H Upmann Magnum 48 LE 2009 amongst all of the 2009 restricted editions, this was the cigar I used to be probably the most desperate to strive. Firstly, as a result of it acquired the very best rankings in all the key publications. Secondly, as a result of I’m an enormous fan of all of the Magnum collection from H. Upmann – you possibly can try my opinions of the Magnum 46 and the Magnum 50. The brand new Magnum 48 is a brief robusto, comparable in size to the Petit Edmundo, however with a barely smaller ring gauge.
This can be a quick and stout cigar, arduous as rock, with a deep brown wrapper. The veins are seen as a result of they’re lighter than the wrapper. The Magnum 48 exhales an incredible bitter tobacco taste, with notes of cocoa. It sports activities an ideal triple cap which, when rigorously eliminated, offers a snug pre-draw with some apparent black pepper.
I discovered this cigar to be superbly constructed with an easy draw, a straight burn and a really agency ash. I may have used some extra smoke, however it is a minor concern, if in any respect.
The primary pulls are surprisingly tender. The spice is barely perceptible and the cedary flavors pleasantly intersect these of cocoa and chocolate.The smoke is spherical and barely candy, medium- to full-bodied. Within the second third, the stability is revered regardless of an evident improve in energy. There may be nonetheless a number of wooden and the sweetness is attenuated as quickly as I strategy the second band – to reappear half an inch later. The end is lengthy and soothing, with wealthy flavors of earth and wooden.
I believe that this cigar deserves a spot within the humidor, I would not hesitate to purchase a field and see how the Magnum 48 evolves with time.
General Ranking : ★★★★½
This was an fulfilling expertise and I will make certain to have some at hand, probably the most troublesome half shall be to not smoke all of them in 2009. The Magnum 48 lives as much as the expectations and reaches the identical ranges of high quality as its older and greater cousins.
