H. Upman

H. Upmann is one of the best-known and oldest names in cigars. Founded in Cuba in 1844, this popular version, now produced in the Dominican Republic is a best seller.


H. Upmann cigars are known for being extremely dependable and consistent. Produced and distributed by Altadis U.S.A., makers of such premium brands as Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo, each H. Upmann undergoes rigorous quality control to ensure each cigar sent to retail shelves will have a great burn, flavor, and draw perfectly every time.


H. Upmann is medium-bodied due to its Piloto Cubano, Cuban-seed Dominican filler. These seeds have locked in the essence and history that have made Cuban cigars so famous, very appropriate for a cigar name with a rich history and foundation in Old Havana. The cigar is finished with an Indonesian wrapper that provides a sweet and silky finish with a truly enticing aroma. Taste a piece of cigar history with H. Upmann.

Romeo y Julieta

Romeo y Julieta is an iconic cigar named after a literary favorite. The 1875 cigar’s beautiful Indonesian Shade Grown TBN wrapper surrounds a classic Dominican binder and a blend of Dominican long fillers that burn with a characteristic white ash, providing a smooth, mellow taste with medium body. It’s a premium cigar with a storybook ending.


They say you can’t improve on a legend, but don’t tell that to legendary cigar master José Seijas. He found the highest-grade Connecticut Shade wrapper and combined it with the finest Dominican binder and filler to create a masterpiece of a cigar that would bear the most iconic cigar band in the world. The result – an unforgettable smoking experience truly worthy of its name.


Given the combination of finest wrapper, binder, and filler, and this one of a kind blend, the Montecristo Classic stands out as a complex and flavorful smoke on the milder side with bountiful taste notes and an easy draw.


The Cohiba Red Dot cigar remains peerless in defining luxury premium-cigar enjoyment. The process of enjoying a premium Cohiba Red Dot cigar is like a ritual that requires quality time and specific steps that promise the finest smoking experience. The Red Dot Ritual commences with THE SELECTION of the Cohiba cigar, THE CLIP to the THE LIGHT, and finally culminates with THE SMOKE of the cigar.


The Selection

The selection is the first step in your journey to completing the Ritual. With the wrapper as the road map to the selection process, followed by the aroma, the quality of construction and a host of other variables; the cigar says multitudes about the individual that you are or hope to be. The selection is the most important step; you are what you smoke.


The Clip

The clip comes in many variations, but one thing must be consistent with each cut; an even and steady hand leads to the perfect draw and the best experience. The cut enables you to put your distinct stamp on the Ritual.


The Light

The light is the step where the tools are of the utmost importance. A confident, natural flame is the only way to derive the essence of the cigar. A combination of a 45-degree angle and the apex of the flame deliver a uniform burn. Slow and steady always wins!


The Smoke

The smoke is the reward for your due diligence. The first puff clears your mind of all worries and prepares you to take on the world with a renewed perspective. Your connection to the artisanship of the master roller is complete. This is the culmination of the Ritual. A gift directly from the gods, hold your head high, you’ve earned it.
