Quick Overview

The H.Upmann No.2 is one of Cuba's most popular vitola, a delicious medium Pyramid, 6’1” (156mm) long, of 52 ring gauge, and comes in a 25 cigars box. It is right up there with the Montecristo No.2. However the flavors are very recognizable as H.Upmann, but the pointy shape of this cigar gives a smoke that is unique in this brand. Very clean taste, no harshness, and medium body give for a perfectly rounded smoke. A cigar that will become even more popular with time. A Pre-1960 release.

H.Upmann No.2 - 25 cigars [6.1 x 52]

Many compare the H.Upmann No. 2 to the Montecristo No. 2, they are similar in terms of strength, and it is hard to say which one is the stronger of the two.

  • • This cigar can hold its own against a Montecristo No. 2 or the Bolivar Belicosos Finos.
  • • A great example of how fantastic a great Habanos pyramid can be.

In order to enjoy the full potential of the H. Upmann No. 2, it should be aged for 5 to 8 years, as with the H. Upmann No. 1.

Diameter: 20.64mm

Ring gauge: 52

Shape: Pyramid

Appearance:

It has a gorgeous oily and marbled wrapper.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

The wrapper has some notes of leather and wood. The foot exhibits aromas of spice, espresso, wood and hay.

Burn/ Draw

The H.Upmann No.2 performs wonderfully, and it is a classic example that Cuba produces cigars with great construction. The draw is fantastic. The ash holds on to the cigar firmly and produces a lovely dark gray ash. The burn is razor sharp.

Initial third:

The cigar begins with some light spice, some pu-erh tea, like peat, some more wood and oak and coffee. It also delivers some creaminess.

Middle third:

The flavors in the second third really pick up, and it is here that it picks up a little more chocolate and pepper notes. There still exists some great tea, leather and oak notes to the cigar, and it has great finish of coffee and cream which are oh so enjoyable. The strength of the cigar remains at the medium level in which it was in the beginning.

Final third:

In the final third of the cigar shows a lot of flavors in great harmony. It is packed with cocoa, still the tea flavor, being very pleasant. It shows leather & spice which is wonderful. The finish tastes like coffee and cream. The cigar stays cool all the way to the end and on the last puff the cigar is still as flavorful as it had been and is still medium in body.

In summary, the flavors and aromas are first class all the way. What will really hit your taste buds are the chocolate and vanilla with the fantastic musky taste.

Smoking time:

60 - 90 Minutes

Great smoke for the price , 5/25/2017
By Bill
This is not my first rodeo with this cigar so I know exactly what to expect. A little stronger than some others. I find they smoke better at a bit lower humidity 60-65%.
Nice alternative to monte #2 , 9/17/2015
By Michael
I get that these are in high demand and hard to roll, but 2/4 out of the box I've already tried have been tightly rolled. Not so tight that they were un-smokeable, but tight enough that it was not ideal. On the ones that are rolled properly the flavors are great. I get lighter notes of tea, wood, and earth out of this cigar which are very pleasant.
The other Pyramide , 4/3/2015

This vitola among the best, not only from Upmann, is for sure the kind of chanllenger which need the most well known perfecto of the world since ever : the Montécristo n° II
To be fair, if this one is certainly the strongest with heaviest aromas, the Upmann n° II has to be the purest, with very fine tobacco leaves and decidedly the true signature of what should be and ever was the H. Upmann taste.
Aging potential is rather tremendous with a liga increasing its power.
You way also find an nother similar cigar, typical for the Upmann ligada, with the Magnum 50.

Decent cigar and great format this Pyramid. Great aroma but not enough of a body in the smoke to get me excited. Good for summer and fall and not to be rushed.
Nice cigar , 2/5/2015
By Christopher
First time trying this cigar. Burn was a little uneven with one. It had a cedar, leathery flavor. I'm going to let them age in the humidor for a little while. Overall, it was a nice smoke that I think will improve with time.
