overview

A tribute to the banker who started it all.

During the 1840s, Herman Upmann traveled to Cuba with the express mission of crafting a cigar fit to distribute to his most prestigious banking clients. Unfortunately, the resulting blend of this journey was lost to a bank fire in the 1920s. Now rediscovered and re-blended to replicate the original as closely as possible by using all Cuban-seed tobaccos, H. Upmann The Banker is reminiscent of old style cigars.

The Banker is medium to full-bodied and includes moments of bold spice and a pleasant creaminess. It is comprised of a dark and oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Jalapa binder, and a vintage blend of long-fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican. Earthy undertones are met with a distinct toastiness, and the construction is impeccable. One taste and it's easy to see why this particular selection made its way through the leagues of the elite.

Expert Picks: Winter Winners

Here's a cigar worth investing in! The Banker is medium to full-bodied and, just like the stock market, alternates between some intense moments and periods of smooth stability. This balance between bold spices and pleasant, creamy nuances makes The Banker a blend that never loses its value in your regular rotation.

I hated this cigar; seriously hated it after trying it for the first time. And I even like the folks who make it and the packaging of the cigar. You’d think some of that would have swayed me subconsciously but it didn’t. I swore to never try this again…until I ran into a meeting where The Beard and our boss were puffing away on them. I was shocked. These two were talking about how great these things were. So much for not trying one of these again. Time to pick up a 5-pack and give it a test…

As soon as I fired it up, that familiar overwhelming spice and sharpness hit me. This is what caused me to put it down the first time. And don’t get me wrong, I love a powerhouse cigar but this just seems unbalanced. This time, I had to power through though. Amazingly, the spice subsides gradually and is gone after the first half inch replaced by rich notes of coffee and earth. The Banker then goes through another shift offering spicy and smoky notes. Overall, way more complexity than I expected. One thing I noticed is that when you puff too fast on this, the cigar quickly becomes unbalanced which I found was my error the first time. If you take your time with H. Upmann’s The Banker, you’ll find your investment will certainly pay off.
