H. Upmann Robusto

Cigar Mission #35

My name is Agent 15 a.k.a The Boss. My mission was to review the H. Upmann Robusto. As leader of The Cigar Spy agency I promise to respect the A.S.H.E.S. code of honor. This is my cigar mission report.

Target Name:

H. Upmann Robusto

Target Vitals:

Wrapper: Cuba
Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba
Vitola: Robusto
Year: 2007

Background Info:

This cigar is not a regular release, it can only be found in the H. Upmann travel humidor that was released in 2007. It’s a great looking travel humidor and comes with six robustos inside. If you are looking for a six-cigar robusto travel humidor that looks incredibly sexy, this is a no brainer.

Mission Notes:

It was a cloudy day with plenty of rain in the morning. As soon as it stopped raining I pulled out the mission folder and went right to work. The temperature was perfect for my cigar spy duties, not to cold, and not to hot, it was what I like to call “chilly-warm.” It’s not exactly warm, but it’s not cold neither, it’s the perfect comfort and it makes me happy just like my “sockies.”

Enough about my socks, let’s talk about the mission. The H. Upmann Robusto started off with a lemony nutty flavor. On the after taste I picked up some soft white pepper and dry fruit flavors that paired very well with the overall profile. Yummy! Very enjoyable!

I’d say this cigar is Medium-to-Full body, with an amazing smoothness, leaving the palate fresh and ready for the next smoke. (haha, great excuse to smoke another one) The quality was outstanding.

Final Statement:

H. Upmann never disappoints, it always delivers a great smoke. I must say, this was an excellent mission and completed with happy memories. Goodbye clouds! This little robusto has brought plenty of sunshine my way!

    Hi, is this a totally different blend than the H.Upmann Connoisseur No.1? Are these still available?
    Take care and many thanks.

  2. Agent 15 Says:

    Hey,

    Yes they are. I would say it’s a little-tiny bit milder than the Conn No. 1.

    I’m going to try and see if i review that one next, thanks man!

    Nicely done Agent 15. We’ll have to speak sometime about who you shook down to get this high-quality target.

    Keep up the great work.

    Great Review. There are some days where I wish I was you with your seemingly neverending stash of fine cigars.

    Also thanks for the shout out in the Cigarfest video. Second one this week between you and Walt. Nice!

    Very nice looking unit but the cost is way to much for a simple 6 cigar unit with the Upmann name on it. It tips the scales at well over $200, every time I happen to see it at on-line Cuban website. Great review though!

  11. Agent 15 Says:

    B, your welcome man, it was a pleasure meeting you! Im pretty sure it wont be the last time we hang.
