The Gran Habano brand is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a commemorative line called Gran Habano XX Aniversario Edicion Limitada. The company will be showcasing the cigars at its booth during the upcoming PCA trade show in Las Vegas. It was originally slated for release last year but was delayed due to the pandemic.
The Gran Habano XX Aniversario Edicion Limitada is rolled at the company’s factory in Danlí, Honduras, G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas S.A. The blend consists of a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper grown under shade around a Nicaraguan binder and a mix of fillers from Nicaragua, Peru and Colombia. According to the company, the cigars were aged two years after rolling.
The line ships in boxes of 20 and will be available in four sizes: El Sueño, measuring 5 inches by 52 ring gauge ($14); El Recuerdo, 5 5/8 by 46 ($13); El Desafio, 6 by 54 ($15); and El Triunfo, 6 by 60 ($16).
“It is with great pride that after 27 years in business as a company, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our brand, Gran Habano,” brand owner George Rico told Cigar Aficionado. “It is a wonderful feeling to reach this special milestone as a brand… We look forward to the next chapter in our family's journey, and to the new generations continuing the family tradition that has allowed four previous generations be successful in the industry of tobacco."
This is a limited-production release with 4,000 boxes of each size made and will be released quarterly. Only 200 retailers will be carrying the line when it starts to ship in August.
