H. Upmann 1844 Reserve

H. Upmann, reborn.

H. Upmann has a strong track record in the cigar industry. With Cuban-roots dating back to 1844, and a history of top-selling blends from the Dominican Republic, H. Upmann is known for their smooth, flavorful handmade cigars that deliver time and time again.

The classic H. Upmann line from the Dominican Republic recently underwent a complete overhaul. Packing change, a slightly tweaked blend, and even a new front mark - H. Upmann 1844 Reserve. I'll be the first to admit, I was skeptical. Why mess with success? But after burning a few, I realized why. This cigar is legit - a major improvement, no doubt.

The new H. Upmann 1844 Reserve features a dark, reddish-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that's oily and leathery. Underneath, a Nicaraguan binder and all-Dominican long-filler blend complete the ensemble. The result is a smooth, medium-bodied cigar that's rich in flavor and complete with notes of earth, nuts, pepper, and cedar. Delicious indeed and a fitting complement to the storied H. Upmann name.

H. Upmann 1844 Reserve earned a spot in the Top 25 Cigars of the Year and received a stellar, 93-point rating, noting: "A beautifully made pyramid with a superbly even burn and lush draw that layers the palate with earth, cedar, mineral and rich tobacco intonations."

Demitasse are great smokes for when you need a quick one
Nice smoke and lasts longer than the short smoke and good quality.

Cigar heaven
One hour and fifty minutes of pure cigar smoking heaven. From the moment you take it out of the humidor until you reluctantly set it in the ashtray for the last time, everything is perfect. These Churchills will have a permanent spot reserved, some buried to see how well they age, and a couple handy on the top shelves.

Top quality smoke.
Bought one of these today at my local shop, this may be the ideal after dinner treat. Nice even burn, tight ash and a good leather flavor throughout. Kinda tough to keep cool during the last 3rd but overall a great choice.

Great Smoke, smooth all the way thru

Overall excellent smoke!
After smoking a church hill I read several reviews and saw mostly excellent but some poor reviews. My experience was both. The cigar started out harsh and was burning badly, though it had a perfect draw. After five minutes and one relight, it became the cigar I had read about in the excellent reviews. Very smooth and tasty with a great leather flavor and good finish. I did have to pay attention and take more frequent puffs than normal to keep it burning, but other than that an excellent smoke. I will buy again!

This is a well made, easy to draw cigar with great flavor. In the many years I have smoked them I have never had a poorly made or bad cigar. PLEASE, everyone, don't rush to buy them and create a shortage.

Quite good
These are quite good. Not sure why they get some poor reviews. Even burn, smooth. Perfect draw in my opinion.

Customer Service & Pricing
CI's Customer Service is awesome! It should be an example to all businesses to follow. They manifest the motto, "The Customer Comes First". CI's pricing is very reasonable, when compared to other sources. They are always coming up with great cost saving offerings on fine cigars. I appreciate CI's mailed advertising of special offerings and deals, and your website in excellent. Although I don't smoke many cigars (probably about 3 per month), as when I light one up, I enjoy it like a special treat. My father smoked cigars... and during high school I always remembered him giving me the advise: "Son, if you ever smoke cigars, buy the best." I asked him, "How do I know what is the best?" He replied, "smooth start and finish, even burn throughout, flavor increases not decreases... to the point where the richness lasts up to the very end." I also remember him telling me, "the longer the ash, the smoother the smoke. Anyway, whenever I find myself running low on cigars, CI is my go-to source!

Bigger is better.
The demitasse are soft, and their wrappers are a little on the sloppy side, but the taste is ok. It surprised me that there can be such a difference in quality between the sizes.

BEST cigar and cigar value!!!
The H. Upmann 1844 Reserve Churchill is the BEST cigar money can buy - for an incredible price, too! Nice tight, smooth, and even burn. Much better than other more expensive cigars. A true classic that's stood the test of time.

A smooth cigar. Nice smoke with coffee or glass of ice cold Moscato. You will smoke this cigar to your finger nub, so get a cigar spike for "good to the last drop"

Will Buy again
Arrived on time as always, heard so much about them so after sitting in the humidor for a few days I had to light one up, the flavor was from the start all the way through, one of those sticks you don't want to stop smoking.

I was very amazed at the quality of these cigars. Very flavorful and a great smoke.

High hopes, but let down.
I received one of these as part of a sampler. I had high hopes, it was well wrapped, tight and smelled great. However, the burn was uneven, difficult draw and very little smoke for the effort. Had to re-light twice. It smoked decent for a draw or two in the middle, but then went back to being difficult with little smoke. Based on other reviews, it sounds like I got the dud.

Awesome Smoke
I can always rely on these for a quality smoke.

A tasty, middle of the road smoke.
Leather, chestnut, a hint of clove, traces of peat and sea mist, with a buttery center note. An excellent middle of the road smoke, no weak, and not with out character.

Noob Liked It
This was probably my 20th and 25th cigars after taking up the hobby in earnest. Pre-light was leather and sweet tobacco. I cut it and toasted. The first third gave me nuts and leather; no pepper. Good light, draw, and ash; a razor burn. Pleasant wood flavors coming up into the first inch. On the mild side of mild-medium, but a good finish; heck even the smoke off the cigar between puffs is pleasant. Second third brought hints of pepper coming in, along with a nice toastiness. Final third adds a bit of cedar to the mix, near as I can tell. A very pleasant stick. It's weird but I keep lipping the head because it's so tasty! I nubbed it good.

H Uppman 1844 --- solid,solid, solid
The 1844 from H Uppman is a really good cigar!! Since I discovered it a year ago, it has become my go-to cigar. It is well constructed and has great taste. I am never disappointed in how this cigar smokes, and the quality plus the modest cost make the 1844 a tremendous value. Two thumbs up !!!

Most enjoyable cigar I smoke. Very smooth.
Customer Testimonials
Had one last night with a glass of Bourbon, and a night turned wonderful. This is not a complex, powerful, and dynamic cigar, but it is a very tame one. That is not saying that it is mild either. It is flowery with good amount of smoke and gorgeous ash, nice even draw and beautiful build. I can say it is as close to a Cuban as it can be. After I finish it, a Partagas Lusanita reappeared in my mind. This cigar is not for smoking when you are busy, but for a total relaxation time, a quiet night, a quiet day. I can see to smoke an Alec Bradley or AJ Fernandez or even Patel at the bar or at the poker game with my friend. However I can only imagine to enjoy this Upmann sitting at my back yard with a glass of bourbon and all by myself. Thank you H. Upmann.
LN of Lake in the Hills, IL
....Really liked the flavor of this H. Upmann. The draw was a little harder than I expected; however, the burn was really bad. Had to keep lighting one side to keep it straight. Had to relight it twice as it went out completely. Got the 5 pack Belicoso a week ago and this is the first one I've smoked. Hopefully it was the exception and the other 4 will be better. Really did love the taste though. Probably my favorite in that department. Will let the others sit until summer and see what they are like.
MR of Kempner, TX
Out of 10 I give this cigar a 7.
KC of Anchorage, AK
Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Voluminous smoke output even at rest. Easy draw and thick smoke on palate. Mild to medium strength and solid medium flavors. Initial flavors of caramel, cream, nutmeg and hay. Very smooth blend with no spice or bitterness. Soft, medium length finish of salted nuts, vanilla and sweet cedar.
Enjoyed the Churchill for over 2 hours last night during a poker game. Overall, not the most complex of flavors, but a nice mild-medium taste and aroma. Smooth, easy, even burn and draw.
TD of Brooklyn, NY
This is the only cigar I keep in a humidor all its own. I find them to be the most enjoyable of all the brands I smoke.
Superb smoke! Tasty and terrific with a good Cab!
SM of Hanover, MD
Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Minimal resistance on draw. Voluminous smoke output. Smoke is thick and creamy on the palate. Medium to full strength with medium flavors. Initial flavors of chocolate and cream upon first light add dark fruit, leather and nuts. A slight black pepper spice randomly appears from time to time on the medium length finish. A very consistent flavored cigar with a noticeable increase in strength on the second half.
While not having the gift of flavor descriptions as many do. I still believe I can do justice to the quality of the Hupman reserve 7x50. I've truly been blessed when it comes to the amount of different brands I've smoked. Due to my job taking me to different parts of the world. This gave me the chance to purchase Cubans, & others that were made within a country I was in. Nothing like a tour of a well known cigar factory then purchasing a few at the end of the tour. My reason for giving this information is to establish I have some credibility. Upon lighting the Hupman my first thought was how similar it was to many top shelf cigars such as AVO XO, San Cristobal, The Garcia line, & even a modest priced Diesel or RP Edge. It was very bold yet not over powering, that produced a smooth creamy smoke. Plenty of ash along with smoke, produced an even draw all the way down the Churchill. Never was it harsh, bitter, or numbed your palate. With enough strength to please, yet you never seem to notice anything but how well it developed inch after inch. This is not a fast smoking cigar & should never be smoked when In a rush. I will leave it to others who are far better than I to give the different flavored notes you experience within this cigar. A must try for those who love to find new quality cigars.
DM of Hixson, TN
Man, I tried one of these things on lunch at work and was puffing away on it trying to hit every flavor that I could, since this stick had more than a couple. Super smooth and creamy at the end, and found myself smoking to the nub 15 minutes late from lunch! Competes with Romeo Y Julieta's without a doubt. I want more
TM of Denver, CO
This is a great cigar! I detect notes of almond or cherry, something that gives it an incredible and unforgettable flavor a few minutes into smoking it, when the flavor profile opens up a bit. If you want to buy a quality cigar at an affordable price, this is the cigar for you!
RD of Colchester, VT
This is not my father's H Upmann! I tried this US legal brand many times over the 40+ years I have smoked cigars and found them boring and too lacking in taste and strength. I just returned from Paris where I smoked several Cuban Upmann Reserva Limitada 2009 maduro cigars and found them great and much better than they used to be, so I tried this US legal Upmann in a churchill upon my return. They have also really changed, and this now is a great cigar. Medium in taste, but medium-full in strength and tasting almost like a maduro, it will make a great change of pace between the Diesel Unholy and other full strength cigars I usually smoke. I can only guess that they have added Nicaraguan ligeros to it. I would say it is just as good as the Cuban products and at 1/3 the price.
Tried a Belicoso for the first time and wow! Super creamy and great draw. I was feeling the power towards the end but kept going till my fingers were burning hold on to the smallest of nubs. Holy cow! I had to sit down a bit to recover from the power of this bad boy. It comes across as a medium flavored cigar but it packs a punch. I guess smoking on an empty stomach didn't help but I love it and will definitely be ordering more. Just make sure you eat...
RR of Hermosa Beach, CA
I'm a beginner cigar smoker, but have been a lover of fine bourbons for years now. I've tried a dozen or so cigars to find my preference and I have to say... WOW! I have found it. I am completely caught up in the flavor patterns of the 1844 Reserve maduro... I love it! This cigar will have its own seperate humidor that's mine and mine alone :-) There's not much I can say except WOW.... On a side note, I randomly found out that a root beer makes an awesome flavor explosion with this smoke.
SF of Booneville, MS
Wonderful cigars for the price. Good taste, good build, good smoke. Good. My daily cigar.
the Upmann reserve is a smooth tasty medium strength cigar. It lights well burns evenly and is a good smoke.
It's no wonder the 1844 Reserve was among Cigar Aficianado's Top 25 cigars for 2012. Great flavor! One of my favorite cigars and I smoke plenty in a week's time.
AC of Chapin, SC
My, this is a TASTY CIGAR! I got a box of the Belicoso and they are spice sticks! Rich, but not to strong. Creamy but not to mild. Oily, oily wrapper that is bronze chocolate! The draw is perfect, the burn is perfect! I have smoked Cubanos that were not this good! Get a box of these and add them to your humidor. Great job H.Upmann!
JS of Arlington, TN
Often overlooked among the venerable brands, the H. Upmann 1844 Reserve cigars are wonderful cigars with excellent construction and draw. Notes of citrus and nuts are present. Both of my humidors are always stocked with these cigars (at least 2 boxes), with a few H. Upmann Sun Growns and Partagas 1845s thrown in, if space is available. Paired with Chivas Regal, they represent the finer things in life.
DS of Corvallis, OR
Absolutely Enjoyable!! Visited a local Cigar shop and purchased one Churchill H.Upmann 1844 reserve to try out. Smoked it at the lounge area and fell in love with it! I'm a maduro smoker but I really enjoyed it so much that I went ahead and purchased the only box of Churchill that they had! I thought that it was going to be like a natural taste,NOT! It was smooth and tasted like a maduro. Upon running out I will not hesitate to buy another box!
