That’s right, George Rico’s Miami S.T.K. is an all-American puro, and is the first release from his George Rico S.T.K. Miami line. That means this handmade literally burns red, white, and blue. From the silky Connecticut wrapper leaf, and Connecticut binder, to the fillers from Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Kentucky. The whole shebang is from right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. This recipe results in a bouquet featuring unique notes of molasses and vanilla, along with welcomed hints of spice. You'll even notice a tick of smokiness....that’s the fire-cured Kentucky making its presence known. It might sound like a handmade only for the adventurous, but thanks to a pleasant medium-bodied profile, and a well-balanced character, a lot of people are going to flock to this one.
I would like to see what a little age —maybe six months to a year— will do for the George Rico American Puros, but so far I have been totally unable to keep my hands off these things for more than a couple weeks! They're THAT good. At the present time, there is nothing else in the cigar world quite like them.

My goto morning smoke

Love this cigar. If you're looking for a smooth, creamy, cool smoke, this is it. It goes great with whiskey or a good root beer. Perfect for an early morning smoke. I'd recommend this to anyone.
