One simple word to describe the H. Upmann Sun Grown Magnum would be flavorful. It seems as if there is never a dull moment, and the cigar offers nice doses of complexity. The familiar sweet flavor is noticeable right off the bat. Further into the first third comes some citrus that counteracts mild spice. The cigar's strength kicks up a notch in the second third with stronger spicy pepper and some wood. The pepper maintains a nice level of strength until the final third, which is marked by a lot of creaminess and some rich almond notes. The Sun Grown Magnum is not overly strong, but it provides enough of a punch to keep you on your toes.

It's not much of a surprise that the H. Upmann Sun Grown Magnum is a solid cigar. H. Upmann has made a name for itself with other quality offerings, and the Sun Grown Magnum is no different. The cigar's construction and burn are top-notch, and its flavor is even better. Experienced smokers are likely to enjoy the H. Upmann Sun Grown due to its perfect mix of strength and flavor. The approximately $6 price tag on each Magnum makes the cigar a great value. Its price combined with its quality definitely makes it worthy of a box purchase. Boxes come with 21 Magnums, but you can also look around for packs of five on the Web.

The H. Upmann Sun Grown Magnum earns a very solid rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro No. 4


La Flor Dominicana introduced its Colorado Oscuro line during the 2011 IPCPR show. The company decided to make it a limited production cigar to be released just twice a year. I am lucky enough to have a No. 4 in my possession and am chomping at the bit to light it up, so let’s get on with the review.

The La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro No. 4 measures 5 ¼ x 54. Other sizes in the line include the 4 ¼ x 48 No. 2, 5 x 50 No. 3, and the 5 ¾ x 60 No. 5. The filler is made from Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, while the binder is of the Dominicana Sumatra variety. The real highlight of the cigar, however, is its Ecuadorian Ligero Sumatra wrapper. The cigar’s strength is supposedly somewhere between the medium and full-bodied categories.
