July 13, 2012 — Habanos s.a. presents the first Edición Limitada -limited edition- of 2012. H. Upmann is one of the three brands selected on this occasion.

The arrival of this Edición Limitada to all markets worldwide is expected in the coming days.

The Ediciones Limitadas- Limited Editions- of Habanos* (D.O.P) are highly appreciated and awaited every year by enthusiasts worldwide.

They are characterized by vitolas-sizes- that do not appear in the usual range of the brand portfolio portfolio, and they are distinguished by a careful selection of their leaves – wrapper, filler and binder- which have been aged for a period of at least 2 years. The wrapper dressing these Habanos comes from the top leaves of the Tapado – shade grown- black Cuban tobacco plant, and is relevant characteristic that identifies these special productions. This wrapper is usually darker than the wrappers of regular range sizes of the brand.

The Ediciones Limitadas are made with the finest tobacco leaves coming from Vuelta Abajo* (D.O.P), Cuba.

Three Habanos brands will count with a Edición Limitada this year: Montecristo, Partagás and H. Upmann. H. Upmann´s Edición Limitada will be the first to reach the points of sale worldwide.

H. Upmann Robustos (ring gauge 50 x 124 mm in length) is the selected size for this Edición Limitada. The Robustos size does not exist in the permanent range of H. Upmann, but it had a great acceptance when launched in an exclusive Travel humidor at Cannes Fair in 2008. The Robustos size is highly appreciated by Habanos smokers. They will now have the occasion to enjoy it within the H. Upmann brand with the special blend and features of flavour and aroma of the Edición Limitada.

All the Habanos of this Edición Limitada 2012 are made ¨Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga -Totally Handmade with Long Filler – leaves coming fromVuelta Abajo* (D.O.P), Cuba. They are produced in small quantities by expert Cuban cigar rollers so as to meet the expectations of Habanos enthusiasts worldwide.

H. Upmann Robustos will be available in the classic H. Upmann labeled boxes of 25 units. The arrival to all outlets all over the world is expected in the next weeks.
