The Banker by H. Upmann

Celebrate the richest moments of life with “The Banker” by H. Upmann. This exciting, bold cigar boasts an earthy and toasty smoking experience and will begin shipping its new Basis Point No. 2 5(2 x 6 1/8) size in late August 2015.

German bankers Carl and Henry Upmann traveled to Cuba to craft an exceptionally unique cigar in 1844. They locked it in the vaults and gave it to their most important clients. Over 170 years ago, Altadis U.S.A. went to great lengths to recreate this original blend with “The Banker.”

Using a dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder from the Jalapa region, and aged Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers, The Banker is rich and robust with notes of coffee and spices.

With the addition of the new Basis Point No. 2 Belicoso (52 x 6 1/8), “The Banker” by H. Upmann will now be available in four sizes including: Currency (48 x 5 1/2), Annuity (52 x 6) and Arbitrage (56 x 7).

Priced at $8.30, the cigar is price protected and available in space-saving and affordable 15 – cigar - count boxes. The new, rich, robust, and slightly spicy.

H. Upmann is sure to please even the most demanding cigar aficionados.
