When it comes to vintage, well-aged blends, Gran Habano Gran Reserva #3 2008 takes the cake. Vintage tobaccos and nearly 5-years of post-roll aging combine to create a refined, well-balanced experience that's luxurious from start to finish. If you've ever wanted to taste tobaccos with over 10 years of total aging, this one's begging to be added to your collection.
Utilizing an 8-year-old Habano wrapper and 7-year-old binder from Gran Habano's family's farm in Nicaragua plus a blend of 7 and 8-year-aged long-fillers from Colombia and Nicaragua, Gran Reserva 2008 delivers a bold yet polished experience. Additionally, the cigars we're rolled back in 2008, adding an additional 5 years of age to the already vintage tobaccos. Time does indeed work magic, as this combination presents a highly-flavorful profile that's rich, notably smooth, and layered with notes of nuts, earth, spices, cedar, and a touch of honey on the finish. Impressive to say the least, this one was no doubt worth the wait.
Due to the vintage nature of this cigar, supplies are extremely limited. Only 1,200 boxes were made in each size and once they're gone, they're gone forever.
These cigars are a grand treat with superb flavors and thick clouds of smoke.
Great burn and draw that is close to perfect using a V cutter.
When I found out they were going away there was no decision to make.
I grabbed a case and stored them away in one of my humidors.
These beauties will be pulled out in January when my next grand child is born.
A truly great smoke that lasts a decent amount of time
