Cigar News: Altadis Announces Limited H. Upmann The Banker Private Holding Ingot
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — H. Upmann has always helped celebrate the richest moments in life by hand‐selecting and incorporating choice tobaccos into its heritage line. This April, aficionados will be excited to see the next, limited‐edition
release from the H. Upmann vault: Ingot TheBANKER Private Holding. The Upmann brothers’ dream and goal was to make exceptionally unique cigars. After production they would securely lock these cigars away in their vaults to be gifted to their most important clientele. Now, adult cigar enthusiasts have the opportunity to enjoy these cigars, as the H. Upmann Ingot can now be a prized possession in their humidors— and only 4,500 boxes will be produced.
Featuring a Criollo ’98 wrapper with lush Nicaraguan tobaccos included in both the binder and filler, the H. Upmann Ingot does not disappoint, delivering dividends of a full‐bodied cigar with rich and exotic aromas. The box, which replicates a gold ingot, has a distinctive, high‐value shelf presence. Each eight‐count cigar box is shaped like a gold bar and is individually marked for authenticity. This neatly square pressed 54 x 6” Toro will catch your eye immediately as you pull one from the box. Submerged in gold, the cigar features an impressive three–quarter gold foil sleeve accompanied by two matte gold cigar bands.
This “gold bar” will be shipping in May and will be priced at $9.25 a cigar.
