G.A.R. is a medium to full-bodied, full-flavored treat from George Rico that captures the bold nuances of his earlier creations, including Gran Habano and the top-rated 3 Siglos. Each cigar is carefully hand-crafted using beautiful Ecuadorian Corojo wrappers and a vintage (but robust) mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Construction is top-notch: the cigar is heavy in the hand and boasts a lovely Spanish box-press finish. The smoke is rich with roasted coffee flavors supported by a creamy core of tasty tobacco flavors. Smooth down to the nub, G.A.R. becomes more intense throughout the burn, becoming quite complex and ultimately satisfying.
I ordered some a few years back. They are a refreshingly different taste from other cigars.
Unfortunately for me I can't pull out the fancy flavors.
You know what I mean here. I can't discern Oak, Chocolate, toast, espresso, tartar sauce, hamburger, pizza, and all the other flavors the "experts" can.
I can only taste "Tobacco" and these are tops!!!

I found this one through a Gran Habano sampler. Very happy with it so far. I have had two thus far and each has burned perfectly with great draws. Definitely consider this a medium cigar, rich with great flavors. Smoked it down to the nub…great to the end.

This is a great cigar! CI shows it as a Med-Full flavor cigar, I would rate it more on the medium side. It's very smooth and pleasant to smoke... Really one of my favorite cigars! My last order had a few that were on the dry side, cracking a peeling as I cut and smoked them. Otherwise I would have rated it 5-Stars!
