H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro is among the most recent cigars to bear the coveted H. Upmann name, and this time the blend is from the Dominican Republic! Over the past several years, Altadis USA has teamed up with some big names in attempts to re-kindle the classics. Of all the recent remakes, however, the H. Upmann blends seem to garner the most attention. Just a couple years back, H. Upmann by AJ Fernandez took things to a whole new level, and now Altadis has given another rising star in the cigar world a chance to put his own twist on things. Jose “Pepe” Mendez is best known for a recent addition to the Montecristo portfolio: Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez. After the success of that particular offering, he had the chance to recreate the H. Upmann blend at the famed Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic using his own recipe. Speaking of the recipe, this cigar consists of a filler blend from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, a Dominican Olor binder, and a golden brown Ecuador Sumatra wrapper leaf. Not your typical H. Upmann, this stick is made to be a whole new animal.

Classic packaging was a must for this release. Retro style cedar chests contain the gorgeous vitolas bearing rustic red and gold bands. The cigar itself is rustic and oily, boasting fine yellow veins throughout the surface. Impressive construction leads to a dense roll and a generous draw, yielding an opening of black pepper and toasty cedar. Creamy tobacco and roasted nuts are the stars of the show, along with hints of tangy citrus and spicy cayenne. A clean finish seals the deal on this medium-full-bodied blend, which is eerily reminiscent of the Cubans of old. The Toro size comes in at 6 1/8” x 52 and offers a lengthy, satisfying smoking experience.

H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez is certainly a stick to try if you are looking for something different. Any intermediate-level connoisseur will be able to thoroughly enjoy the classic, yet complex profile, while more experienced cigar freaks should be impressed by its Cuban style flavor. This blend pairs particularly well with scotch or bourbon due to its medium-full-bodied nature. Somewhat similar in stature to the classics such as Romeo y Julieta or Punch, H. Upmann Hispaniola tells quite a story with each puff. If you are a fan of the recently revamped classics or even if you just want to try a new blend that seems to really stand out, it is without a doubt in your best interest to try an H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro.
