H. Upman the Banker

I have smoked five of these cigars. I have found their case to be very consistent, and the construction good. it starts off very light. then it revolves into a wonderful smoke.

    Hmmm... Almost picked one up at the B&M yesterday, but passed because I've had hit-and-miss experience with H Upman. Glad to hear you've enjoyed them. Might have to double back and pick up a few...

    I've heard they are good but after a h uppman screwed my pallet up for a week I will never try one again! Minus the cc's of course

    after I tried a legacy and the sun grown which both I only got a inch into all I could taste was bitter grass and nasty green tobacco...all the cigars I smoked that week after all tasted like that and I wasn't happy! Had to stop smoking for a bit to clear out the tastes and I guess the memories as well

    I've been enjoying H. Upmann cigars for many years. IMHO, you got a "bad taste in your mouth" for Upmann because they are not known for Legacy and Sun Grown. Those are line extensions that their marketing department should have avoided.

    Try a Connoisseur 50 and tell us what you think.

  • Hm. After some of these reviews I may want to pass on this one. Anyone try Montecristo Media Noche?

    I had the Currency squared size and was really, not impressed. Had some tar form in balls at the cap and I am a very dry smoker. I think they rushed this one, but I can't be sure about that. Also, thought I would add that the Monte Media Noche is one of my favorite maduro sticks on the market. It's very well balanced and chocolatey, and I stuck to the robusto size mostly. JRcigars.com and this site sometimes like to throw them in samplers.
