In June, Altadis U.S.A will launch a new version of the H. Upmann 1844.

It’s called H. Upmann 1844 Classic and uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over binder and fillers from Honduras including both classic Cuban-seed Honduran tobaccos and broadleaf grown in Honduras.

There will be four sizes:

  • H. Upmann 1844 Classic Corona (5 x 44) — $7.10 (Box of 25, $177.50)
  • H. Upmann 1844 Classic Robusto (5 x 52) — $7.40 (Box of 25, $185)
  • H. Upmann 1844 Classic Toro (6 x 54) — $7.70 (Box of 25, $192.50)
  • H. Upmann 1844 Classic Churchill (7 x 54) — $8 (Box of 25, $200)

It will join other lines under similar names like the H. Upmann 1844 Reserve and the H. Upmann 1844 Añejo.

The cigar will be launched at the 2021 Tobacco Plus Expo, which happens May 12-14 in Las Vegas.

Update (April 30, 2021) — Altadis U.S.A. issued a press release and images today; the story has been updated with those details.
