Altadis U.S.A. is releasing the Herman’s Batch, a specially blended cigar honoring the founder of H. Upmann cigars, a brand recognized throughout the world of fine cigars and steeped in Cuban cigar history.
Herman’s Batch has its roots in pre-revolution Havana, Cuba, where the first of two Upmann brothers – Herman – arrived in 1844 to open a branch of the family bank. The institution rapidly became one of the most successful in the island country, in large part due to Herman’s sharp mind for business and exquisite manners with his clients.
Fortunately for adult cigar lovers, Herman found time to indulge his fondness for sensuous luxury – namely premium, hand-made Cuban cigars. So passionate for fine cigars, Herman, along with his younger brother, took a leap of faith and founded their own cigar brand H. Upmann in 1844.
