The H. Upmann Sir Winston is a cigar suitable for special occaisions. It is what is known as a Churchill cigar (surprise surprise), that means it is 7 inches long with a ring gauge of 47 (that's 47/64 of an inch thick). So, it's quite a large lump of tobacco. But, what a lump of tobacco it is. I found this cigar to be mild enough that most smokers could enjoy it even if they were not used to smoking 'proper' cigars, yet it had enough flavour to hold the interest of the more discerning cigar smokers. The cigar lit very easily, it had a nice, even burn and the draw just right. The flavours were mostly sweet, not all that spicy. It had plenty of smoke, nice for showing off with great big smoke rings. It can take over an hour and a half to smoke one of these. The only downside to this cigar is the price. As with all Cuban cigars in this country you have to pay through the nose for them, you are looking to pay at £15 a cigar for them.
