The H. Upmann Sir Winston Gran Reserva Cosecha 2011 is a 7 x 47 Churchill vitola, also known as the Julieta No. 2. It uses tobacco from the 2011 crop grown in Cuba’s Pínar del Río province, the westernmost province and home to the island’s premium tobacco farms.
This is the first time that the H. Upmann marca has been used for a Gran Reserva release, which is considered to be among Habanos S.A.’s top cigars produced. All of the tobacco has been aged for a minimum of five years, before rolling the cigars, and only released when there is enough tobacco to produce such a release as opposed to on a fixed schedule.
