Being one of the residing Presidents of the Upmann Slim with the Tilted Brim Fan Club, I am always on the lookout for Upmann smokes that deliver the love. I had always collected the No 2 vitola, the Magnum 46, and several smaller sizes including the Majestic. For some reason, I never got around to trying the Connoisseur 1, even though it had a reputation that was impeccable amongst the Upmann faithful and forum nuts. When I finally grabbed a box from 2011, I was hooked instantly. Specifically, the 2008 run seemed to have a cult following, so I scored one from a good buddy on a trade, and figured I would review it first, then the 2011 another time. This Hermoso No 4 size, or classic robusto if you will, has been around pre-1960, and has a reputation amongst Upmann fans as always containing the vintage Upmann flavors you might find in more expensive vitolas, for a more affordable price.
