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