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.0 0
One Light, one burn, no tunneling, wonderful smooth flavor and close to mild. No wrapper tear and nice draw for 60 minutes. deacon0 0
Nice burn, decent smoke, but very thin on flavor.1 0
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.1 0
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.0 0
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.1 0
