Gran Habano Ships Blue in Green Cigar

George Rico’s Gran Habano brand has a new cigar heading to tobacconists this week called Blue in Green. The new smoke, which the company says is medium bodied, debuted at the IPCPR trade show last summer.

Made at the Rico’s G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas, S.A. in Honduras, Blue in Green wears a Connecticut-grown wrapper over binder and filler tobacco from Nicaragua. It comes in three sizes: Churchill, measuring 7 inches by 48 ring gauge; Gran Robusto, 6 by 54; and Robusto, 5 by 52. The Blue in Green vitolas come packaged in boxes of 20 and retail between $9.00 and $9.50 per cigar. 

G.R. Tabacaleras Co. was founded in Danlí, Honduras, in 1998 by George Rico’s father Guillermo. In 2003, the father-son team launched the Gran Habano brand. Less than five years later, Gran Habano earned a place on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2007 list when its Gran Habano 3 Siglos Gran Corona was rated 92 points.
