H Upmann 1844 Special Edition Barbier
This isn’t to say that the brand is boring, of course. Routinely high marks for Nicaraguan and Dominican blends keep it in the conversation with the best of the best. And the Cuban No. 2 is an absolute scorcher that just was rewarded with an unthinkable 98-point rating as it took down Cigar Aficionado's #1 Cigar of the Year.
But this one mixes things up. Literally.
The wrapper is a barber pole swirl of Ecuadorian Connecticut and Ecuadorian Sumatra tobacco, alternating natural light brown leaf with Maduro darkness. Peel that back to find an exotic Javanese binder (bet you didn’t see that coming!). This holds a mix of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and broadleaf long-filler tobaccos.
You’re going to get many different layers of complex flavor that shift and evolve as the burn line creeps from foot to head. Wood, cocoa, herbs, and spices are all part of the experience. This smoke circumnavigates the globe, trading goods from port to port, and simply invites you on the journey.
It may be named after the humble barber, but this smoke from H. Upmann is exactly what special editions were made for. Pick this up for one of the more interesting smokes you’ll have this year.
