H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1

The H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1 is probably one of the most forgotten robustos in all the lines from Cuba.  It’s in a very crowded group with the likes of the Cohiba robusto, Partagas Serie D No. 4, Montecristo Edmundo, Ramon Allones Specially Selected, etc.  It’s a shame because this cigar is one of the best in the bunch.  It doesn’t require much down time to be ready to smoke either which is great since you don’t have a wait too long to enjoy them.  This box was from 2014 and still delivered on the flavors.  I got toasted nuts, honey sweetness, cinnamon and a slight creaminess.  The cigar burned well and didn’t require any touch ups.  Overall, it was a very good cigar, even at such a young age.  I don’t think you would be disappointed if you smoke these young, but you will be well rewarded it you give them some time to age.
