Quick Smoke: H. Upmann Connoisseur Robusto No. 40

8 Jul 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

From the fine brown Connecticut wrapper to the classic, understated band, this cigar looks inviting. Unfortunately, the invitation isn’t followed by a pleasant visit. Not that it was unpleasant; it was just bland and boring. The five inch by 50 ring gauge stick began with a little spice, but that quickly dissipated and was replaced by virtually nothing. For what is often touted as the top of H. Upmann’s seemingly endless brand extensions, this Dominican was a major disappointment.

Verdict = Sell.
