H Upmann’s Herman’s Batch cigar was blended in tribute to the historic brand’s founder, German banker Herman Upmann. The cigar’s unique tobacco recipe of 4-year aged, double fermented Ecuadoran Habano wrapper over Dominican binder leaves and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua was created to deliver a modern take on the original H. Upmann cigar’s classic profile for today’s cigar-lovers. The resulting smoke is loaded with full flavors of smooth earth, bold pepper, and deep creaminess – a tasting profile that’s just begging to be paired with a strong, sweet drink. That’s where the Herman’s Batch Gift Set comes in.
While it doesn’t actually include a ready-to-consume beverage (that could get a little messy), the H. Upmann Herman’s Batch Gift Set comes complete with five H. Upmann Hermans Batch Toro cigars, a copper Moscow Mule cup, cocktail stirrer, and recipe card with instructions for making the perfect “Herman’s Mule” for pairing. With this set and the appropriate drink ingredients, you can enjoy the rich taste of H. Upmann just like old Herman used to – with a stiff drink to “wash it down.”
Speaking of, ever wonder why Mules are traditionally served in a copper cup? It’s because copper is a great thermal conductor, guaranteeing a crisp, cold sip that complements the taste of the popular cocktail. This custom dates back to the 1940s when the drink was first introduced.
