The term Gran Reserva applies only to Habanos whose fillers, binders and wrappers have all been aged for at least 5 years prior to rolling. In addition, only the best leaves from Vuelta Abajo, the finest tobacco growing zone in Cuba and arguably the world, are chosen to undergo the lengthy ageing process to ensure that the final product when smoked will offer a unique balanced blend of rich flavours and mature aromas.
The iconic Cohiba Siglo VI was the first cigar presented as a Gran Reserva in 2009 and was rolled using tobaccos harvested several years previous (Cosecha 2003). The iconic Montecristo No.2 vitola followed in 2011 (Cosecha 2005) and a couple of years later the Partagas Lusitania (Cosecha 2007). Most recently we have seen the delayed Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill (Cosecha 2009). Now we have the pleasure of introducing H.Upmann Sir Winston (Cosecha 2011) to the Gran Reserva portfolio.
Like its predecessors, the Sir Winston Gran Reserva (Cosecha 2011) are presented in beautiful lacquered boxes which hold 15 double banded cigars. Each box is numbered and there is very limited supply as only 5,000 boxes (75,000 cigars) are produced in total for the global market.
