Gran Reserva is back - bigger and bolder than ever.
Gran Habano Gran Reserva #5 2010 continues the tradition of the well-aged Gran Habano Gran Reserva line. This version was rolled three years ago - back in 2010 - using a rich blend of vintage tobaccos aged 7 to 8 years prior. But what's most different about this installment is the strength, a full-bodied handmade with plenty of power. Additionally, some chunky big-ring size options are present and relatively affordable considering the healthy amount of costly vintage tobaccos rolled within.
To craft this blend, an 8-year-aged Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, a 7-year-aged Nicaraguan binder, and an 8-year-aged all Nicaraguan long-filler blend are used. This combination offers a rich and hearty smoke that's chock-full of spices, earth, espresso, and wood. Mellowed slightly by time, but still safely in the fuller-bodied spectrum, Gran Habano Gran Reserva #5 displays an elegant smoothness backed by ample flavor.
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.
“Wow, now this is an interesting cigar. The only cigar I have ever experienced where the great flavor became apparent during the initial light up. Before the thing is fully lit, you can already tell that this is going to be an excellent smoke. And, it really is. The flavors are very complex and robust. Kind of a moldy taste, but in a very good way- that's the best way I can describe it. The construction of these is excellent, too. This is really an outstanding smoke. It will always have a place in my humidor from now on.”
