H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua

The perfect mistake

Join me on a quick journey, we’re going back to the past… I’ve got a story to tell that you’ll find most interesting. Right around 2014, the blenders behind H. Upmann had finally finished crafting their newest cigar: the Legacy Nicaragua. Rolled in one size, a gorgeous 6”x54 Torpedo, they sent a huge order to the factory in anticipation of the release… but the release never came. Join me now, in 2017, where we stare down these three-year-aged, perfectly blended beauties that never were. 

H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua never received an official release, so you won’t find any fancy packaging or boxes here. What you will find, however, is a handmade cigar utilizing 100% Nicaraguan grown tobaccos for the wrapper, filler, and binder. After taking a cedar nap for over three years, each cigar comes equipped with rich flavor, handsomely delivering notes of cedar, spice, earth, and almonds on each puff. You’ll never find aged H. Upmanns going this low again, so I’d heartily recommend you secure yourself a bundle today.

Great smoke!!!
Pretty spicy jem half way down and got heavier on every puff. I’m not a big fan of the torpedo but after doing the initial cut I used my punch and the draw was perfect.

I've been really enjoying these. I usually need to relight towards the end of the smoke, but the mild spice flavor is great.

Decent smoke
A little less than I hoped for from Upman, but is enjoyable to the end. Burn can get a little uneven, but the bottom line is I don't put it down until the last inch or so.

Good smooth smoke for a shorter time period. Mild tobacco, good draw. But goes out after 3-4 minutes if left unattended.

Burn unevenly
Not a bad cigar while it stayed lit, unfortunately it burned unevenly and required frequent relighting. At times this would happen so often I'd throw half the cigar away in frustration. I don't have this problem with my other cigars.

H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua Belicoso
They look and smell great, but they will not stay lit. Maybe they were too humid during shipping, but it has been over 3 weeks and they still will not smoke well. I love H. Upmann and am dissapointed in this box. Hopefully they end up smoking better in the coming weeks, if the moisture was the culprit.

Very good pyramid cigar. Some spicy notes complimenting a smooth medium bodied tobacco flavored stick. I looked forward to smoking this stick every day!

A good cigar and a steal at this price!
A good cigar with a rich taste for moderate to full cigar and well worth it at the price offered. Burns well and draws well. It loses a little at the end but otherwise is as good as most the upper priced cigars.

I haven't smoked a lot of Upmann's over the years but have liked them when I did. These were on sales at a great price so I took a chance, really glad I did. Well constructed, good draw, full flavor, strong without being harsh. I'll keep my eyes open for another sale.

Ok but small ring size
Good smoke. But heads up. Harsh at first . Ring size is a a mistake- more like Ike a 50! Discount on next order was given. Burns even en and easy draw.

It appears these cigars have been around awhile. The wrapper is dry and breaking apart. It was a smooth draw albeit a little hot. I expected more from Upmann

Aging will not help the flavor.
I gave these 3 stars because they burned great, great construction and firm ash. That's it. The flavor is very strange, I did not care for it. That was probably the reason for the delay in the release. As far as flavor goes I enjoy a wide variety of cigars. Complexity is great such as a La Boheme, Varina Farms and pretty much everything from Don Peppin of Abraham Flores. But then again I also enjoy simplicity. Something like a Hemingway or Partagas Cifuentes. I even enjoy most of the Drew Estate infused creations, not enough to buy a box. A single or fiver is about it. But these Upmans, basically, taste awful. They were not pleasing to my palate. I didn't even give any away because most of my friends aren't regular cigar smokers and I had a real fear that these cigars would totally kill their desire and passion for cigars. Honestly, this tobacco should be fed to the horses or composted and used for fertilizer.

Decent smoke; good value
The first one out of the pack was a bit harsh, so I let them acclimate for a few weeks in my humidor. The one I had last night was much improved over that first one. Mostly smooth and no hot spots. Construction and burn were even. Considering what I paid, it's a great value smoke.

Mediocre but ok for the price
Burns hot and the flavor is also a bit one dimensional. Sometimes the draw was too tight as well. Adequate for a daily but I will not buy again.

Not the Upmann I remember
I haven't smoked an H. Upmann for several years, but I always remembered them as being a high quality good even smoke. Not these. Poor uneven burn and the taste is rough around the edges. I would not waste my money on them again.

worst cigar I've ever had
I've had good Upmann cigars before. that's why I got these. But these are horrible. Harsh, hot, won't stay lit and a lousy taste. No wonder they got sidelined as it said in the ad.

My New Favorite
Great taste, high-quality workmanship, burns straight. This cigar is the best I have experienced in quite some time. It is very important, at least to me, the cigar not fall apart or burn haphazardly. Far too often, lately, the workmanship, even on higher priced cigars, has been below acceptable. Not so with this well-made cigar. For those looking for great taste and quality feel, I highly recommend this cigar,

Upmann Legacy Nicaragua Belicoso Not Quite As Expected
I have enjoyed a number of Upmann cigars but this did not meet expectations. It was very tough to get a draw on this cigar - with about 60% of the stick left I gave up.

Did not expect to enjoy this stick as much as I did. This Upmann has a deep rich flavor and only gets better as it burns. Be careful with this cigar it will tempt you to burn your fingers getting the last smooth draw.

Big Surprise
I thought I was getting a bargain. Surprise,surprise! I thought Upmann was a premium brand. Two out of the twenty burned evenly, the rest had poor construction. Most had holes throughout the filler and took at least three times of lighting to get them to burn evenly. Only good part of these was the taste.

Old School Satisfaction
Smoked only one of these as I prefer they rest in my humidor for a while before enjoying them. Very satisfying smoke that should get better with age...
3 out of 5
Needs time in the Humidor
Appearance was great. Construction was very good. Let them rest two weeks before my first smoke, and I don't think that was long enough. Draw was good, but it would not stay lit, had to relight several times, which gave a very bitter and harsh flavor. A little disappointed for an H. Upmann, but hopefully it improves with some time in the humidor

bad cigars
I've never had a bad box of H. Upmann, until I purchased the Legacy Nicaragua. The burn is uneven and I constantly get a terrible tar build up. Im definitely experiencing buyers remorse. I now see why they were a "deal" and had a great introductory price. Not worth the money.

Review of H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua Belicoso
Good medium body flavor, however the cigar burns unevenly and goes out 3-4 times unless you are constantly puffing on it. I am hoping that proper humidification corrects this issue.

While the flavor wasn't all that bad, the construction was terrible. Primarily lots of tunneling. Most ended up in the trash. Would not buy these again.

Great, well-constructed and flavorful smoke
This is a well-made, solid medium strength smoke. Good draw, very smooth, well-constructed and consistent flavor notes throughout. Starts well and ends well, no harsh notes as you finish. Burn is even - no cupping or problems with the wrapper. Good ash, no need to relight. Flavor is good. I’m more of a medium to mild smoker, but with thicker, quality cigars I can handle medium to medium strong. Love this cigar - got it on sale, and will definitely buy more when I see them again on sale.

was very, very disappointed at
was very, very disappointed at the first two smoked. For about the first 2 inches of being lit, they would burn only the top half. Had to finally cut off the two inches and smoked the rest. It was ok then. The rest of the box was ok in that it burned well
