Blind Cigar Review: H. Upmann | Yargüera Lonsdale

“Overall, this was a great cigar. The transitions were interesting, I loved the move from pepper and spice to rich and creamy. It’s not one that stands out as mind-blowing, but it was enjoyable throughout, and I would very much enjoy smoking more.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: H. Upmann | The Banker Annuity

“I enjoyed this cigar. It’s milder than my typical smoke, and the blend really focuses on a natural sweet tobacco flavor. It’s a nice change from the earth and chocolate-heavy nicaraguans I tend to favor, and very different from the CC’s I prefer, being much “thinner” in body. While I would generally prefer the richness of a CC or the boldness of a Nicaraguan, this was an interesting change up for me, and one I enjoyed. Recommended for fans of milder smokes, or medium cigars with natural sweet tobacco core flavors like the El Triunfador.” -Derek (StogieNinja)
