A triumphant return to form for one of the world’s great frontmarks, the H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon Belicoso cigar recaptures a long-forgotten magic. First introduced to the world in the 1970’s, the original and stunningly delicious Dominican-born H. Upmann stogie owed much of its heralded success to its trademark African Cameroon wrapper. The infamous Cigar Boom of the mid 1990’s led to such severe tobacco shortages that an Indonesian-sourced wrapper had to be substituted and while still wonderful, H. Upmann smokes had lost a piece of their soul. Now, the medium-strength Vintage Cameroon, containing a revamped blend of longleaf filler from Peru, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic plus a Nicaraguan binder, has righted the wrongs of the past.


The cedar sleeve which decorates and protects the lower portion of each Cameroon-enveloped 6 1/8” x 52 vitola might also be considered a shield for the senses, for once the shimmering oily barrel is revealed your mind will reel with desire, your hands will shake while searching for the nearest lighter, and your mouth will salivate in anticipation of a luxurious experience. Creamy, nutmeg-and-cardamom flavored smoke fills the room and the mouth right out of the gate, with some citrus in the aftertaste and an earthy black pepper in the retrohale. The profile wavers as you puff even as the burn does not, with rich dark chocolate-covered almonds one moment followed by rich cedar and espresso the next.


Come discover for yourself why a Cameroon wrapper was once the leaf of choice for the discerning aficionado with the surprisingly affordable 92-rated H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon Belicoso, then expand your horizons to old classics like Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva Natural and Cohiba or with more recent converts such as AJ Fernandez’ New World Cameroon. Suitable for pairing with a morning cup of Cuban coffee but able to stand up to finishing that bottle of bourbon-barrel Cabernet, you’ll be needing another humidor just to hold your budding stash of these fine sticks.
