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.
