History of H.UPMANN

These mild to medium bodied cigars have a very smooth and subtle flavor that has been its hallmark since its introduction in 1844. A great favorite among aficionados, the history of this brand began around 1840, when Herman Upmann, banker and almost fanatical cigar enthusiast, offered to open a branch of his family-owned bank in Havana Cuba. In 1844, he (not surprisingly) invested in a cigar factory, and from then until 1922, the company traded as both a bank and a cigar business. In that year, both companies failed, and a British firm, J. Frankau & Co., saved the brand and ran the cigar factory until 1935. It was then sold to the newly-founded Menendez y Garcia Company. And so it was that a legend was re-born. Characteristically, Upmanns offer a smooth, subtle, mild to medium smoke. These cigars are great for beginners, but appeal to the day-time tastes of seasoned connoisseurs. Their larger sizes are among the most rare and sought-after cigars in the world.

I think old fashioned candour marks this Figurado’s style. Its ever present flavours are marked by exotic spices, wood and undertones of grilled peanuts which all go nicely with spicy cuisine and strong liquor. This is a great Torpedo and my favourite! I prefer these to a Monte No.2, I find that the H.Uppman Torpedo, when aged properly, is stronger than the Monte No.2. But that is my opinion! Tell me what you think.
