H. Upmann - The Banker
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Toasting & Light: The cigar toasted and lit well.. At first puff the cigar delivers a bitter taste and light pepper and the pepper lingers on the palate.
Base flavors: Pepper and nothing else.
Draw: Decent draw.
Retrohale: Light pepper
Aroma: Sweet tobacco
Burn / Ash Quality: Horrible burn with flaky ash quality.
Balance of flavors: Throughout the smoke, the cigar had a dominant bitter and pepper profile.
Consistency: The flavor profile remained the same throughout the entire smoke.
General Observations: The smoke is awful, simply put; there wasn’t any complexity in the flavor profile. .
Summary: Overall, I know some will disagree with my review but I was disappointed with this cigar., I would not buy or recommend this cigar, even to a novice smoker..I would give this cigar 1 out of five smokes.
