hupmannsun1 We have two superb cigars to review today. First up is the H. Upmann Sun Grown Magnum, which will be followed by the La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro No. 4.

H. Upmann Sun Grown Magnum

The H. Upmann Sun Grown line was introduced during the 2010 IPCPR show. I have had positive experiences with H. Upmann cigars in the past, so I am expecting this Magnum to be no different. Let’s go a head and jump into the review, shall we?

The Magnum size in the H. Upmann Sun Grown line measures 6 x 54. Other offerings in the line include the 4 ½ x 54 Short Churchill, 5 ½ x 44 Corona, 6 1/8 x 52 No. 2, 7 x 54 Churchill, and the 7 ½ x 40 Lancero. The cigar’s filler is a blend of tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. The binder is listed as being of the Broadleaf variety. The highlight of the composition is the Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper. Strength-wise, the Sun Grown Magnum is said to be medium to full-bodied.

The Sun Grown Magnum is a good looking cigar with an inviting appearance. The wrapper is chocolate-brown in color, and it has a bit of oil that is visible under direct light. There are only a few medium veins that are noticeable. No major flaws are present. An eye-catching decorative band sits near the head. It displays the H. Upmann Sun Grown name and the mostly red and yellow colors of the band provide a nice contrast to the dark wrapper. The cigar's overall construction is excellent. Then again, this seems to be the theme with many H. Upmann cigars. Feeling the Magnum reveals that it is well-packed with tobacco. There are zero soft spots. As for the final pre-light characteristics, the Magnum offers a cold taste of tasty chocolate and a sweet aroma.

Once lit, the Sun Grown Magnum burns like a charm. The draw is superb, and there is ample smoke throughout the slow burn. The ash is very long and light gray in color. The burn never strays and stays even from beginning to end. Touch-ups and re-lights are not necessary, which is always a plus in my book.
