H. Upmann 175th Aniversary

Among the world's oldest continuously produced cigar brands is H. Upmann, a name that now dates back an astonishing 175 years. Differing from many of the world's most famed legacy marcas, H. Upmann was not the brainchild of a generations-old tobacco family. Instead, Herman Upmann, a German banker, settled in Havana with the hopes of opening a new banking branch. Partnering with his brother, August, the two purchased a small factory and began offering handmade cigars to banking clients (and later a much larger clientele...).

H. Upmann cigars are now produced in Cuba and other major cigar-producing countries throughout the Caribbean (though both separate entities have ties to the same parent company). Concerning the non-Cuban variation, H. Upmann opted to partner with one of the most talented names in the world of premium cigars—A.J. Fernández—when setting out to honor the brand's milestone anniversary.

H. Upmann 175th Anniversary pays tribute to the brand's roots, with Fernández showcasing an authentic puro blend that has been sourced entirely from tobaccos grown on his farms throughout Nicaragua. In addition, the cigar is given an added boost from a unique Medio Tiempo wrapper ingredient. This is a rare leaf that is found on only one out of every 12 of Fernández's crops, located higher than the ligero priming (conventionally the top tobacco priming). Medio Tiempo tobacco receives ample sunlight, translating to a dark, strong, and oily character. Because of these traits, Medio Tiempo is most commonly found in the filler recipe of select cigar blends. To prepare the leaf for wrapper designation, Fernández employed slow and careful fermentation for over three years. The end result is a refined and extremely flavorful experience worthy of the H. Upmann 175th Anniversary.

Hobbyists can expect a long smoking time of roughly two hours, offering deep complexities of oak, nutmeg, oolong tea, zesty cabinet spices, cinnamon, burnt caramel, and an earthy core.
