Graycliff G2

Unfortunately, we’re experiencing an extended manufacturer’s delay on Graycliff G2 boxes. Oddly enough, it’s the packaging that’s holding up the process. So in the interim, we’re offering bundles of 20 to hold you over.

Graycliff is well-versed at creating bold, complex blends - cigars that earn top honors and top ratings. But a mellow, mild-bodied blend was never an arrow in the Graycliff quiver....(cue dramatic music, release doves).....until now! Behold, Graycliff G2.

This lovely little Graycliff has it all: it’s got substance (not just a pretty face you see) and it’s an astonishingly cheap date to boot (more on that later). The G2 begins with a seamless, Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper, silky-smooth and an oily sheen. The aged mixture of long-fillers from Nicaragua are carefully blended with Cuban-seed Dominican tobaccos to promote a rich bouquet finished by creamy nuances. Notes of nuts and toast are noticeable along with a pleasant touch of leather and sweet elements plus a unique doughy aroma. Its richness becomes more present as it burns, bringing this mellow array of flavor builds from mild to medium in body toward the nub. Complex, yet sophisticated and well-balanced, the G2 is Graycliff’s ultimate anytime cigar. Topped off with an absolutely killer price point with CI’s discounted introductory offer - this cigar is the gateway to Graycliff if ever there was one.

Customer Reviews of “Graycliff G2”
“G2 Pirates are my new every day cigar. After years of smoking RP and ITC torpedoes, I noticed a reduction in their quality. The G2 Pirate is consistently delicious and of the quality one expects from Graycliff.”
SP of Fort Lauderdale, FL
“I've lately been preferring very full-bodied, stronger cigars. But it's cold outside and the wife said I should just smoke in the house tonight. Being the thoughtful guy I am, I selected a G2 instead of a stronger one I got in a sampler and settled in for what I expected to be a pretty bland smoke. It's not at all. It's creamy, flavorful and quite exquisite. Constructed perfectly, burns perfectly, tastes wonderful with notes of cream, nougat, and nuts. I am definately getting more of these. A really good cigar.”
DC of Beaufort, SC
“Picked up some torps in a sampler. After one day downtime in the humi, I sparked one. Tasty! Toasty, nice spice through the nose, good flavor, a mild to medium well constructed pleasure. A good stick at a great price point. Especially for a Graycliff!”
GF of Tega Cay, SC
“I bought a some boxes of these to hand out at my daughters wedding. The reception was outdoors and folks were burning G2's all over the place. I got a lot of compliments on them and managed to end up with about 15 leftover for my own private stash. I've had a chance to relax with a few now and really enjoy the mild smooth smoke.”
SC of Greensburg, PA
“The G2's have been very consistent in taste and quality and are now my everyday smoke. For the price CI sells them at, I can burn one anytime I like.”
SC of Greensburg, PA
“Creamy, toasty and a hint of spice.Not usually a fan of the mild-med bodied stick, but this PGX Toro G2 is the exception.Tons of flavor without being in your face. And big booming clouds of smoke that have a very appealing aroma. Will always have these on hand.”
BS of Slidell, LA
“Got some of these on the CI thanksgving weekly special I really enjoyed these anytime mild-med puros. They provided really nice flavors ..sweet leather, cedar and nuts. They look ,feel and smoke like a $7-$10 stick. I can't believe it's only 3 bucks for a box??!! Gonna grab a box for sure. ”
LM of El PAso, TX
“I told you a few years ago this is a great cigar, bout the dude who handed these out to his friends and they hated this lovely smoke. SNOBS! Every friend I have given one to is blown away, even the D.P.G, M.O.W, etc, fans This is a great cigar in any class. For you Conn. fans try them, you'll love them.”
RD of Wausau, WI
“They say you can't go home, for me this is true. But I can get a flashback of Moms fresh baked bread, just out of the oven, thick sliced, maybe lightly toasted with gobs of real butter. How is this possible you may ask? Well it happens every time I light up a G2. Is the somewhat doughy taste suggestion really true..? Oh ya! I bought a box of these on (June 22nd, 2010) sadly I am already on my last one. In humi's filled with Runations, big Gurkhas, Pepins, ect., oh yes and Gurkha Symphony's which are not nearly as mild. I got to longing for a good early morning with coffee cigar. "Go ahead" save the calories on those fatty pasteries, just spark one of these babies with your joe and you may as well be sittin right in your favorite bakery,(where cigar smoking is generally not allowed,) I might add. Oh and don't believe the veiny comment, these are flawless, all of them! I'm not big on Greycliff except for the 1666. / I will tell you now. CI has the best price on these and I just can't see it lasting. Buy em while the gettins good!”
RD of Weston/Wausau, WI
“I bought a box of these and only have four left. I've smoked quite a few, and I've given quite a few away. I'm not impressed, and neither were my friends. The G2 robusto consistently had a firm draw with an average amount of smoke. The flavor was decent though. Overall, an average cigar at best.”
CH of Oviedo, FL
“Let me set up this fan mail by explaining whats in my humidor right now. Its full of mild to medium cigars, with a few sample packs mixed in too. When I got the G2 I didn't know what to expect. After smoking it my opinion completely changed! It by far, beat the other 15 mild type cigars in my humidor. It is now in my top two cigars to watch for. Its clean, light smoke stood out from anything that I've had before. Definately a must buy for any mild cigar lover!”
NT of St. Charles, MI
“The wrapper was a bit veiny, but the structure was well put together allowing for a good draw and a compact ash. This cigar drew well and made for an easy smoke. It had complex taste that went with it in the beginning of the smoke a nice earthy and nutty flavor with a nice peppery finish. Although, as the cigar evolved the spicy peppery flavor began to overwhelm the rest of the flavors of the cigar. My suggestion is that if you are a fan of the spicy flavors of a cigar this is for you.”
DF of De Queen, AR
“A mild cigar with hints of tea and a medium finish. Nice, even burn with silver ash, ample amounts of smoke. Refreshing. One of my go to everyday cigars. Cannot go wrong with CI's price. Get them while their still "affordable"!!!”
CP of Honolulu, HI
“has anyone had the pleasure of trying a G2 ? I've heard soom good things but it would be nice to hear from those who have actually tried them”
JT of Fall River, MA
“Ah, my morning is off to a great start now. I got a G2 Toro from CBID and I am so glad I did. I was a bit skeptical, having seen some reviews say this stick was bland and lifeless, what a pack of lies. This cigar is wonderful as a breakfast cigar with a cup of coffee. However, given it's mild to medium body profile, I would suggest eating at least a doughnut or something of the like prior to smoking. I don't feel sick or anything, but there was definitely a shift in strength and I can feel it still. I'm buying a box!”
RT of Machesney Park, IL
“Wow what an awesome stick and the limited time price.This is a mild cigar for everyday smoke! Thanks CI will be picking more up soon.”
DA of Ellsworth AFB, SD
“These are great! An inexpensive GrayCliff will not disappoint, what a nice even burn! Mild, great in the hot tub!”
MM of Cumberland, MD
“FINALLY ! I had the privilege to sit back and enjoy a G2. I enjoyed it so much I ate the wrapper off the second one . Just kidding. I handed some out on New Years day to some friends and family members and not one person had anything negative to say about it. This cigar is welcomed in my humi. anytime alongside some other great cigars Thanks C.I.”
JT of Fall River, MA
“I received my first CI sampler recently, and the 1st cigar I smoked was my g2...I admit that I am a total amateur, but I found this one to be a complete joy to smoke...I had it with a nice Doghead IPA 90 minute ale. It was better at the last 4 inches.”
DC of Beverly, MA
“After reading the mixed reviews of the G2 I didn't really want to spend the $$ for a cigar that I wasn't sure of. But when I saw the Massively Mild sampler fleshed out with the Perdomo Reserve Champagne which I love, and Gurkha Symphony I always enjoy I figured why not. I just finished the Graycliff ’G2’ Pirate Torpedo and the only bad thing I can say about it is that it was over too soon. I immediately wanted to light up another one. It had an easy draw and burned down completely evenly. I wont try to talk about flavors, that's too subjective. I will say that if you enjoy the 5 Vegas Gold, the Perdomo Reserve Champagne, and the Gurkha Symphony you will be very happy with the Graycliff G2. My next order will include a full box of the Graycliff ’G2’ Pirate Torpedo. ”
DP of Minneapolis, MN
“Love the G2 Torpedo - one of the top five cigars smoked in 2011! A real pleasure - one is never enough.”
CJ of Averill Park, NY
“Fantastic Smoke! Mild but very flavorful. They have a permanent spot in my humidor and rotation. I usually prefer medium to full bodied cigars. The G2 may be mild but it makes up for it in taste. Do yourself a favor and buy a box today.”
CJ of Sallisaw, OK
“Got a couple of torpedo's in a sampler. Great tasting cigar with even burn. The two I smoked had poor draw, hoping I just got a couple that were wrapped a bit too tight. Maybe they are suppose to be like that, but I perfer not to turn blue when drawing.”
JA of Shoreacres, TX
“Has anyone tried these? I'm interested in hearing any feedback before I purchase any. I read the staff reviews and it sounds o.k. but you don't know what to expect until you tried them and there all on backordor'”
JT of Fall River, MA
“I just tried the Graycliff G2 torpedo I got in a sampler and loved it right down to the nub. Burned beautifully and evenly with a smooth draw. Even when it was set down for a few minutes it didn't go out, allowing me to resume my enjoyment. This will definitely be added as a regular.”
MS of Fort Myers, FL
“Some how when I was in college I missed the class that introduced you to the taste of leather, wood, charco, paper, and all the other words some use in describing a cigar. What I do know, this is a cigar that I will have no problem in purchasing them by the box. It is as smooth as any cigar I know of, but not so much that you don't notice the flavor. No burning of your mouth or tongue all the way down to the buring of your fingers since you don't want the cigar to end. Shame on you CI for including this in the sampler pack. You knew that this would create a rise in purchasing this cigar. Then again, it was a great way to introduce this smoke to all those who purchased the sampler. I can't say enough on how much I have enjoyed every samper pack I have purchased. Each one has included a smoke that creates a purchase on my part of certain cigars in the group.”
DM of Taylor, MI
“This is one beautiful cigar! It just does not have a flaw. I bought a bundle of another brand(that was a disappointment to say the least) and was offered a five cigar sampler by the sales clerk over the phone.It turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made.This is one of the best cigars I've ever smoked. I'm ordering a 20 pack right away! And one more thing:the price is a steal at less than 2.50 a pop! I highly recommend it!”
BL of Philadelphia, PA
“I'm not a cigar aficionado, but, the G2 Pirate is a damn good cigar.”
JF of Springfield, VA
“This is a well made cigar, but I made a mistake by smoking it when the sampler pack arrived. I didn't take CI's advice on leaving it in my humi for a few days after receiving. Becase of this, the draw was tight as if it had been in a higher humidy level. I was able to smoke the cigar by using a slim punch I have. It is a well made cigar, not meant for those who prefer mild, but not to strong for those in the middle. While I enjoyed the cigar, I like the Diesel Toro much better than this one.”
DM of Taylor, MI
“If you like mild-meduim bodied cigars then the Graycliff G2 should be on your radar. The G2 is a mixture of nicuraguan and dominican tobaccos that create a smoooth flavor without being overpowering. There is also some spice to this cigar along with the mild-medium body which keeps it from being boring like so many bargain basement "mild" cigars. Draw is better than some reviews claim, I keep my humidor around 68% and havent had any problems with draw. These cigars are easily worth the price and considering what most graycliff cigars sell for the G2 is a great deal.”
SM of Alburtis, PA
“Well I bought some of these G2 a few months ago and was really surprised, smooth. I am getting ready to order some torpedos. I love good cigars , but now, why should I try anything else, as long as I have my G2”
LA of HOUSTON, TX
“Pretty good smoke...good draw, even burn, however it left a pretty bitter after taste...not sure if I got a bad batch...all in all, its a decent smoke”
SA of Fort Worth, TX
“This is a decent cigar at a decent price, nothing less, nothing more.”
PN of Chula Vista, CA
“This one hits all the marks good feel, good wrapper, easy draw, even burn, good ash. It was a little milder than I usually prefer. I didn't like the flavor all that much but for the price it is definatly worth a try. Flavor is such an individual thing. Overall a good smoke.”
JL of SARATOGA SPRINGS, UT
“New to the game and haven't really smoked a lot of mild sticks yet, but this one is pretty full of flavor for how mild it is. Smooth draw, lots of thick smoke, and several flavors throughout(creamy, light pepper, hint of coffee). I'll be buying more no doubt, not only for myself, but to share with friends.”
MJ of Texas City, TX
“These are very mild cigars and in my opinion, great for a morning coffee break.... I was skeptical at first, but so far, this is my cigar to start the day or even when I want to give my taste buds a break. They are very cheap and CI does a good job in keeping these babies in my possession. Great for newbies who are getting into the cigar world. They will have a special place in the a.m. .... Thumbs up!”
VM of Alachua, FL
“....Given the limited choices of cigars between some European and American machine-mades, and on the other extreme end, the authentic and very expensive Cuban cigars that are available....here in Tehran (Iran), tried this G2 Robusto with delight. Need to mention that, amazingly, it had retained much of its moisture due to the use of cellophane. And after a few days, allowing it to rest and gaining back some of its lost moisture, was time to smoke. Mild, sweet, creamy and with a very sweet aroma. A good cigar for an introduction to hand-mades perhaps for someone used to smoking machine-made cigars .... A gateway indeed to hand-made cigars in general for the novice, or for those who just enjoying mild cigars or looking for a change of pace.”
HG of San Diego, CA
“I personally found it to be more towards mild rather than mild-medium. Burned well, evenly the whole smoke. Also burned very cool down to the nub, a huge plus in my book. 50 minutes for a Robusto to the nub. Very smooth and creamy from start to finish. I wouldn't buy a box, but if a 5 or 10 pack came along on sale, I would grab it for morning with coffee smokes. Not bad, not great. Had better cheap sticks, but had worse; ALOT worse.”
PM of Jersey City, NJ
“I received one of these Graycliff G2's in a sampler and I must admit I was thoroughly pleased. Mild to medium flavor very nice draw. I heard a lot of negative things about these cigars, but I'm beginning to realize that in the cigar smoking world, don't knock it until you try it yourself.”
JV of Beachwood, NJ
“I have ordered these since CI first offered them and keep coming back for more. These are my favorite mild cigar. The Robusto size is perfect for a short smoke, with a light flavor of yeasty bread and almond. Unlike some other mild-light cigars, these won't dry your mouth out, yet perfect with a morning cup of coffee or with friends at a card game (an advantage here because they won't make the room spin and throw off your game).”
SL of ELMWOOD PARK, IL
“Graycliff G2 bought the sampler pack on sale, best purchase yet, with a month or 2 of humi time. Core flavors are of Cream, Leather, and Sweet Nuttiness. Medium finish. Flawless construction. Perfect easy draw, no touch ups required, even burn. Great mild cigar in the AM. Would try the Gurkha Elegance, Park Avenue, and Castlehall if you like cream and leather. I rate G2 an easy 89”
VF of margate, FL
“Am excellent smoke! Mild and smooth without over powering sweetness and a real ciger taste. Great balance!”
DT of Toms River, NJ
“After a rum tasting & cigar rolling at the Graycliff I knew I had found the perfect brand for me. True to what they say every cigar is perfect. I bought a box of theses and just love them. I know it's not their top of the line cigar, but for the price, they are just perfect. These cigars are a great smoke, working out in the yard or just hanging out with your friends. The smooth draw and great aroma makes them a wonderful cigar. I will not hesitate to buy more, box or mazo doesn't matter to me.”
SR of JACKSONVILLE, FL
“This is a great cigar for the price. I smoke on average 3-4 cigars a day so I am constantly searching for a quality cigar at a good price and this is currently on the top of my list. ”
JH of Sioux Falls, SD
“A few years ago I was likely only one of a few buying these little gems but apparently the whole world has discovered the incredible bargain and delicious taste of the G2. I always keep 15 or 20 around for those gatherings around the firepit with my buddies. I used to pay over $8 a stick for other brands that didn't quite honestly match the flavor of this sub $3 stick. It's my go-to smoke and pairs great with pretty much whatever you have to drink.”
CS of LAS VEGAS, NV
“Always a great mild smoke.”
DM of DANVILLE, CA

Graycliff 'G2'

Posted by Steve R

Finding a mild-bodied cigar with substance can be tough. Tougher still is finding a mild-bodied handmade with enough gusto to rival the likes of Ashton and Davidoff, without the hefty price tag. Well, one has arrived from the most unlikely of sources: Graycliff.

First some info on Graycliff. This Bahamas-based factory is tiny, housing a mere dozen Cuban-born rollers that – combined – craft just a couple thousand cigars each day. A drop in the bucket compared to a brand like Macanudo, where daily production is well over 100,000 cigars. These rollers were trained by none other than the late Avelino Lara, the Cuban-born cigar legend known best for creating the original Cuban Cohiba. To this day, Graycliff utilizes the rarest, aged tobaccos in uber-small-batch fashion to craft some of the world’s most prestigious blends and priciest cigars. A veritable breeding ground for luxury, including award-winning cigars ranked among the world’s finest.

Enter Graycliff ‘G2,’ the factory’s pioneer blend into the realm of mild-bodied boutique handmades. Each cigar is seamless in appearance with a light, chocolate brown hue. The blend is comprised of Connecticut wrappers grown under the natural valley mists of Ecuador and aged, Cuban-seed long-fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican. The aroma is soft but pleasant – some barnyard, but mostly sweet tobacco and cedar.

Off the bat, the smoke is notably rich and creamy in nature. Very creamy, in fact. The smoke is thick and heavy, leaving a velvety texture on the palate with each puff. The aroma is toasty and woodsy, enjoyable. After a few minutes I get into the meat of the cigar, and pick up a distinct doughiness, like baked bread....something I have only found in one other cigar – that I can recall. I love this nuance, and if you read through my past reviews you’ll know what I am talking about. It’s coupled with a toasty, nutty note from the Ecuadorian wrapper and a rich, leathery flavor from the Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Dominican tobaccos lend a sweet tobacco flavor that complements these unique flavors quite nicely. For a mild-bodied cigar, the ‘G2’ is complex....these flavors are not subtle, nor are they overpowering. And the best part is, they are presented throughout the entire smoke in a balanced and soothing fashion. This truly is a full-flavored, mild-bodied cigar with rich, satisfying qualities....but one that’s mellow enough for anytime enjoyment. The bouquet does not get harsh or grow more intense at any point during the burn. There are no twists or turns....just a solid, straightforward cigar that’s flavorful from start to finish.

I am impressed and – to be honest – surprised. Many mild-bodied cigars are just that: mild airballs with nothing more than tobacco flavors going on, which is why I lean more towards medium and full-bodied blends. This is not one of them, and considering the price per box I can easily find myself adding Graycliff to my regular rotation – something I never thought I’d say.

Graycliff 'G2'

Thank goodness for cheapskates like us, yeah, that means you and me there kid-o.  The chieftains at Graycliff rarely feast on our hard-earned dollars.  $300 for a box of cigars...whoa sonny....that just ain't in my appetite of daily cigar pleasures.  I think they finally realized that the bargain barrel, odd-lot shoppers just won't shell out that kind of mortgage payment on cigars.  Enter the everyman's Graycliff, the new 'G2'.  OK, it's not exactly new, but I finally ponied up the guts to try what many have termed "Graycliff's lower-end cigar".  Call me a sissy, worse things have touched my lips, but I simply didn't want to tempt my delicate palate with a potential atrocity that would scar me for life. 

I picked up a 5-er of the Toros, and they look pretty darn scrumptious.  A beautiful Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper (but to the less-than-skilled master-magician hairy Gonz eyeball, sure looks like a true Connecticut to me).  Firm in the fingertips, a quick clip and light jumpstarted my newest carnival ride.  Immediately, I'm intrigued by a peppery and lingering finish which exploded on the front tongue, very surprising from what I thought would be an uber-mild powder puff.  I then expected it to disappear within a few draws, but it didn't.  I'm two full ash-drops in (each about 3/4" - not bad, eh?) and the finish continues to linger.  The smoke is mild, no doubt, and with a firm draw there's very little smoke to infect my precious new office space.  No doubt it's chock full of mild Dominican tobaccos, a touch of seco thrown in perhaps, and a sliver of Nicaraguan richness to provide a little extra body.  Overall though, a touch above uber-mild, but not much, thanks to the spice that keeps it interesting for a solid 45 minutes....a perfect anytime cigar.

The chalky white ash and perfectly even burn are pluses, while the draw is indeed firm, not vein-popping, I like smoke surrounding me and I need to draw pretty hard to get that smoke ring around my noggin.  I think these would be better served if a touch on the under-humidified side.  Completely unintrusive, this could be smoked in nearly any company.  My Graycliff budget may indeed be established, a definite inclusion in my bursting humidor of cheapskate favorites.  At $2.50 to $3.00 per stick, these qualify as a new fixture.

Light'em up,

- Gonz

Graycliff G2

Posted by Jeff K

I’ve burned through most of the regular Graycliff lines (Professionale, Original, Crystal, Espresso, et al) and after each one, I kicked my self for dropping upwards of $20 on just one cigar (I know - I should have learned my lesson after the first one, but I’m an optimist). Don’t get me wrong, their stuff is not bad, and if I paid $5-8 I would be thrilled…but $20+, c’mon! So while I’m not normally a huge supporter of Graycliff, the new and improved Graycliff G2 definitely piqued my interest. Dude…a $3 Graycliff, that’s what I’m talking about! Yes, you read that right; we’re rolling them out here at CI for just $59.99 per box of 20. So at a price I can actually stomach, I figured I would give Graycliff’s newest offering a whirl.

Graycliff G2 features a Connecticut-seed wrapper grown in the fertile soils of Ecuador. The wrapper is slightly spotty, but it has an attractive, golden tan color with a smooth appearance and a nice sheen of oil. And unlike some of the other Graycliffs I’ve dealt with, G2 is firm and well filled. Inside, lies an aged two-country filler blend from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Pre-light, this thing looks decent and has an enjoyably mellow smell, enticing enough for me.

After lighting, I’m pleasantly surprised. This cigar is smooth. It’s fairly mild, but the smoke just rolls off the tongue. The flavor is crisp, with notes of cream, cedar and a nice sweetness completed by an extraordinarily clean finish. And there’s some richness in the aroma, which adds to the experience. As it burned it didn’t change much, straightforward and satisfying all the way down. Throughout, it burned straight, but a bit quicker than I prefer.

Overall, Graycliff G2 was enjoyable. I can’t see it winning any awards, but I could see myself burning one fairly often. A well-made, milder offering at a solid price. And if you’re into this sort of thing…your friends will probably think you spent top dollar on them.
