Discount H. Upmann Cigars Online for Sale

The name recalls distinguished quality and the finest flavor of old Havana premium cigars.

For more than a century and a half, Upmann has come readily to the lips of cigar connoisseurs. Today, the legend lives on in the rich, smooth satisfaction of handmade cigars that are unmistakably H. Upmann.

A distinctive cigar begins with fine tobacco. Tobacco that is as much a result of experience and knowledge as soil and sun. Today's H. Upmann is a premium blend of long filler and natural binder, hand-wrapped in the finest quality Indonesian shade grown tobacco.

As famous a brand as there is in the world of cigars, the H. Upmann brand dates back to 1844, when Herman Upmann, a German banker, began using specially imprinted boxes of cigars as promotional items for his banking firm. The combination proved successful, so the H. Upmann brand was born and continues to this day.

The success of this brand was buoyed by the award of seven gold medals in seven international exhibitions between 1862 and 1893; these awards still adorn the lithographed interior of the box today.  The brand was sold to the British firm of J. Frankau in 1922 and finally in 1935 to Menendez, Garcia & Cia. prior to nationalization, continues today in the H. Upmann factory, now known as Jose Marti.

The famous request of President John F. Kennedy to his press secretary, Pierre Salinger, to obtain cigars on the evening prior to the declaration of the American trade embargo in 1961, was for Petit Upmanns.

The quality is immediately apparent in the silky feel and superb craftsmanship. The aroma is inviting and mellow. The taste is full-bodied, yet smooth and mild.  It's what the legend is made of, known all over as the smoking pleasure that is uniquely H. Upmann.
