The H.Upmann Majestic is a delightful Crema, a well-balanced medium-full with some dried olive flavor. This new format from H. Upmann is an invitation to a short smoke of a pleasant blend, much appreciated in our modern fast paced world. It is nevertheless a true Cuban puro, never too harsh, where the aromas are very well balanced. Perfect choice when time is of the essence. Newcomers to Cuban cigars will enjoy it as much as long time aficionados.
• With olive oil, capers and a hint of cognac, reminiscent of tapenade but balanced with toasted aged tobacco taste.

Before lighting up
Saltiness and the scent of olive oil on the wrapper. The foot smells of aged tobacco and leather.
A nice even burn and a pleasant draw.
Hints of tobacco and vanilla with black olives.
More black olive essence with an undertone of cognac.
Definitely tapenade with a smoky hand rubbed leather.
In summary, a fantastic cigar that you’ll want to eat. Would pair well with cognac.
