Nice burn, decent smoke, but very thin on flavor.

"nice, enjoyable smoke"
I bought a 5 pack of these H Upmann's and have been quite pleased. They light up easily, burn consistently, nice puffy smoke and a good flavor. I'd buy them again.

"Good smoke bad wrapper"
Smoke tasted great! Nice and smooth. About a third through the wrapper started cracking. I thought maybe my humidor was running low. Nope and all my other cigar were fine. If it wasn't that I would say this could be a regular smoke for me. I have another one from a sampler pack. Will write again and see if that one is better.

Opened a box of 10, smoked two, no humidor time, simply magificent. This stick speaks The Language Of The Good Cigar.

"My goto smoke"
The H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon Belicoso has become my #1 goto cigar when I have time for a full hour or more of cigar-bliss enjoyment. When I first got these I noted that the appearance, construction and burn was equal with any premiums that I have ever had. The slightly toothy cameroon wrapper is protected by a cedar sleeve which is not my favorite but warranted with this delicate wrapper leaf. Fresh off the truck the draw was a bit tight, but the burn was like a razor edge, perfect as if it had months of age in my humidor. Two months of age has corrected the draw, and these are now as perfect a cigar as I can imagine.
Flavor wise, these deliver perfect, woodsy, very earthy and mildly cedary smoke. They are more medium than mild, and can deliver a tiny bit of a nicotine kick. Midway through the smoke I find they develop a chocolaty, mocha flavor that holds through to the end. The finish is sweet, kind of like nutella on toast.
All in all these are a real bargain for someone who wants a true premium cigar from an old, established name and has time for a full sized smoke.

"Good Smoke With a Great Finish"
I have had these before and have always enjoyed them. The one I had today sat in my humidor for a while and was calling my name. I would call this a medium strength cigar with a full bodied finish. It was this finish that makes you heavily anticipate the next puff; very flavorful. I will no longer by these in singles or in five packs; boxes from now on.
