One thing cigar lovers often enjoy is learning about the history of their favorite brands
Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) April 06, 2013
Online tobacco retailer TrueTobacco.com offers a wide selection of cigars, from the newest blends to older, established styles. Despite the increased popularity of newer boutique brands, many smoking aficionados often turn to older, established brands to find their favorite cigars. With their upcoming sale of H. Uppman's 1844 Reserve cigars, the company will give these customers a chance to affordably sample one of the oldest brands of cigar still commercially available, which TrueTobacco General Manager Nick Gordon calls "a legendary name in the cigar business."
H. Uppman's 1844 Reserve will appeal to any smoker seeking an old-fashioned cigar with a satisfying, medium smoke. Strictly naturally flavored, both sizes of the 1844 Reserve feature fine Dominican, Nicaraguan and Peruvian filler tobaccos, with a Nicaraguan binder and a natural wrapper of Ecuadorian Cubano tobacco. TrueTobacco's sale will offer 1844 Reserve cigars in the popular Robusto and Churchill sizes. Packaged in 20-count boxes, these premium cigars are medium-strength and medium-bodied and feature the complex and distinctive flavor for which H. Uppman has been known for over a century.
The "1844" title commemorates the company's founding in the nineteenth century in Havana, Cuba by Herman Upmann. While working as a banker on the island, Mr. Upmann decided to invest in cigar production, soon founding his own cigar manufacturing business. Purportedly the inventor of the practice of packaging cigars in cedar boxes, Upmann's company won major awards and international recognition for its fine cigars in the closing decades of the 1800s. The business prospered until the 1920s, when hard times and restructuring led to its acquisition by the Menendez y Garcia company. The Cuban Revolution of 1959 forced a relocation to the Dominican Republic, and the last years of the century saw the famous brand acquired by tobacco giant Altadis. Today, H. Upmann is still produced by Altadis, now a part of British company Imperial Tobacco. As of 2011, the Reserve blends were reformulated to capture the classic essence of Mr. Upmann's original cigar formulation and are available internationally in six different sizes.
Smokers interested in the latest version of this long-lived brand of fine cigar should navigate to TrueTobbaco.com and utilize the site's online checkout system during the sale period. TrueTobacco's business is centered around personalized, efficient customer service, and the retailer offers shipping discounts for large orders. Additionally, website customers can take advantage of the company's system of Loyalty Points, which rewards returning customers with discounts on further purchases. According to Mr. Gordon, this sale is just one of the many promotions and special deals the company offers from month to month.
Mr. Gordon says his company is happy to provide old classics through cutting-edge internet marketing. "One thing cigar lovers often enjoy is learning about the history of their favorite brands," he said. "The Upmann name has been famous for a long time, and for good reason. We hope any smokers who haven't encountered these cigars before will give them a try. It's a great way to really experience the history of tobacco and cigar-making."
