Personal Cigar Review: H. Upmann 175th Anniversary

Overall, the H. Upmann 175th Anniversary was average throughout. I was looking forward to this specially fermented wrapper, but it was run over by the typical AJ Fernandez flavor profile which was disappointing. The flavor profile and price will likely steer me away from revisiting. I'd love to see this wrapper used by another blender just to see what it could do.

I like this H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro release for H. Upmann and Altadis. I loved the flavor profile that the tobacco in the cigar produced and it is definitely a cigar that many should try. It may not be for everyone, but it is worth trying out and seeing how the different types of tobacco smoke, especially the Dominican tobaccos.

Team Cigar Review: H. Upmann Connecticut by Grupo de Maestros Toro

The H. Upmann Connecticut by Grupo de Maestros Toro carried a fairly traditional Connecticut shade profile with a slightly amped up strength level. While the flavor profile is pretty typical of many other Connecticut shade cigars, the price point for the vitola is attractive.
