H. Upmann Cameroon Certified Vintage Cigars

Standard operating procedure at the giant Menendez y Garcia factory dictates that, each year, 1,000 or so cigars from the regular production runs of every single brand are stashed away. Then, samples of the next year’s production are smoked side by side with those of the previous year in an attempt to ensure continuity of taste and appearance. The H. Upmanns listed here were all part of that process and, for no sane reason other than blind luck, we were able to buy them. And… unlike most of the H. Upmanns made after 1993, all of these dynamite cigars were made with African Cameroon wrappers!
