I bought the 1844 Reserve Belicoso because for two reasons: they were on sale box of 20 for $110.99 including shipping , and the reviews looked good. My regular, go-to cigars are Fuente Cuban Belicoso, Queen B or anything by Pepin/Tatuaje, EP Carrillo, Padron. The 1844 Reserve is a decent cigar, but not the kind of cigar I like to smoke. Construction and draw are good, and produces good volume of smoke. But taste wise this is not a complex or memorable smoke. Perhaps with aging they might pick up some flavor. But even at the sale price I purchased these at, still not my kind of cigar. Not a bad smoke, just a little short on flavor for my tastes.
Very disappointed, always thought by advertising and pricing Upton was a quality Cigar. I have tried four of thes sticks and given two away. They are a very tight draw and every time I put it down for ten seconds it goes out. If that isn?t enough, you need a blowtorch to relight it! Not much at writing bad reviews, it deserves it!, Jack
I love everything about this cigar. The draw, the awesome flavor, and the consistent burn, this is a good cigar. When I m driving on the road, it s me, a good H. Upmann, and my destination!
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.
H, Upmann does it again.
This cigar has a great flavor. Very excellent smoke
By far my favorite smoke When I have time to relaxTaste, appearance, burn, smellClassic
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!
Very good smoke
Just got this one in a sample bunch. A very pleasent smoke. Good flavor and draw. I plan to keep a bunch of these in my humidor. Goes great with Johny Walker Red Label!
