Before lighting up
A mild smelling wrapper and foot. Faint aroma of straw and tobacco.
The Upmann Connoisseur No 1 burns evenly with a perfect draw.
Terrific effort with the flavor. The beginning is mostly woody, deep and intense.
In the second third, light pepper dominates with a sleek undertone.
Finally, the last third, even more flavors appear, including espresso and chocolate. Meanwhile, the spiciness fades away and the last third settles down in a perfect combination of aromas and spices.
With some age, this Connoisseur No 1 has simple elegant flavors. Nuts, clean smooth tobacco. Flawless and rich. You may not have the patience but it's worth the wait.

King of the Hermosos
- Somewhat easy to find aged boxes. Typical Upmann profile, but the thicker ring gauge allows more creamy notes that shine in the second third. Must buy!
- Strong coffee notes, great smoke
Last year this stick was grassy bland & BLAH......Yesterday, now with 3 years of aging....delish. The grassiness has matured to more of a fresh hay taste. The bitterness and dryness is gone. Patience pays off with this stick!

A Great Anytime Cigar
The H.Upmann Connoisseur No.1 is a true Habano that can easily please even those that insist they would not enjoy a smaller size cigar. This cigar could easily take on that challenge and win over even the most ardent non-believers.
Blessed with the unmistakable taste of Cuban tobacco, this cigar lights easily and keeps an even burn during its entire duration. Its ash remains attractively intact, due to the solid construction of the body and the even roll.
The captivating aromas force the unsuspecting smoker into a realm of complete focus on nothing else but its aromatic charm. It possesses you for the ensuing 45 minutes of uncompromising enjoyment.
It falls just short of being a five star cigar due to a slightly lighter style that most smokers of Habanos have come to expect. Personally, I relish this slight lightness and have come to consider cigars such as this as great because of their portability and their deftness in smoking anytime.
My recommendation is to seek this cigar out and perhaps even making it a permanent selection in your humidor.
