In 1843, a German banker named Hermann Upmann moved to Havana, Cuba to open an import/export business for a German firm that bought and sold tobaccos. In 1844, he purchased a small local cigar factory, and soon after the 1st H. Upmann cigar was born. Hermann could never have imagined that his little endeavor would become one of the world’s best known cigar brands. He was known for his innovation in the tobacco business and is credited with being the 1st cigar maker to package his cigars in cedar boxes. Honoring that commitment to innovation is what Altadis’ Grupo de Maestros is all about. Their guiding principle is to push the boundaries of a brand, while honoring the traditions and heritage of the brand’s past. It’s no surprise the group turned to AJ Fernandez to create his version of this famed brand.
The H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage has been extra aged with a triple fermented Mata Fina wrapper. aged two years after it was rolled to deliver a medium to full-bodied smoke with rich notes of chocolate, espresso and some sweet spice
