Conquer your humidor!
From the uber-popular Gran Habano Vintage 2002 to the rich and spicy Gran Habano Corojo #5, George Rico’s famous brand has been pleasing cigar connoisseurs across the country for years now. And with La Conquista, he loads one more awesome blend into the chamber. Sure to earn Rico even more fans, each La Conquista is handmade with the utmost care and precision.
From first glance, this cigar is dressed to kill. Remove the cedar outer wrap, and you’ll find a lush and oily Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. On the first few effortless puffs, there’s plenty of spice and pepper, but as the cigar progresses things mellow out, with cedar, leather, and natural tobacco sweetness entering the mix. The tri-country filler blend (Nicaraguan, Colombian, and Costa Rican) keeps things enticingly complex, and the everyday asking price is just the icing on the cake. Jump on this one swiftly, lads.
Great news, Gran Habano La Conquista has received a well-deserved 90-rating. The review noted, "Firm to the touch and solidly packed with tobacco. The definitive core of earth and leather is balanced by sweeter touches of vanilla and maraschino cherries."
