Altadis U.S.A. announced today the H. Upmann 1844 Añejo. It joins the rest of the recently repackaged 1844 line and will have the same look and feel as the recently updated 1844 Reserve and 1844 Vintage Cameroon.

While the Diademas size was amazing I always find them a struggle with construction, burn, etc. This cigar from a construction point of view was on point. The burn was great, and the cigar smoked perfectly. Would I spend $100 on this cigar if it was regular production? Of course not. Definitely a treat to smoke and I was happy to get the chance. I give this a score of 93.

"This is an exceptionally fine cigar. The complexity and balance of flavor was amazing. The transitions seemed to be constant, although many of them were small. I truly can't think of anything that would have made this cigar better." -Rob (Cigar Federation)

"I liked this cigar. It was very consistent in flavor, burn, and draw throughout. It was very enjoyable, and wish it was actually a little longer!" -Robert (NavyPiper)
"Overall, a decent cigar with very good flavors, body, and some decent complexity. I’d smoke this one if it is affordable as an everyday smoke, but not something I’d load up on boxes with. Definitely worth checking out though!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
Unicorns do exist. Steve Saka should know. He created the Unicorn. The Muestra de Saka Unicorn, to be exact. Saka first mentioned the unique and ultra-limited cigar on a social media platform back in mid-December, 2017.
This was a very good cigar almost from the start to the finish. It would have scored much higher had the final third been as complex as the previous thirds.
