H. Upmann The Banker Annuity Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a double band and full length sleeve. The first top band and foot band come off with the sleeve showing a deep milk chocolate wrapper with a soft oily feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich oily leather aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with good rich medium-full bodied smoke output of a silky smooth rich earth and leather with a long smooth finish of the same. The first third burns perfectly keeping a rich combo of flavors including a creamy earth, leather, apricot sweetness and a slight zing but no pepper or spice. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 45 minutes the whole stick has gone very squishy but with a perfect burn and construction. Flavors drop the leather and most of the sweetness, pushing to a deeper earth and tobacco core and a big smooth earth and pepper finish. Ending at 1:20 the last third showed no further changes. Thank you to Altadis for providing this for review!

    Bryan, Thank You for the good review as always, when you mentioned that you give out lots of cigars even though I am in Canada I have a US address Would sell some of your Cigars that you have?

    Is that first photo a sampler box of 3? I haven’t seen them in that format anywhere. How would one acquire that?

    • They are for bloggers/media, just for samples, the the best of my knowledge.

    On a different subject have you been seeing email concerning FDA wanting to change application for Cigar companies that product only made sense 2007 and wanting companies to go through extensive application claiming these are new Cigar. Is there truth to this regulation.
    Anyone else in the form getting the same email.

    • The FDA pending regulations have been all over the news for months. Other sites like Halfwheel have kept up on all the info.
