October 9, 2013 — Habanos, s.a. introduces H.Upmann Connossieur A, an exclusive release aimed at shops deserving the Habanos Specialist distinction as well as to La Casa del Habano franchise stores existing around the world.
H.Upmann is one of the most historic Habanos* brands, founded in Havana in 1844. The brand is a fine example of elegant light to medium flavored Habanos* (D.O.P) .
The excellence regarding the history and prestige of the brand founded in 1844 is shown in the gold medals of the H.Upmann boxes, that certify the awards obtained in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 19th Century.
Connossieur is a historic Linea within the H.Upmann brand, whose most relevant size was the very much appreciated Connossieur No 1. This Linea is now updated with the new Connossieur A, a new trendy vitola that incorporates for the first time the new Connossieur exclusive ring which enhances the image of H.Upmann in the 21st Century.
