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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
