For the first time in the brand’s history, the non-Cuban H. Upmann is getting the Añejo treatment. At the end of the month, Altadis U.S.A. will be shipping the H. Upmann 1844 Añejo, an offshoot line of cigars made with tobacco that the company says is extra aged.

The word añejo is Spanish for “old” or “vintage,” and according to Altadis, all the leaf within the Añejo line is at least five years old.

Made in Honduras at the Flor de Copan factory, H. Upmann 1844 Añejo consists of an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Pennsylvania broadleaf binder and filler from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

The new H. Upmann cigars come packaged in 25-count boxes and are made in three sizes: Robusto, which measures 5 inches by 50 ring gauge; Toro, at 6 by 54; and Magnum at 6 by 60. The cigars will range in price from $7.10 to $8.10 before taxes.

With the exception of the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta Añejo, which came out in 2015, the H. Upmann 1844 Añejo is the only brand in the Altadis portfolio to have an Añejo designation.
