Grupo de Maestros is a group of cigar-making masters that includes the likes of Rafael Nodal of Aging Room cigars that have come together to offer an innovative, fresh take on premium cigars. For H. Upmann’s 175th Anniversary, the all-star team created the first H. Upmann cigar to wear a Connecticut wrapper: H. Upmann Connecticut by Grupo de Maestros.
The H. Upmann Connecticut Robusto is a star of the line featuring a solidly built 5” x 52 size formed around a mixture of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pilotico filler tobaccos held together by a Dominican binder. The cigar is dressed in an elegant Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed wrapper with a dark Maduro cap for added flair.
The H. Upmann Connecticut Robusto is an aromatic stick with inviting cold draw flavors. Spark up the beauty and let waves of leather, cedar, coffee, earth, and nut flavors wash over your palate. The medium-bodied smoke continues to evolve with bursts of pepper and toast. Sweet orange spice notes sneak into the final third, which is highlighted by a sumptuous creamy undertone.
As a Connecticut-wrapped cigar for the modern smoke, the H. Upmann Connecticut by Grupo de Maestros Robusto is an ideal choice for both Connecticut leaf enthusiasts and fans of H. Upmann’s famously refined and complex smokes. A great pairing smoke for coffee, ale, tawny port, or sherry.
