Crafted to the personal tastes of the man himself.
In 1843, a German import/export banker moved to Cuba to secure assets and grow his clientele. He took a liking to the island, and after establishing his business reputation, began making cigars a year later. The man’s name was Herman Upmann, and he named the brand he developed after himself. H. Upmann remains a prominent name in cigar shops more than 175 years later, and the newest H. Upmann cigar not only pays tribute to this great man but is also crafted as a modern take on those original Upmann cigars from way back in 1844.
For the blend, an Ecuador-grown Habano wrapper leaf covers a Dominican binder and long-fillers from the Dominican and the Condega & Esteli regions of Nicaragua. This decidedly modern mix of tobaccos produces a classic, wood-forward profile with ample complexity and undertones of spice, cocoa, and cinnamon that hearkens back to the taste of cigars from yesteryear. Now don your top hat & double-breasted vest, grab a box of Herman’s Batch, and be the first on your block to light up like a 19th-century socialite.
