Gummi, you are right about the soda, think the sugar brings more flavor profile out. This is quickly becoming one of my go-to cigars.

La Aroma de Cuba - Mi Amor
The toro pictured (6" x 60) is a bit of a mouthful, so the Belicoso (5.5" x 54) is looking box-worthy.

I never dip mine in anything, don't see the need with a premium cigar.



The so called "150 count" humidor maxed out at about 115, but many are 50-60 ring so it makes sense.

Funny you post this just now...

I've been an Upmann fan for years, but never had that one. My Dad hit me up about them earlier today. I think he is gonna order a box.

So, how was it? Your complete impression? (I need to know whether I should charge him "rent" for storing them in my humidor!)

Default What cigar...

Its the cigar Ive enjoyed the most after Cohoba Red Dots, which are my favorite.

It was a very mellow, medium stick. It didnt have much spice to it. It burned very well. Ill be buying a box once my humi comes in.

Gunmi, are there any Upmanns you would recommend to try?

Enjoying an unlabeled Cuban I've been storing since '06 with some cheap champagne. Nothing better while reloading mags. Wife went from not wanting me to make her smell like smoke to gimmeapuffadat when she realized it was a Cuban. Love that woman.

EDIT: here's the photo finally. What's up with Tappa talk tonight? It's giving me some crap about updating in order to post photos, but there's no update available in the store.

Thanks for your impressions!

Upmann makes one of the very best Cameroons on the market, IMO. It was the first one I got really excited about when I first started smoking cigars many years ago. Now it is called the Vintage Cameroon, and they are still darn good.

The Legacy is good, I am fond of the Sumatra wrapper, it makes for some great taste experiences.

I've never had the Banker, so no feed back on that one.

If you get the chance, pick up another one or two, write the date of purchase on the cello, and stick it in the bottom of your humidor. Pull it out in a year, and see if your experience is the same.

The natural Cohiba Red Dot is also a Cameroon cigar. The XV (also a "red dot" is a Sumatra wrapper) a little fuller flavor.

The cat bandit posted up my take for me because crapatalk doesn't like me. I got a box of the new CAO Columbia's in the Magdalena (Torpedo) shape. Along with a sampler pack of diesels (unlimited, unlimited Maduro, unholy cocktail, and the hair of the dog). Never had any of these diesels but the couple I've had we're phenomenal

Can you guys suggest a decent budget minded humidor? I'd like to keep 10-15 cigars on hand. I smoke one every two weeks or so.

It was great. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and it lived up to all the hype that jake put on it. Also considering that it is following a run of 3 of my favorite 4 cigars that I've ever had. I definitely will be investing in a box or two to put into deep storage.

I would probably just use a Tupperware container and boveda packs.
