Arbitrage Great looking and smoking cigar. Medium flavors of earth & spices. 5 5 1
Arbitrage The Banker series is outstanding. The consistency is wonderful every time you get one you know you are in for a treat. The flavors are very enjoyable however they are not that complex. 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is an enjoyable smoke the h upmann banker arbitrage loaded with flavor a nice burn but doesn't come off with a lot of over kill. Very Nice. 4 5 1
Arbitrage A nice medium bodied cigar. Earthy taste. Performs well with a good draw and burn. Not a special occasion or super premium but has a nice presentation & is a good smoke. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Just finished one of these from a box I bought. Beautiful fragrant wrapper great construction burns and draws very well. Peppery and woody at first light it settles into a very smooth creamy earthy smoke with bold flavors. A really good cigar! 5 5 1
Arbitrage A very nice cigar good smoke output Earth cedar and cream on the pallet. Won these on a rapid-fire auction on a killer deal after falling in love with the annuity size. Pairs perfectly with a strong old-fashioned neither drowns our the other. Give it a try. 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is my go to cigar for when I have an hour alone to enjoy my smoke buns well with flavor not too mild all I can say is enjoy 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is a good mild long smoke. Very nice for sitting by the fire with my favorite scotch. 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is a constant in my humidor. The banker is always a pleasing smoke right down to the fingers. Packed with flavor and a smooth draw you can't go wrong with this beauty. 3 5 1
Arbitrage Arbitrage is a Churchill. Burns long and smokes great. I like this over the annuity toro. It has deeper flavors of coffee and chocolate. Decently potent and spicy. 4 5 1
Arbitrage The Banker by H. Upmann is a very nice cigar. Nice coffee and leather notes and a super smooth smoking experience. 3 5 1
Arbitrage My favorite H.Upmann that is not a Cuban. Strong flavors from start to finish. Slick wrapper that just feels. Perfect 4 5 1
Arbitrage Good taste on these and I notice this peculiar fizzy taste that makes me enjoy them even more. Rich woody flavor on the backend makes it even better 5 5 1
Arbitrage this was a lil better than last but still no excitement with this stick to me just a vaerage stick not worth price i would say no on this and thats it 3 5 1
Arbitrage What can I say I love h upmann cigars and this one is no exception. They have a great aroma and construction draw and Aroma was delightful 5 5 1
Arbitrage I bought three of these at three different locations and wasn't very impressed. For me it was an overall ok experience. 3 5 1
Arbitrage Overall they smoked great but the flavor is not for me. I smoked five of them over a months time and everyone tasted bitter start to finish. A very consistant flavor from one to another and were easy to smoke just too bitter for me. 3 5 1
Arbitrage This is an always consistent smoke!! I'm head over heals for this one of a kind smoke!! I recommend to all 4 5 1
Arbitrage This Banker is just a steady as she goes tried and true winner. Nothing overly remarkable just a good solid cigar at a fair price. 5 5 1
Arbitrage The banker is a good cigar. I personally liked it but didn't love it. I am a big flavor guy and to me there just wasn't enough flavor for me I tend to like a more complex flavored cigar. With that being said the draw and consistency were great. Very smooth draw nice cool thick smoke. It's a great cigar for the begginer trying to broaden their horizon 4 5 1
Arbitrage I have only tried one of these but I definitely want to try more the one I had had a bit of trouble with the draw 4 5 1
Arbitrage Great peppery and spicy cigar with hints of cedar. Add a few of these to your collection. 5 5 1
Arbitrage I didn't think anything of this stick until I tried it and boy was I surprised! Upmann really went above and beyond with this stick and it is so tasty! 4 5 1
Arbitrage Tried this smoke out of curiosity because it was one of the specials at the time that i dropped in the store. Thought it would be better than it was but i know this is sometimes the case with many cigars. Construction was good. Did not come apart. Taste wasn't anything that that would set it apart from others. Decent everyday smoke although i would pick others over it. Overall it was an okay cigar. 3 5 1
Arbitrage The banker is another of my favorite cigarsgreat all around This cigarhas great tastegreat structure great burn time very smooth burn rate this a 9.75 out of 10 5 5 1
Arbitrage I had one of these in a sampler a while back. I enjoyed it but wouldn't recommend it at full price. 4 5 1
Arbitrage A delicious medium cigar with many rich flavors. A very even burn all the way throughout the cigar. 4 5 1
Arbitrage I've been smoking H. Upmann cigars for years. I use to buy boxes of H. Upmann's when you offered the signature series and they are great cigars. I wanted to try a box of The Banker and about 3 of them had a very hard draw. There were a couple that had very tiny holes in the cigar so it was more like puffing air. All the rest were great! I will get another box sometime in the future. Good cigars are expensive and it is disturbing when there are some bad ones in a bundle or box. 3 5 1
Arbitrage Tastes great and we'll constructed. Elegant taste and burns smoothly. Nice packaging as well. Impress your guests with this one. 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is a fabulous smoke. It's good to see the Upmann name on a large size cigar again as I believe it has been many years since they released a cigar of this size. I bought a box of these about a year ago and have pulled one out of the humidor when I need to treat myself. Typical Dominican mild smoke with a nice filler blend to give it some unique characteristics. The five pack is a great way to keep a few around for those occasions. I did run across a little bit of inconsistency but isn't that what handmade cigars are all about? 4 5 1
Arbitrage Fantastic cigar brand. I enjoyed the long cool draw from the cut. The taste was consistent throughout. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Very nice cigar all around. 5 5 1
Arbitrage A little dry. Cracked when I smoked the first one. Haven't had another yet. Disappointed. 2 5 1
Arbitrage I actually just won a auction for five of these! It’s a good old fashioned cigar! Full body smooth spicy ending 5 5 1
Arbitrage Very good cigar 5 5 1
Arbitrage excellent cigar. one of my favorites. 5 5 1
Arbitrage Very good flavor 5 5 1
Arbitrage H.Upmann pays huge dividends with this great smoke. The largest of the Banker family, it will provide hours of enjoyment while you watch you portfolio grow! 5 5 1
Arbitrage this cigar is fantastic. I truly love this stick. its priced great and smokes well. buy these for sure 5 5 1
Arbitrage Not a fan of this cigar. No flavor to speak of at all yet it was still harsh at times. I won't be smoking more. 1 5 1
Arbitrage These are nice cigars. The taste is full with a nice slow even burn. Try them and I think you'll smoke them again! 4 5 1
Arbitrage Everything about this one was middle of the road. Not something I’d smoke a lot. Kind of just meh. 4 5 1
Arbitrage The banker arbitrage is IMO the best of the banker line. The flavors a just a little stronger than the rest and perfectly balanced with a nice bourbon! 5 5 1
Arbitrage H upmann the banker Arbitrage is one of my all-time favorites great taste smooth great 5 5 1
Arbitrage The Banker begins with a hearty profile of leather and earthy notes accompanied by a bed of spice. On the back end of the flavors some dry cedar is found which really stands out the retrohale along with peppery spice. Just past the inch mark chocolate begins to peek through on the finish of the smoke. The burn produces a white ash that is holding firm well past an inch. 5 5 1
Arbitrage Really good cedar flavor. I usually try not to spend this much on a stick but these are worth it. I had one then bought more. 4 5 1
Arbitrage The H. Upman is a large cigar with great relaxing flavor. It's a smoke that lasts well over an hour of pleasure. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Great cigars. Had a great flavor and good smoke. Great for when you want to treat yourself. 4 5 1
Arbitrage As an aficianado this is one of my favorites as long as the price is right. They draw nice taste great burn evenly and last a good hour to an hour and a half. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Worth every penny. It's no wonder they are hardly ever On sale! Smooth and tasty. Have been able to get 3 hours on a couple. Burns even. 4 5 1
Arbitrage I haven't actually smoked one yet I have two in my humidor resting for about 3 months. Waiting for a special occasion. They look and smell great. 3 5 1
Arbitrage H Upmann is usually a consistently excellent brand however the Banker series fails to sincerely impress. It is a quality smoke to be sure but not of a quality truly worthy of the H Upmann brand. While the blend of tobaccos remains flavorful the dreadful inconsistency of construction is unavoidable. At an $8.75 per stick msrp one should not expect to find cigars so loosely rolled that they literally pinch flat upon application of gentle pressure. One should expect even and consistent burning ( without the need for relights) in addition to quality complexity of flavor. Perhaps these inconsistencies are to be expected. All cigar lines in the struggle to expand market share roll out new varieties. Sometimes these new varieties are successful and sometimes less so. How are the mighty fallen? When they commit more focus to excellence in packaging than excellence in construction. Going forward I will stick to the standard H Upmann cabinet selections. They are vastly superior in my judgement. 3 5 1
Arbitrage Very woody leafy grassy taste. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Boy what an awakening ! I could not believe how good this cigar was it looked like a decent cigar. After I lit it up and let it burn a short while I was amazed at how smooth and tasty it was but what really caught me off guard was it stayed that way thru the first two thirds of my smoke! The last third was better it was slightly richer and flavorful but still not hot and peppery. Best surprise I've had in a long time. I will keep buying them as long as they keep making them 5 ****. 5 5 1
Arbitrage I'm not a big fan of H. Upman cigars but this had more flavor than their regular fare. If they go on sale try one or five. 3 5 1
Arbitrage The banker is a good cigar. I personally liked it but didn't love it. I am a big flavor guy and to me there just wasn't enough flavor for me I tend to like a more complex flavored cigar. With that being said the draw and consistency were great. Very smooth draw nice cool thick smoke. It's a great cigar for the begginer trying to broaden their horizon 4 5 1
Arbitrage This cigar is great from the start to finish. Smooth oily wrapper and a nice medium to full bodied smoke. Great draw and consistency. 5 5 1
Arbitrage A really classy smoke. Medium flavor profile with excellent burn and construction. The tissue wrap adds some class. 4 5 1
Arbitrage This is a tasty cigar unlike anything else I have smoked. It is not for the faint of heart or for those who don't have a long amount of time to smoke. Finished the cigar in about an hour and a half gently coaxing the flavors. The draw was not the best but slightly understandable as the cigar is so firmly packed. 4 5 1
Arbitrage OILY OILY AND OILY. Personally not a fan of very OILY cigars. Taste oily. Burns oily. Looks oily. Feels oily. No thank you 3 5 1
Arbitrage Super slow cool burning gem. Don't start with this thing planning to finish in less than 3 hours. It's a beauty. 5 5 1
Arbitrage One of my favorites. Flavors of chocolate all throughout the smoke with different notes of earth and coffee joining the party. Draw is a little stuff but great smoke 4 5 1
Arbitrage Made by one of the top groups in the industry looks phenomenal sleek and very appealing with a great taste and reputation.....what could be wrong?? 5 5 1
Arbitrage Always a great smoke from HP Upmann. Smooth easy draw with flavors of toast tobacco and creamy nut notes. A definate relaxer. 5 5 1
Arbitrage A favorite of mine. Very elegant feel and sensation the draw is perfect. The cigar feels as sexy as it tastes! Definately an hour of pure relaxation and flavors that satisfy. Not excessively strong but very satisfying. 4 5 1
Arbitrage Another good stick from upman one of my go to smokes. Worth the purchase 4 5 1
Arbitrage I tried two of these both of which had some consistency issues with the cigar fill. there was smooth flavor in this mild cigar. 3 5 1
Arbitrage As always H Upmann makes a great cigar and the banker is no exception. Nice draw great ash and an all around good smoke. 5 5 1
Arbitrage This is a whole lot of cigar about alittle over an hour burn for me and pretty strong from the first taste it doesn't really build in intensity and alittle spicy 4 5 1
Arbitrage The Banker is just money in the bank. It's smooth classy and rich. A definite must-have in the humidor this one is as great to smoke as it is to share. It burns solid down to the knuckle and has a memorable but not overpowering flavor. You wont't be disappointed if you're looking for a well-constructed medium smoke with lots of mojo. Get a fiver if you're on the fence and it will not dissapoint! 5 5 1
Arbitrage I love this cigar. The price is great and would honestly pay double. Great smoke and a good flavor. 5 5 1
Arbitrage I really liked this cigar except for one thing. The draw. The draw was really really loose on this bad Larry. Might try again. 4 5 1
Arbitrage As per normal H Upman hit it out of the park a great cigar that I have no issues sharing with friends ample flavor but not overpowering good aroma and we'll just small around great stick! 5 5 1
Arbitrage Love these long lasting even burn and very nice taste my kind of cigars 4 5 1
Arbitrage Very pleasant long lasting cigar. The burn was even and the draw consistent. A little too mild for my tastes but great if you like a milder smoke. 4 5 1
Arbitrage The Banker is a great smoke. So many different flavors and it is always enjoyable. Burn is nice and consistent. 5 5 1
Arbitrage Smells great smoked 1 the rest are being aged would try again would buy again highly recommend to those who like a medium to heavy smoke both flavor and strength wise 5 5 1
Arbitrage Very enjoyable! A good long smoke with a smooth flavor and easy draw. Slight inconsistency of fill. Does tend to grow stronger in the last half but then I smoke down to the nub. 4 5 1
Arbitrage My favorite cigar 5 5 1
Arbitrage A very smooth and consistent smoke. Its large size might be unattractive to some but with its very pleasant aromas, easy draw, light cubanesque taste, and very little need for touch ups and re-lights, this cigar is enjoyable from the first puff to the last. 5 5 1
Arbitrage I won an auction for five. Tried one and am impressed. Nice flavor, great draw, consistent smoke. Glad I have tried these. Will be buying more 4 5 1
Arbitrage Most enjoyable evening cigar ! Have had some poor tightly rolled ones forcing me to toss them out 5 5 1

Arbitrage I bought 5 of these. It burned so poorly I couldn't finish it. 2 5 1

Arbitrage Wow, great overall flaor 5 5 1
