The third vitola of the 2009 releases is the H.Upmann Magnum 48, the third addition to the successful Magnum Series. Habanos wanted a a light to medium-flavoured smoke but our tasting notes revealed a small beast under its delicate aroma. The cigars come in SLB boxes containing 25 units.
Length: 110 mm

The Magnum 48 is our favorite of all 3 Limitadas of 2009. It kicks from the very start then rises crescendo with loads of roasted coffee beans. Draw, wrapper, and combustion: everything is perfect for this petit robusto style cigar. The "finale" is explosive with a spiciness that we are not used to with H. Upmann. It's not comparable to any usual cigar of the brand. You'll burn your fingers until you realize that your cigar is finished, the only consolation is to light up another Magnum 48!
