H. Upmann Sir Winston

H. Upmann Sir Winston

H. Upmann Sir Winston 1600 900 Giuseppe Mitolo

H. Upmann’s Sir Winston is one of the few Julieta n. 2 that remained in production in the Habanos SA portfolio. However, it is the only one to be packaged in the 25-count Boite Nature boxes. For these and for its renowned qualities it is considered a Cuban benchmark in cigar production.

The wrapper is of a shiny Colorado tone, with reddish reflections. To the touch, it is particularly smooth with slightly accentuated veins. Construction and filling are great. The draw is slightly tight.

H. Upmann Sir Winston

H. Upmann Sir Winston: a good scent of wood, followed by more nuanced notes of earth and spices reach the nose.

H. Upmann Sir Winston

Once lit, it is striking that a cigar of this format is sweet, with a less marked sapidity. The flavors that develop in the first third are wood and honey, but also a spicy nuance. Strength is medium – light (2/5).

In the central section, the sweet flavor even with the sapidity. Flavor-wise, the cigar, while retaining the honey note of the previous third, evolves towards notes of walnut and coffee. There is a nuance of leather present in some puffs as well. Strength increases, becoming medium (3/5).

In the last third, the flavors are expressed on notes of honey, earth, and almond. A hint of walnut makes its way through in the last few puffs. Strength remains unchanged (3/5).

Ultimately, the expectations from the cold draw are positively gratified by this true masterpiece of Cuban production. The H. Upmann Sir Winston strikes for its opulence in flavor, paired with a strength level that is just right. It is a cigar that shows itself to be widely enjoyable already after two years of aging, but which will show all its potential if it is allowed the right rest time in the humidor.
