As with the popular 2013 release of the H. Upmann Connoisseur A, the Connoisseur B is exclusively available to La Casa del Habano shops and Havana Cigar Specialists. Measuring5 7/8” (150mm) x 54 ring gauge this new offering shares its dimensions with theMontecristo Open Eagle, a size known as a Geniales in the factories of Cuba.
This latest release is part of the classic H. Upmann portfolio and, along with the Magnum 54, becomes one of the widest vitolas within the range.
The Connoisseur B serves up all of the classic, well-balanced and time-honoured, light to medium bodied taste that has helped make H. Upmann such a favourite among aficionados and novices alike, ever since it was first launched back in 1844.
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.
