H Upmann 1844 Special Edition Barbier Belicoso Cigars know that appearances matter. Taking a cue from its founder’s commitment to personal grooming. Herman Upmann believed that clothes make the man. How a cigar smokes is no less important.
The first thing smokers will notice is the Barbier’s signature barber pole wrapper. A fusion of a Sumatran leaf and a Connecticut leaf. The result is a mildly spiced profile.
Inside smokers will find a lovely blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pennsylvania Broadleaf tobacco. Which is richly capped with a Javan and Indonesian tobacco binder. Lighting it releases the lavish flavors of toast, spice, cocoa, and mixed nuts.
At six and one eight inches, with a fifty two ring gauge, the Belicoso provides an opulent forty minute smoke.
