The H. Upmann brand is among the oldest in the premium cigar industry, around for over 175 years in fact, and H. Upmann 175 Anniversary cigars capture the essence of the storied H. Upmann brand with an incredibly good blend of top-quality tobaccos.

Before founding the H. Upmann brand in 1844, Hermann Upmann arrived in Cuba working for an importing and exporting business and soon established a bank to cater to Cuba’s tobacco industry. It was then that Upmann fell in love with tobaccos and cigars, and the H. Upmann brand was born.

The H. Upmann brand is also credited with being the first to package cigars in cedar boxes, a presentation that has stood strong to this day. Today, the H. Upmann brand is a key member of the Altadis U.S.A. portfolio with a slew of top-rated blends.

To do H. Upmann’s history justice, Altadis turned to none other than the famous blender Abdel “A.J.” Fernandez and his Nicaraguan factory in Esteli. Using extensively aged Nicaraguan tobaccos, what makes these gems truly special is the top-shelf Medio Tiempo wrapper. This wrapper was fermented intermixed with broadleaf to slow the process and imparts a unique sweetness to the leaf.

Once lit, your palate will be greeted by a rich and complex medium-full bodied smoke brimming with notes of white pepper, leather, earth, nuts, sweet cream, and hints of vanilla. Whether you are a fan of H. Upmann, AJ Fernandez, or just love a good, flavorful smoke, these gems will be right at home in your humidor.

Offered only as a 7x50 Churchill vitola and available in boxes of 10, H. Upmann 175 Anniversary has been made in limited quantities, so secure your box today by placing your online order with JR Cigars!
