Legend is that Carl and Herman Upmann, a pair of ambitious German bankers, traveled to Cuba in 1844 with the intention of creating the perfect cigar. The top-secret blend was reserved solely for their most important clients, and was locked in a vault to keep it away from prying eyes. Unfortunately, the bank burned down in the 20s, but luckily enough for you and me, that’s where H. Upmann The Banker comes into play.
Engulfed in a super-dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and filled to the gills with vintage long-filler leaves from Nicaragua and the Dominican, this bold treat is worth writing home about.
The H. Upmann Currency Robusto Cigar is spicy enough to keep you on your toes without being too overwhelming, the blend is medium in body with a creamy texture and features solid, earthy notes. It’s the perfect choice for your afternoon smoke, or for anyone who appreciates a well-made, intensely satisfying Cuban-esque premium handmade with a bit of history behind it.
H. Upmann Currency Robusto cigars are 5 1/2 inches with a ring gauge of 48 and come packed 15 to a box. If you are looking for a Classic cigar with genuine Cuban taste, H. Upmann cigars are for you and Cuban Crafters has them available for you to enjoy.

This Upmann Robusto cigar is a mild bodied experience that draws very well and has a satisfying aroma to it. It lasts around 40 minutes and isn't overpowering at all. The texture is smooth and complements a red wine / cognac wonderfully well. Worth buying and trying!
