Over 170 years ago, the Upmann brothers crafted a top-secret, ultra-premium blend to impress their elite banking clients. Tragically the recipe was lost in a fire, but H. Upmann Cigars invested years recreating and perfecting an almost exact replica of the luxurious, original blend. An oily, mocha colored Ecuadorian Habano wrapper swaddles a select Nicaraguan binder. Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos were chosen for the filler to complement the flavor profile. The Banker is medium to full in strength and teeming with complex, well-balanced aromas. Cigar enthusiasts will detect notes of red pepper, espresso, leather and dried fig. Upon retro-hale, hints of cedar and creamy nougat develop, while drenching the tongue in a silky texture. The Banker is a top-notch cigar that warrants a spot in every connoisseur’s humidor.
