I'd like to make a reservation, at CIGAR:30, for 27 H. Upmanns.
H. Upmann has been shelling out premium blends for well over 150 years. Their staying power in undeniable and their offerings only seem to get better with age. For their next trick, H. Upmann went better and bolder, delivering a strong and complex, medium to full-bodied treat aimed to please the veterans of the leaf.
Cloaked in a seamless, oil-soaked, dark chocolate-colored San Andres Morrón wrapper, Reserve Maduro is simply a thing of beauty. Ultra-refined long-fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua combine with a vintage Nicaraguan binder to deliver a spicy array of flavors including white pepper, oak, leather, and sweet cream.
H. Upmann Reserve Maduro received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: “This cigar wears a silky wrapper the color of chocolate and is finished with an attractive cap. The draw is a bit firm but offers a spicy, cedary profile with some cocoa notes on the finish. An enjoyable, medium-bodied cigar.”
