BACKGROUND: The Banker is the newest line under Altadis USA’s H. Upmann brand. The Banker pays homage to the original brand founders, August and Herman Upmann. As bankers, the brothers saw financial opportunity in creating a unique cigar blend that could be securely locked away in their vaults only to be gifted to their most special clients, friends and family. After nearly 170 years, Altadis USA has recreated a blend in the same style as the original. The Banker by H. Upmann is crafted in the Dominican Republic using an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
