The H. Upmann Signature Super Corona measures 5 5/8x45.  It comes in three other sizes as well: the 5.5x50 Double Eagle, the 6x50 Magnum, and the 7x54 Monarca.  At the heart of the cigar is a blend of long-filler tobaccos from Peru, Nicaragua, and Honduras.  It has a Nicaraguan binder a Nicaraguan Connecticut Shade wrapper.  It also comes with the option of a Mexican San Andres Valley Maduro wrapper, if that’s more to your liking. 

I really like the appearance of this stick.  The Nicaraguan Connecticut Shade wrapper gives it a creamy brown outer shell that looks great under the light.  There are a few visible veins that run through its slightly oily body.  The light-colored wrapper is counteracted by an attractive black band near the head.  The band bears the company and cigar name in gold print and has Upmann’s signature in gold as well.  The cigar feels firm to the touch and has a bit of a sweet scent and cold taste before lighting.

 

After firing up the Signature Super Corona it burns very nicely without the need for touchups.  The draw is solid and it produces long, light-colored ash.  The flavors, like its appearance, are very smooth and soothing.  A nice creamy flavor starts the party that blends in with a bit of earth.  You also can sense some coffee and sweet flavors.  The flavors aren’t the most complex but do blend well together and this is a stick that would go great with some coffee as a complement.

The Signature Super Corona is yet another quality smoke from H. Upmann.  A solid burn is accompanied by great flavor that won’t overpower you.  It’s a great pick for medium-bodied lovers and beginners should be able to handle it too.  Those who prefer full-bodied cigars with a kick might not find enough of an “oomph” to keep them interested, though.  The price is decent considering its limited production and you can get a single for around $6 each.  It also comes in boxes of 20.  The smooth flavors and solid burn of the H. Upmann Signature Super Corona earn it a rating of 3.5 out of 4 stars. 

That’s all for now.  If you do decide to try either of these smooth selections from H. Upmann, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

+1 # Is This Signature As Good As the Argenti Original?Richard 2011-02-21 13:01
It should be noted that since this is a Jan. 2010 review of the H. Upmann Signature cigar, it very well could be the "new version" and not the original Signature cigars. The original H. Upmann Signature cigars were rolled by the Argenti brothers at Cuban Imports for Altadis and these have virtually disappeared from the shelves. The "new version," according to Lew Rothman at JR Cigars, is now "made by Jesus Piñeda Henríquez at Altadis, S.A.'s Flor de Copán factory in Honduras." Having really enjoyed the original, I have to wonder just how close this "new version" is to the Argenti original?
