H.Upmann - Connoisseur No.1

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think of Conni No. 1?

I haven't tried anything much from the H. Upmann line other than Royal Robustos which I like very much.

Connie 1 is a good size, but I was wondering how similar it is to the RR?

Is RR a good representation of the H.Upmann line? and Connie would taste similar?

thanks

I have a few singles on the way. Really looking forward to firing one up. I'll get back to when I do.

This is one box I've been meaning to buy for literally a year and a half but still haven't gotten around to. I've not heard bad things but the older iterations I've smoked were not terribly impressive (new production I hear is great).

Since '09 the ones I have smoked have been very good.I have a box from '09,'10,'11,'12,and they are all spot on.

The '10s went dull for a few months,but bounced back.

I would not hesitate to get some '13s,every '13 I have tried so far has been good.[Jan,Feb,Mar]

Yep agreed. Although i did try as a robusto sampler first and really enjoyed it. And then smithy's review made me commit to a box enjoyed it fresh and i just had it recently its probably with 3-4 years of age magnificent. I've got a HQ box on the way, this probably only second to RASS for the robusto size for me.

I'm probably out by myself here but I find it out on it's own from the rest of the Upmann line up: like the mag 46. Not taste wise, just by being a blacksheep of the marca, the connie #1 to me tastes like a diplomatico more than anything else lost.gif

Upmann, like the other global brands, have different sub-blends, IMO. The Magnum line is very different from the Connoisseur. They embody different characteristics of an "Upmann."

The Royal Robusto brings that raw power you find in Magnum, mostly the 46. It's a young release however, so I can't bare to comment on what else it may embody. The Connoisseur is a thing of its own; I'd say the closest thing to it so far in the marca is the Half Corona. That said, I have raved about the 2011 C#1s for a while.

H.Upmann is one of my favourite marcas, especially the Sir Winston and the 2007 Travel Humidor Robusto.

I smoked my first Royal Robusto recently and found it to be excellent, but not typical H.Upmann in my opinion. I found the Royal Robusto fuller in body and different in flavour than most other H.Upmann's I've had.

I think the Connie 1 is good, and reasonably typical of the H.Upmann profile. I don't think it's similar at all to the Royal Robusto.

I'm interested to hear other's opinions on this.

I have some AGO 11 and am loving them, a few have been smooth christmas cake and stewed fruit to the nub.

H Upman Connie 1 is on of my favorite cigar out there. I can't compare it to the royal Robusto because I haven't had it, but the connoisseur number one is one of the most consistent cigars available today, in my opinion. I find that flavor wise it has a lot of flavor but not a lot of power if that makes any sense.

For some reason it doesn't seem to be very common cigar with which works just perfectly for me :-)

Enjoy!!

Received a few singles today. Will let them sit for a week or two, then give a try. Can't wait, never met a upmann I didn't like.

You have better patience that me. I've always got to smoke new arrivals, at least one or two, right away cigar.gif

This is the one Upmann I really don't like. This has become my favorite marca along with Bolivar.

One of my favorite H. Upmann. I smoke 1-2 a week. I also like to give them out to friends and new smokers. Great flavor, consistent and the construction is always good. In other words a sure bet when I grab one.

agree the RR is different,but they ARE young.also the ring guage is pretty big.deeper flavors and young tobacco sweetness.

have had Connie 1s from claro to colorado,all are excellent,and portray the Upmann profile,leather,oak leaf,caramel,spice.

generally the Connie 1 is the largest ring size I smoke from Upmann,I have some of the smaller sizes in my rotation.
