Graycliff. A name synonymous with top-notch boutique handmades. Crafted in true small-batch fashion, by a handful of elite rollers, each and every cigar bearing the Graycliff name is a masterpiece in its own right. In fact, few can hold a candle to the methods and traditions contained within the factory's walls. But this here, is no doubt Graycliff's finest creation to date.
The Graycliff 30th's piece de resistance is the genuine 30-year old African Cameroon wrapper. Painstakingly aged for over three decades, this stunning leaf is nothing short of a work of art itself. But there's more to this succulent creature than just a vintage wrapper. Perfectly nestled beneath this extensively aged leaf awaits a 3-country blend of impressive long-fillers hailing from the Dominican, Nicaragua, and Honduras. This remarkable bouquet is tied together by a bold San Andres binder. Upon taking flame to foot, the real fireworks begin. A mellow barrage of chewy, soft notes coat the palate in striking fashion. Nutty, creamy, and slightly sweet, the 30-year inches toward a medium-bodied profile that only gets better with each satisfying and remarkable puff. Oh yes, epic indeed, this handmade should be savored....slowly.
