This was my first rendezvous with the Upmann Sun Grown, here are my thoughts:

  1. Good construction, burn, and easy draw
  2. Solid medium cigar
  3. A smoker can expect mostly wood and spice
  4. My smoke time was 1 hour and 40 minutes

Now to the two questions:

  1. Would I smoke it again? No
  2. Would I give it humidor space? Yes

Ok so you’re probably scratching your head at this point. You’re thinking why would I give it humidor space if I wouldn’t smoke it again? The answer is although the Sun Grown wasn’t necessarily my style, it is a great step above an introductory cigar for newer smokers or for buddies who smoke once in a while that want a little extra flavor. Overall I enjoyed the Sun Grown, but feel it is better suited for smokers who enjoy more medium strength/body cigars.

  1. Wondering why you don’t review Davidoff cigars. Read most of your cigar reviews and majority are full bodied or nicotine bombs. Just a constructive opinion.

    1. That’s an excellent question and it’s actually funny you say that since I started to piece together a review on the Davidoff Nicaragua box press, but haven’t quite finished it yet, so keep an eye out for that! Overall though, you are correct as we are typically full bodied cigar smokers and so our review choices reflect that. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback, we really appreciate it! – Mo

    2. We are always smoking new stuff, sometimes reviews just don’t make it up on the site.
