Cigar Of the Week
January 2, 2008
FILLER: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia
Gran Habanos have become the quiet brand that always seems to score well in CIGAR AFICIONADO taste tests. The young company has had several ratings in the 90s, and we’re quite enamored with its latest creation, the Gran Habano 3 Siglos, which translates to “three centuries.” The cigar line debuted in December 2006, and we were especially taken with the Gran Robusto, which only seems to have gotten better since its initial release. The 6-inch x 44-ring cigar has a complex blend and lots of leather and earth. G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas S.A., the factory owned by George and Guillermo Rico, is proving itself to be one of the leading rollers of smokes in Honduras.
