At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, Altadis U.S.A. unveiled a second installment to its limited edition H. Upmann Banker Ingot line, the H. Upmann Banker Ingot Rosé.
The Ingot line is an offshoot of the H. Upmann Banker , a line that pays homage to brand founder Herman Upmann. Upmann was a German banker who in 1844 went to Havana Cuba and invested in a cigar factory – which became the H. Upmann brand. The first installment of the Ingot, the H.Upmann Banker Private Holding was released last year. The Ingot kept to the roots of banking as the cigars were packaged in gold brick packaging and had gold banding. The Ingot Private Holding was a one-time limited edition box-pressed Toro.
The new installment, the H. Upmann Banker Ingot Rosé, brings an all-new blend consisting of an aged Cameroon wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and fillers from Nicaragua, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. The Ingot Rose is being made in one size – a 6 3/4 x 48 Churchill. It is available in 12-count boxes with a total of 5,000 boxes (60,000 cigars) produced. The Ingot Rosé will feature rose-colored brick packaging and rose-colored bands.
Pricing is set at $12.00 per cigar. The cigar is slated for widespread distribution in September.
