This month Atladis USA is releasing a limited edition off-shoot to its H. Upmann – The Banker line. The new cigar is called H. Upmann Ingot TheBanker Private Holding.
An ingot is a name for a gold bar and this is a theme being incorporated into the box design. While the original H. Upmann Banker featured two green bands and a tissue paper sleeve, the Ingot features two gold matte bands and a gold foil sleeve.
The blend is very different from the regular production H. Upmann Banker line. The Ingot features a Criollo 98 wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar is available in one size – a 6 x 54 Toro. It will be packaged in eight count boxes and a total of 4,500 boxes have been produced. Each box is numbered and marked for authenticity. Pricing is $9.25 per cigar.
