Introducing the new G.A.R. Opium by George Rico - a limited-edition release from one of the most creative minds in the industry. The name may throw you for a loop, but rest assured the cigars are legit and completely legal. Hailing from George Rico's boutique factory in Honduras, each Opium comes packed with rich, savory tobaccos. At play is a reddish brown Nicaraguan Habano Corojo hybrid wrapper, boasting an oily sheen and generous tooth. Nestled beneath this leaf awaits a Nicaraguan binder hugging a top-secret proprietary blend of aged long-fillers. You're left with smooth yet assertive medium to full-bodied smoke, brimming with hints of cedar, leather, spices, coffee, and a dash of pepper. It's safe to say that Opium demands your attention, and it's well deserved.
“Smoking one now that has been resting for over a year. Did not think very much of them after I first received them but this one is great. It has reaaaaly mellowed out quite a bit. I can retro hale the whole draw through the nose without a touch of harshness or ammonia. Not a bad cigar fresh but significantly better with a years rest.”
