H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1

November 4, 2013


The Cigar: At 127 x 48 this Hermoso No. 4 is a corona extra, but it looks and feels like a robusto (124 x 50) but no matter how you call it this is a cigar to enjoy, the Connoisseur No. 1 – a true classic, it was already in production before the Cuban revolution – in the picture comes from a 2007 slide lid box of 25 cigars, I am halfway through the box and the manufacturing quality – including consistency of the blend – is top notch.

The Smoke: Abundant smoke here, so be cautious when you cut it, leather and wood constitute the core of this smoke, then roasted coffee and nuts, the second third is the real threat with tons of alternating flavors and hints of sweet spices (cinnamon) – a full bodied cigar though not an overpowering one.

The Score: 94/100
