H. Upmann 175 Anniversary comes in a single Churchill size.

Altadis U.S.A.’s celebratory H. Upmann cigar is heading off to stores. The H. Upmann 175 Anniversary, a limited-edition smoke that honors 175 years of the H. Upmann brand, should arrive at retail stores this week.

H. Upmann 175 Anniversary is a puro, rolled entirely with Nicaraguan leaf from the tobacco farms of A.J. Fernandez. According to Altadis, 175 Anniversary is covered in a medio tiempo wrapper. This type of leaf grows high atop the tobacco plant—but it doesn’t always sprout—making it a special tobacco prized for its rarity and intense smoking characteristics. The cigar is rolled at A.J. Fernandez’s factory in Nicaragua.

175 Anniversary comes in a single 7 inch by 50 ring gauge Churchill size that will retail for $18. Only 14,750 boxes of 10 will be released. In addition to the 10-count boxes, the cigar will also come in a special commemorative humidor containing 50 Churchills. Altadis will ship 50 of these special humidors to retailers. The humidor is priced at $1,250.
