Cigar Strength: Medium - Full-Bodied
Herman Upmann moved to Cuba to open a branch for his family bank, which rapidly became one of the most successful in the country partly due to his sharp mind for business and exquisite manners with clients.
In 1844, he discovered his passion for tobacco, and decided to take a leap of faith and create his own cigar brand along with his brother August.
Almost two centuries after, H. Upmann honors one of its founders with Herman’s Batch, inspired by its namesake’s elegant, sybarite and distinctive personality.
Herman’s Batch is covered in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper aged for 4 years that has gone through a double fermentation process, providing a fuller flavor and more complex taste. The binder is Dominican, and the filler is a well-balanced and elegant combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos from Condega and Esteli– the latter grown in high altitude, providing the blend with very rich and distinct characteristics. Each cigar is gracefully capped with an elegant pigtail.
