2003 was the year our staple Gran Habano family of handmade cigars was introduced to resounding success by father and son team, Guillermo and George Rico. These long-filler cigars became the core of the company brand with 3 distinct blends: the Connecticut #1, a mild but rich cigar with a Connecticut shade wrapper; the Habano #3, a medium-bodied cigar in Habano wrapper; and our most beloved blend, the Corojo #5, a peppery full-bodied cigar in Corojo wrapper.
The strongest blend in the Gran Habano profile, the filler consists of Nicaraguan and Costa Rican long-leaf tobacco with a Habano binder, all held together by a noticeably dark, flawless sun grown Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper producing rich, full-bodied flavors of dark chocolate and hints of spice.
These cigars offer a bold new experience in full-bodied premium cigars made with vintage tobaccos. Expect a remarkably smooth, earthy and spicy smoke, accompanied by notes of sweet wood and espresso of this aged smoke.
