It was on the 1st of April that my supplier first e-mailed me some information about the launch of a new cigar brand in the UK, and as new cigar releases have been a little on the light side over the last year, my interest was piqued immediately. However, when I saw the name of the new brand Umnum, I felt a little deflated as I immediately thought that my supplier was playing an April fools joke on me, albeit quite an accomplished one. Well, the joke was on me, as the brand is real. Not only that, the quality to price ratio is very much in the consumer's favour!
Made by Condega who are situated in the Condega valley in Nicaragua the brand pays tribute to Central America’s indigenous culture. Tobacco was the axis of the initiation rituals of the millenary Amerindian culture, from Cabo Camaron in Honduras to the Rio Grande in Nicaragua. But only the Chaman's or Sukia had the privilege of consuming it. Thankfully that has now changed so we can all enjoy the wonderfully rich flavours of these cigars.
Comprising of filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Ometepe in Nicaragua, bound together by an Indonesian binder and draped in a wonderful Sungrown Nicaraguan wrapper which has produced a medium-bodied cigar with some gorgeous sweet earthy notes backed up by leather and nuts.
Until the 16th of May, we are offering the Umnum Canonazo (5 1/4 x 52) at a special introductory price of £12.60 per stick. Stock is limited, so I suggest that you order sooner rather than later. Further introductions to the range will take place in early May, so keep watching this space!
