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.

We have all been waiting for H.Upmann to produce great Robustos. We know Habanos can do it, as we saw with the Casa del Habano Series Royal Robustos. Now, Habanos have selected the H.Upmann Robustos to be part of the Edicion Limitada series for 2012. First impressions are very good. The cigar is as good, if not better than the Royal Robustos and has plenty in store to develop with age. Familiar woodiness, but slightly stronger than your average H.Upmann cigar. Limited in numbers.
