SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The H. Upmann Number 2 was named the Cigar of the Year 2022 by Cigar Aficionado Magazine. Rated 98, this cigar wowed the judges; listed to what they had to say:

“If Cuba’s best-known torpedo is the Montecristo No. 2, perhaps the country’s best-kept secret is the H. Upmann No. 2. An insider’s cigar, the H. Upmann No. 2 is a carbon copy of the ubiquitous Monte, sharing the same stately appearance, with its proud, pointed head and substantial 52 ring gauge. Cuba makes fewer H. Upmanns than Montecristos, so the Upmann is a harder find, but well worth the search, with a solid core of earthy flavor, nuts and coffee beans. These are hearty smokes, and for the past three years they have performed consistently well in our blind tastings. The H. Upmann brand is one of the oldest in the cigar world, dating back to 1844. The brand was born as the brainchild of a British banker named Herman Upmann (or Hupmann, depending on what you read). From his legacy, it seems that Mr. Upmann was a better cigar man than he was a banker, something that the cigar world truly appreciates.”

This is a must-try cigar for any serious aficionado. Full-bodied, medium strength. Size: 6 1/8 x 52. Note: these are now shipping in plain packaging.

About H. Upmann Cigars

Herman Upmann was a banker from Germany who loved Cuban cigars. Upmann moved to Havana in 1844 and set up as businesses as both a banker and cigar maker. His bank closed in the early 1920’s but his cigars live on as a fine example of an elegant, light to medium-flavoured Habano.  Upmann’s blends are composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone.  Made using the Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano (long filler, totally by hand) technique.
