A tasty, powerhouse blend.

G.A.R. is a medium to full-bodied, full-flavored treat from George Rico that captures the bold nuances of his earlier creations, including Gran Habano and the top-rated 3 Siglos. Each cigar is carefully hand-crafted using beautiful Ecuadorian Corojo wrappers and a vintage (but robust) mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Construction is top-notch: the cigar is heavy in the hand and boasts a lovely Spanish box-press finish. The smoke is rich with roasted coffee flavors supported by a creamy core of tasty tobacco flavors. Smooth down to the nub, G.A.R. becomes more intense throughout the burn, becoming quite complex and ultimately satisfying.

I don't find high-priced cigars
I don't find high-priced cigars any better than the lower priced ones I buy, such as the GAR cigars I buy. I had some Cuban origin cigars on a business trip to China (China is still okay with Havana) and they were good, but no better than the GAR's. I know I will probably be beaten to death with a humidor for saying so, but it is true. Same with wine. I took a month long back packing trip to France when I was younger, and the wine there was no better than the wines made in California.

Lots of Flavor
The GAR robusto is good. Burn and draw were fine. Burns even. Full body yet very smooth. Lots of nice flavors. I tasted tangy coffee with toasty nuttiness and spice. Worth trying.

Iz a No Good
These cigars were awful. The construction was good, I hated the flavor.

Not the GARS I knew
A few years ago I enjoyed GAR. These are not the same cigar - loose roll, slightly sour, sideways burn. Disappointing.

GAR Cigars?
Could the artist's initials be more apropos? Taste sticks I smoked well beyond the ring. I've yet to find the bitter end... Cheap at twice the price!

Very good cigar
Medium strength, good draw and burn, tastes of coffee and cocoa. I would definitely purchase again.

Not quite what I was hoping for but an average everyday cigar. Worth the money.

Good cigar but not my Cup of Tea. I prefer real dark full flavor. My ability to taste has faltered over the years and I like the real spicy Dark wrappers.

Decent for the price
Good burn. Not tightly rolled but acceptable. Cover was veiny, taste was woodsy.

A serious no BS Keeper
I have to admit this is a solid tasty keeper for my Humi. Great construction and burn. oily wrapperleaf, tastes like espresso and leather. Quality at a decent price...

Very nice cigar
Burns even, slow and long. Great flavor. Wish I would have bought a couple more bundles while they were on sale!
Customer Testimonials
A very smooth and tasty cigar. Nice balance of flavor and aroma. It burns slow and even. Nice cigar for everyday smokes. Enjoyed it to the nub.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
I was encouraged to try this 'gar (pardon the pun!) by George Rico himself, wow! I'm glad he did! I love Gran Habano to begin with, and this beauty did not disappoint! I'll be getting more of these for sure! Thanks George!

Has a "different" taste that is exceptional!
CS of Rock Springs, WY
Sparked one up last night. Had been smoking a Joya de Nicaragua Clasico earlier that day. Compared to the former cigar, the G.A.R. was less acidic in taste and was not accompanied by a creeping nicotine buzz. I agree with the previous comment that the G.A.R. pre-light aroma is quite faint. I thought the cigar had a slight peaty flavor that I tend to associate with Honduran cigars. I (like others) thought this cigar was milder in flavor than the Gran Habanos I've tried. The construction seemed right on and the draw was just about perfect. Nice looking cigar, too. I smoked it about one third the way through and let it go out. I will relight it tonight on the drive home from work. I enjoyed this cigar and also agree with others that it would likely age quite nicely, though there's no need to wait if you are hankering for a decent tasting mild cigar right off the truck.
AF of Bloomington, IN
G.A.R is an excellent cigar! The price is a steal on the quality and taste. Very toasty oaky flavors, some spice, and some natural sweet tobacco flavors. They should age very, very nicely but are actually great right off the truck. The next time they pop up I'll have to grab some more.
GR of Sterling, VA
A nice cigar with a pleasant flavour, fairly even burn and a faint but nice pre-light aroma. I certainly enjoyed the cigar, but would never pay retail for it, but the 'club' price makes it attractive.
MC of MLeesburg, VA
Good cigar. Has a very classic cigar smell and proceeds to get better near the end. Its not as good or as strong as the gran habano 3 siglos or corojo but I will probably buy it again.
I really like this cigar. I kept getting a sweet "cola" note with this one for about the first third of the cigar. It gets stronger but stayed smooth all the way to the nub. Towards the nub you will get this dark leathery taste that is really nice. Very good product, I will be buying another box.
DR of Casper, WY
I have smoke about a dozen of these and they just don't do it for me. Not that they are bad, they are a decent cigar but for the money I would pick up something else.
GS of Fleetwood, PA
I just had my first coffee flavored chocolate bar this morning. No! wait a minute, that was a G.A.R. cigar. WoW! what a darn fine full flavored and smooth cigar. Top notch construction, good burn, and smooth draw. Great cigar
