Umnum heading to Switzerland. Yesterday, the news that Umnum Nicaragua is coming to The Netherlands was published. Today the news breaks that the brand is making its way to Switzerland. And unlike The Netherlands, both lines are coming to the alpine country. Not just the Nicaragua blend, as is the case in The Netherlands.


The umnum line consists of two blends. One made in Honduras. The other one hails from Nicaragua. The cigars are all tripa larga, real long-fillers. And that for insane prices that are unheard of. Of course, there are budget cigars on the market in Europe, but cigars in the price range of the Umnum are never longfillers. Those are always medium fillers aka Cuban sandwich cigars. So these cigars will stir up some conversation. 

Company spokesman and brand manager David González Haya says “we rather sell a lot for a small margin, than a small number of cigars for a high margin”.


Umnum Honduras is a full-bodied cigar with notes of wood, leather, and spicy herbs. The wrapper is Sun Grown in Honduras. A San Andres binder is next. The filler comes from Jamastran (Honduras), Esteli, and Jalapa (Nicaragua). The production takes place in an undisclosed factory in Honduras.

Umnum Nicaragua comes from Nicaragua. From Tabacera Valle de Jalapa. The wrapper is Nicaraguan Sun Grown Colorado. The binder comes from South East Asia, from Indonesia. The filler is from Jamastran (Honduras), Jalapa, and Esteli (Nicaragua). The flavor profile is earthy, leathery with coffee and nuts. The strength is medium in body.

And now Umnum is heading to Switzerland. Both lines come in a Jumbo (4½x60), Cañonazo (5¼x52), and a Bond (4½x44). All three sizes are available for the Swiss cigar enthusiasts.
