H Upmann The Banker
The Pearl of the Antilles was good to the Upmanns, at least financially. The weather was too much for Herman, though, and he eventually went home to Germany, leaving the company in the hands of his nephew.
One of their successes was a premium cigar blend that they were known for. This one was kept in the vault and dispensed to “their most important clients.” Given that this was 170 years ago, that exact blend is lost to time. The lineage, however, is preserved in H. Upmann The Banker cigars, crafted to evoke the legendary smoke that was jealously guarded and saved for VIPs.
H. Upmann The Banker cigars feature a savory Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, holding in a Nicaraguan binder and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-filler tobacco. This classic combination offers yet another flavor profile that calls to mind the great cigars of yesteryear. Supported by an unmistakable cedar note, The Banker develops into coffee and herbal aromas that will have you kicking back to count your money and reflect on your success.
Herman Upmann is long gone, but his spirit of adventure and entrepreneurship is alive and well, inspiring us to take chances and make our own mark on the world.
