The H. Upmann 175 Anniversary Limited Edition, presented during IPCPR 2019, has started shipping to retailers across the country. The 50-count humidors are also beginning to arrive at stores. To celebrate this special milestone, H. Upmann tapped A.J. Fernandez, who brought forward the extremely elusive “Medio Tiempo” wrapper to add complexity and flavor as the final dressing of this Nicaraguan puro. A.J. and his team carefully harvested this special leaf and utilized very intricate fermentation processes for over three years, which, while extremely time-consuming, brought out the very best in the medio tiempo leaf. Vitola: Churchill 50×7. Suggested retail price (SRP): $18.00 per cigar. SRP for the 50-count H. Upmann Special Edition Humidor: $1,250.
