Habanos have produced many different Cuban cigars over the years, but some have stood out and marked smoking history. The Classic Cuban cigars must be sampled by anyone who calls themselves an Aficionado
The history of this brand began around 1840 when Herman Upmann, a banker and cigar aficionado invested in a cigar factory which served dually as a bank and cigar business. Following the failure of both companies in 1922, a British firm by the name of J. Frankau & Co. took over the factory until 1935 when it was sold to the Menendez y García Company, so was the legend reborn. Characteristically, H. Upmanns are mild to medium-bodied cigars great for the beginner's palate. Their larger sizes are among the most coveted and sought after cigars in the world. A promising smooth, subtle and mild to medium smoke. All Aficionados find their pleasure in this brand.
Since 2000 and the first 2000 Millennium Jar, Habanos have released every year 3 to 5 Edicion Limitada cigars for their Premium brands with specifically developed blends, rolled with Maduro tobacco leaves aged for two years prior to being used. This series has become one of Habanos's most collectible lines.
Habanos S.A. introduced the Regional Production Series in 2005. This series is made up of special production cigars made exclusively for regional markets. Easy to recognize with red and silver second band and the name of the Region for which they are destined, these productions are becoming very collectible.
