The H. Upmann Magnum 50 Cigar was presented at the Festival del Habano in 2008 and has become a firm Cuban cigar favourite amongst aficionados worldwide.
Featuring a Magnum 50 vitola - it measures at 160mm by a 50 ring gauge. It's packed with specially selected tobacco leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba.
You can expect a light-medium flavour from this smoke - delivering woody notes with hints of citrus here and there.
|Flavour:||Light to Medium|
|Vitola de galera:||Magnum 50|
This company is excellent and their cigars have been first rate
On February 6th, 1962 – the night before President Kennedy signed the executive order broadening the United States’ restrictions on trade with Cuba – JFK sent his Press Secretary, Pierre Salinger, out to buy every single box of H. Upmann cigars he could find in the Washington, D.C. area! According to the article, “10 Cubans to Collect and Smoke Now,” the re-introduction of the previously limited edition (2005) Magnum 50 “is like welcoming back an old friend.” The Magnum 50 is also listed as one of the “Top 15 Cubans to Have in Your Humidor,” one of the “9 Cuban Brands You Need in Your Life,” and one of the “7 Cubans You’ll Want When the Embargo Ends.” Two of those articles also state that one should age the Magnum 50 from 10-15 years for a “cleaner, stronger taste” … “which brings out the flavors more.” However, with its super robusto size, this is a nightly smoke for me on my front porch. At any given time, I have at least one box in my Whynter 1.8 cu.ft. humidor – I just can’t get one of those boxes to stay put for a decade!!!
There is no mistaking a cuban cigar and this H Upmann is one of the best!
Worthy every penny. Delivery as very quick...and the product is outstanding. I could not be happier.
