H Upmann 1844 Reserve Reviews
Medium-bodied with classic flavors of wood grain and semi-bitter leaf tannins; cookie dough also entered the fray briefly on the second half. I had stored this at 69 + % RH and it didn t like it a bit, as the draw was tight and the wrapper cracked halfway through. Burn was uneven, and way too fast during the first half; lasted me less than 45 minutes til the nub. My guess is they require 3-4 months to settle down. 88+ points
This 1844 reserve Belicoso had been sitting in my humidor for a while now and thought I d give it a try and I am impressed to say the least! Earthy, smooth, toasty cedar and leather flavors are fantastic in this medium body smoke. The best part was it s flawless construction and superb draw! The smoke output and aroma are outstanding, I can t believe this isn t a higher priced cigar... I had purchased due to the 93 rating from CA and it lived up to the bill. If the rest of mine smoke as nice as this first, I ve found myself a real winner!
Have smoked these for several years. Just finished a box and ordered another. Beautiful wrapper, always easy draw, mild herbal flavor. I compare all cigars to this one. As good as a Cuban.
Here's a fine cigar that made CA's top 25 list last year. The blend of the cigar has been changed and for the better. Creamy billows of leather and almonds with a burn your fingers off finish. Rich but not a strong smoke. Just right!
very smooth all the way through. had hints of ground coffee, caramel and almonds. Really enjoyed this smoke, would recommend it to beginners and novices alike. Not spicy at all yet full on flavour. A good "go to" cigar. These will age very well in the humidor. I have tasted the cuban blends of Upmann and this cigar exceeded all my expectations.
I smoked a sampler and had a robust 5/50 size good right down to the nub great flavor and burn ...will buy more..
The entire H. Upmann line gives consistent quality, flavor and aroma. The Reserve Maduro is outstanding and the 1844 line gives an even burn with pleasant woody flavor and aroma---just outstanding!
