The 2015 Edicion Regional Cuba
Diplomaticos Excelencia were a limited release – 7000 boxes of 10.
This robusto is very well constructed,
with a rich and full flavour. It displays notes of honey and toasted
nuts and really surprisingly full aromas of cedar. An excellent
H. Upmann has released the Robusto size for the first time in it's range. These Robustos from H.Upmann will only be available in this presentation, this is a great opportunity for those who are devoted to the delightful aroma and delicate flavour of this great brand.
Light-weight, practical and stylish, this compact humidor comes covered in genuine leather with the H. Upmann logo iron-stamped on the side. A great option for travellers who don’t want to leave their smokes at home, but to keep them in perfect condition, ready to be enjoyed at anytime.
Your cigars are kept safe, protected against humidity, temperature changes and sudden movements. The lower zipper grants access to the humidifier located at the base, so the sponge can be moistened without affecting the cigars which are seated securely in the wooden mould.
The leaves from the 2010 harvest that
make up the Upmann No. 2 Reserva have been selected
by the H. Upmann factory under the supervision of
the Instituto de Investigaciones del Tabaco -Tobacco Research
The blend has been selected by expert
Ligadores -Master Blenders- and evaluated by more than 50
expert catadores -tasters- in joint tastings organised by the
Instituto del Tabaco -Tobacco Institute-. These tasters include
members of the Comisión Nacional de Degustación -National
Tasting Commission- from the most prestigious factories in Cuba and
experts from the Cuban Industry and Habanos s.a., with all of the
conditions of the proposed blends being assessed.
The tripa -filler- and capote -binder- leaves ( Volado , Seco and
Ligero ), and also the capa -wrapper- leaves, that are used in the
blend for this first Reserva, have been subjected to a long and
painstaking three-year ageing process.
These Habanos are Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga
-Totally hand made with Long Filler, with tobacco leaves (capa
-wrapper-, capote -binder- and tripa -filler-) from 2010 harvest of
the best vegas -fields- in the tobacco world, Vuelta Abajo (D.O.P.) ,
