H. Upmann 1844 Churchill Cigar Review
This 7×50 stick has been in my humidor about 4 years and used to be a regular smoke for me, I want to see how it has changed since the last time I had one was about the time I put the rest of a box away for aging. It features a dark brown dry smooth wrapper with a few small veins, even slightly spongy pack, double cap and very pungent rich cedar aroma, mainly from sitting in a humidor so long. First light reveals a pretty snug draw with good smoke output, medium-full body flavors of a very rich slightly sweet aged tobacco with a fairly short clean smooth finish. The first third stays steady with a rich, oily smooth aged tobacco and a creamy textured smooth leather with the same through the long finish. The tiny bit of extra smoothness is the only thing different over the years aging that I can detect. 50 minutes in starting the last third everything continues as normal, the ash falls off again in a solid chunk and it’s burning perfectly. Ending at 1:15 the whole stick proved to be the same as I remembered it as far as the flavors and overall experience. It just goes to show you that you have no idea what will happen to any given cigar over extended periods of time, ‘aging’ in a humidor. Just try it for yourself!
