Since 2000, Habana S.A has released every year an 'Edicion Limitada' cigar. These cigars used to wear an extra aged wrapper only until 2007. Until then every leafs in the cigar goes through the extra 2 years of aging. This allows the blend to be rounder and smoother.
Edicion Limitada cigars are very easy to recognise, they wear an extra black and gold band indicating the year of release.
For 2017 Cuba announced three new limitadas, the most famous of all of them is the Cohiba Talisman (you can read the review here), then the Punch Regios de Punch and the Partagas Series No.1.

H. Upmann cigars are classified by Habanos S.A. as light to medium strength and as a global brand in their portfolio.
The brand was first introduced in 1844.
The Anejados concept was introduced first in 2015 with the Romeo Y Julieta Piramides Anejados. Since then Cuba has released few cigar with a double band mentioning the concept name: Anejados. All these cigars have been aged in Cuba for 5 years or more, allowing the blend to be rounded and mellower when released.
Se far I haven't had a very impressive cigar coming out of this new range from Habanos S.A.
Let's see what the H Upmann Robusto tells us...
