certainly has that classic personality that true connoisseurs won’t be able to resist.
“Bought a box and put it in the humidor for two months, 90 minutes of pure bliss, smooth, creamy, tons of smoke, even draw and burn, nice firm 2" ash. No cigar hangover. This one will be going to the Keys this summer when my son and I celebrate our 40th & 60th birthdays.”
