Review: Habanos H Upmann Connoisseur 1 Robusto

             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.

The Hermoso No.4 is actually a corona larga/gordo in cuban cigar factories, and outside the US. Very nice review, I'm also really liking Upmann's from 2012, they are smoking real nice.

In regard to the ring being 48 as opposed to 50 and a smidget shorter, yes.  But pretty much the whole world considers this a robusto, along with Choix, Famosos, etc...
