There’s a new Cuban cigar coming to market and it’s premiering in Germany. Regional distributor 5th Avenue Products Trading GmbH will be unveiling the H. Upmann Connossieur No. 2 on November 24 at 7 pm via a virtual cigar party. The new smoke will bring H. Upmann’s Connossieur series to four sizes.
Participants of this digital event—about 350, including clients of La Casa del Habano and Habanos Specialist shops—are invited to smoke along remotely in much the way U.K. distributor Hunters & Frankau introduced the Ramon Allones Edición Limitada 2019 virtually in August. According to 5th Avenue Trading, there are no tickets for sale and all “tasting packages” (each containing a cigar, spirit and chocolate) have already been assigned.
As is the case with past world premieres, Germany will be the first market to sell the H. Upmann Connossieur No. 2. Afterward, the cigar will start to trickle into other global markets. There’s still no word on the retail price.
The Connossieur No. 2 will be the newest addition to H. Upmann’s Connossieur series since the Connossieur B, which came out in 2018. Strangely, there was no mention of the upcoming Connossieur No. 2 at the 2020 Habanos Festival, an event that showcases and previews all the new cigars planned for the year.
