The epitome of 'boutique'.
The Graycliff name represents one of the industry’s most prestigious brands in handmade cigars. This veritable ultra-premium is carefully hand-crafted by a tiny team of 12 master-rollers, under the strict and watchful eye of Avelino Lara - the genius behind Cuba’s original Cohiba. Made in true boutique fashion, each Graycliff cigar is composed of exquisite, patiently aged tobaccos and offers the highest standard in quality, taste, and satisfaction.
Enter the Original Series, the blend that started it all for the mighty Graycliff. Otherwise known as the ‘red label’, this fine cigar alerted the world outside of Cuba that Avelino Lara has landed. And boy does it ever deliver. The Original Series employs a leathery Indonesian wrapper loaded with natural oils, and a second Indonesian leaf of equal quality serving as binder. Beneath these tasty leaves, a complex recipe of supremely aged long-fillers from the Dominican, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Honduras. The bouquet is rich, yet smooth, with a hearty array of coffee and spicy-sweet flavors. The aftertaste is pleasant, with a generous dose of earth that lingers long on the palate. Medium in body and exceedingly complex, there’s nothing quite like the original Graycliff.
In addition to several ‘91’ ratings and ‘Humidor Selection’ honors, the Graycliff Original Series recently received another 90-point score, noting:
" A beautiful full-bodied cigar. It has a strong cedary character, with elements of earthiness and leather on the palate. There is also a nutty note. Strong earthy finish."
