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.
The highly sought after Chateau Grand Cru Series easily ranks among the industry’s most luxurious cigars. It’ll captivate you from first glance, thanks to one of the prettiest Costa Rican wrappers you’ll ever cross. This oily, chestnut-hued leaf conceals a superior blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Costa long-leaf tobaccos secured by a flavorful Ecuadorian binder. Expect a rush of toasty, woody nuances supported by earth and a subtle (but savory) touch of black cherry. The finish is sweet, and lingers long on the palate, completing a wonderful sensation for the senses.
In addition to a solid ‘90’ rating, the Graycliff Chateau Grand Cru has been named one of Cigar Aficionado’s Top 50 Cigars. Here’s what they had to say: "Dark and veiny, this cigar smokes well. It has some black cherry flavors, with wheat and anise on the palate. A medium-bodied smoke."
“(Graycliff Chateau Gran Cru Series)First of all, if I were to list all the flavors I picked up on as this cigar shifted from layer to layer of deliciousness, I would only be repeating what is said in CI's description of this cigar. Perfect burn, impeccable draw, and enough flavor to keep me interested down to the very nub, gorgeous wrapper, perfect construction. This is my FAVORITE cigar. 94/100.”

“Truly a great cigar. I love the salomon seris. I have had an impossible time finding more of them. I have smoked two of these before and have to say the second one I was disappointed. These cigars are simply the best when aged for a While. The second one I bought I picked up at a local shop and smoked. It wasnt terrible but not near as great as the first one I ever had. I could pick up so many flavors off of this it was incredible. This cigar would go great with a wine with cherry, or a berry type of flavor. Truly remarkable!”

“This cigar is in my top 5 hands down. The way the flavors transition from one to the other to the other to the other is just mind blowing. Don't let the price scare you away from this cigar, it is a must try for any cigar smoker.”
