As old as the Cuban Missile Crisis, this substantial warhead is another official secret closely guarded by an insider's circle, while it's matching Montecristo is more widely-known. Smoky textures, roasted and toasted, combine with a sunburnt sweetness in this highly-regarded cigar. Great value for money, when you can get it. Here's your opportunity. Scoring an impressive 94-rating, Cigar Aficionado said in their review,
"if Cuba's best-known torpedo is the Montecristo No. 2, perhaps the country's best-kept secret is the H. Upmann No. 2. An insider's cigar, the H. Upmann No. 2 is a carbon copy of the ubiquitous Monte, sharing the same stately appearance, with its proud, pointed head and substantial 52 ring gauge. Cuba makes fewer H. Upmanns than Montecristos, so the Upmann is a harder find, but well worth the search, with a solid core of earthy flavour, nuts and coffee beans. These are hearty smokes, and for the past three years they have performed consistently well in our blind tastings." Also check out the reviews by the people here.
