Nicaraguan fillers are at the heart of the company’s products. The Ricos then utilize a variety of binders and wrappers to make each of their best cigars something very special.
The #5 Gran Habano is a full-bodied offering comprised of a Nicaraguan Corojo and Costa Rican filler with a distinctive reddish Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, bound together with an additional Habano leaf. This is a bold, rich, and robust cigar, one to be treasured by connoisseurs.
The Gran Habano 3 Siglos created quite a stir when it was first released a few years ago, becoming the hallmark of the brand. Its earthy robustness delivers the kind of flavor that reminds long-time cigar fans of the legendary pre-embargo Cubans.
For the most experienced enthusiast, the Gran Habano VL should be one cigar that lives in the humidor. First released in 20005, its combination of Nicaraguan and Costa Rican fillers is nicely complemented by a Maduro wrapper. A limited-release cigar, the Gran Habano is truly a collector’s item. If you have managed to acquire an entire box or even a handful, guard your stash closely and dip into it judiciously. Only 250,000 were ever made and when they’re gone, there aren’t going to be anymore.
This is but a small sampling of the entire Gran Habano brand. To gain a true appreciation for the amazing variety of cigars they make, smoking one from each line is recommended.
