The H. Upmann brand was named after the bankers Hermann and August Upmann who imported Cuban cigars to Great Britain for their best customers. These Habanos were very popular and appreciated by these customers. Today, H. Upmann is one of the main Cuban manufactures and still has its main followers in Great Britain. H. Upmann cigars are distinguished by their frank aromas and earthy taste.
The legendary order of a few boxes of 'Little Upmann' by John F. Kennedy just on the eve of the United States embargo against Cuba shows the quality of these Habanos.
