Product Description

Following hot on the heels of the Partagás Capitols released last month, the H. Upmann Regalias has arrived in the UK and is now widely available.

The H. Upmann Regalias is the third of four planned releases that will comprise the new Linea Retro from Habanos and, as it has been made with H. Upmann’s signature light-to-medium blend, it is the lightest in the series to date.

All four releases are Mareva size cigars (5 1/8” x 42) presented in retro tins of five, in a style fashionable during the 1970s.

Each pack is subtly different and the H. Upmann Regalias tin has a removable top, a yellow interior and a curved edge reminiscent of  a hipflask.

Until its discontinuation in 2002, the H. Upmann Regalias was a machine-made cigar not found in the UK. However, it has since been reintroduced as a long-filler handmade cigar and is available for the first time in Britain in this new presentation. It is expected that labelled boxes of 25 cigars will be available in the near future.

H Upmann is the one of the oldest cigar brands still in production today and of the most popular among new smokers or those looking for lighter mid-day smoke. The brand began back in the 1840’s when German bank owner Herman Upmann opened an office in Havana for exporting cigars back to Europe. By 1844 he invested heavily and opened his own factory in the city and both the bank and cigar brand remained highly successful until 1922 the family business went bust. Luckily UK importers J Frankau & Co brought out the company and continued its production and gave the brand more exposure to smokers all over the (diminishing) Empire. Later the brand was sold the Menéndez, García y Cía Co the brains behind the iconic Montecristo brand, who continued production until the revolution when all brand became nationalised.

Over the years H Upmann has been a firm favourite and was the brand of choice for American President J F Kennedy. His love for the brand caused him to send an aide out to buy as many Petit Upmann (Demi Tasse) he could find in Washington before signing the Embargo with the Caribbean island.

H Upmann cigars all have a light and easy going flavour profile of woods, coffee, beans a slight hint of spice. All the flavours you would expect from a Havana cigar, but light enough to be enjoyed by anyone at any time of the day.
