H. Upmann Sir Winston is probably one of the biggest cigars that I've ever smoked and one of the most attractive. The rest, well... was a bit much. I like a good cigar that will let you know that it is there, mind you, but this one was too demanding of attention.
Very nice looking. Long, powerful cigar that makes you think of wealth.
Very very good from the first appearance and even the feel. It was a nice even burn all the way through. Someone did their homework on cigar construction with this one.
First, I'd like to say that I am sure there are people that would rate this cigar very high. For me though, it came on far too strong and rough at the initial lite-up. The flavor was all wood, stout musk and powerful. Almost too much for my palate. The second thirds was about the same. The final third, well, to be honest I just couldn't make it through it. This one just didn't work well for me.
A little much for such an ovewhelmingly stout smoke.
Overall Rating :
I know that this cigar is probably made for the more experienced smoker, one who goes through several a day. After a bit your palate seems to adjust and require a stronger smoke. But all in all, if you have a tender palate at all, you'd best shop elsewhere.
