H. Upmann Robusto Anejados 2016
H. Upmann Robusto is a rather unusual size as it does not permanently exist in the H. Upmann range. It offers a very pleasing bouquet of sweet cedar, subtle pepper and that unmistakable tobacco aroma one gets from a fine Cuban cigar. Like its predecessors, the cigars have been box aged for between 5 to 8 years in the perfect climatic conditions of Cuba. This will afford the cigars a mellow, more refined taste as the blend of the filler leaves meld together over time realising their full potential.
- Flavour: Light to Medium
- Length: 4 7/8"
- Ring Gauge: 50
- Vitola: Robusto
- Country: Cuba
The cigars are presented in dressed boxes of 25 and carry a second band to identify that they are AÑEJADOS. There is also a sticker on the box lid and like other Habanos Specialities, supply is limited to the quantity initially laid down to age.
H. UPMANN CIGARS
Hermann Dietrich Upmann landed in Cuba in 1843 as an importer of Cuban goods for the city of Bremen, Germany. Quickly seeing the potential of further imports of tobacco he purchased a Cigar Factory and began producing cigars under the H. Upmann brand. The brand flourished but was to stumble with the outbreak of World War 1. The German owned company was closed for 30 months when the Cuban Government declared war on the German State and the market was cut off.
H. Upmann was rescued by the Owners of Montecristo who eventually fled after the Cuban Revolution. Among the best known H. Upmann sizes are the Magnum 46 and Magnum 50 which were introduced in 2008. Other important sizes include the Sir Winston and the Connoisseurs Corona, which was introduced in 2011.
