H. Upmann The Banker

Description

This one comes straight from the vault.

Legend has it that Carl and Herman Upmann, a pair of ambitious German bankers, traveled to Cuba in 1844 with the intention of creating the perfect cigar. This top-secret blend was reserved solely for their most important (read: wealthiest) clients, and was locked in a vault to keep it away from prying eyes. Unfortunately, the bank burned down in the 20s, but luckily enough for you and me, attempts have been made to reintroduce this special concoction. That’s where H. Upmann The Banker comes into play.

Swathed in a super-dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and filled to the gills with vintage long-filler leaves from Nicaragua and the Dominican, this bold treat is worth writing home about. Spicy enough to keep you on your toes without overwhelming, the blend is medium in body with a distinctly creamy texture and features solid, earthy notes. It’s the perfect choice for your favorite hedge fund manager, or for anyone who appreciates a well-made, intensely satisfying Cuban-esque premium handmade with a bit of history behind it.

H. Upmann The Banker received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "The wheaty and raisin-like aromas coming off the cold bouquet of the foot recur on the palate. The cigar also takes on cedary, herbal notes before a coffee finish."

Nothing to complain about here. This stick is consistently an outstanding medium bodied smoke that performs well and delivers some creamy flavors.

Amazing...... One of my favorite smoke. I try it once in a example box n was hooked. A very flavorful cigar. Medium body goes well with a glass of whisky. Have to make sure I always have one or two at home

This brand use to be much better-rolled, but after a few 5-packs I see this isn't so. Very hard draw, I had to use a cigar pick through them. Also, CI must not keep the cigars in a 70% humidity environment... they always arrive a bit dry!! I always have to season them a week or so before I can smoke them.. However, once that is alll done...I find H to be a great smoke, a bit harsh however, I like my smoke like that...Great burn.
