Herman Upmann was a banker from Germany who so loved Cuban cigars that he moved to Havana in 1844 and set up as both banker and cigar maker. His bank closed in the early 1920’s but his cigars live on as a fine example of an elegant,light to medium flavoured Habano.
H. Upmann’s blend is composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone.
In the third of four planned releases that comprise the new Linea Retro from Habanos and, with H. Upmann’s signature light-to-medium blend, it is the lightest of the series to date. All four releases are Mareva size cigars (5 1/8” x42) presented in retro tins of five, in a style much in fashion during the 1970’s. Each pack is subtly different and the H. Upmann Regalias tin has a removeable 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.
