H. Upmann Legacy

Atladis USA has announced a new cigar to be a new cigar to be added to its H. Upmann line.  This cigar is called the H. Upmann Legacy.   Initial details for this cigar were first reported in the January 15th Cigar Insider.

The H. Upmann Legacy continues with a theme we noticed by Atladis that started in the latter part of 2011 and continued into 2012 – namely reinvigorating many of their existing lines with new and fuller cigar blends that have more contemporary packaging.  The Cigar Insider report indicates there will be a departure from H. Upmann’s traditional packaging.

The cigars will be made in Honduras at the Flor de Copan factory.

Here are the blend details that were mentioned in the report.
