(Ft. Lauderdale, FL) -- A spokesman at the company called it "perhaps our finest H. Upmann yet."

Embodying H. Upmann’s long tradition of fine cigar making, the new 1844 Reserve was introduced at this year's IPCPR show and began shipping last month. From its intricate and complex flavor sensations to its great white ash, the new 1844 Reserve captures everything aficionados have loved about H. Upmann cigars, and then some! This superb, fuller-bodied smoke is handcrafted in the Dominican Republic and features an Ecuadorian Cubano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Dominican filler tobaccos.

H. Upmann 1844 Reserve is available in a (33 X 4 ½ ) Demitasse size, which is packaged in boxes of 60 and has a suggested retail price of $2.25 per stick. Larger sizes include Corona (44 x 5 ½), Robusto (50 X 5), Churchill (50 X 7), Belicoso (52 X 6 1/8) and Toro (54 X 6). Suggested retail prices range from $5.25 to $6.75.
