Graycliff 30-Year Vintage

Glorious 30-year old wrapper.

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.

Relax and Explore Nuance
Graycliff 30-year suited my taste. I slowed down, and relaxed my facial muscles (don’t roll your eyes) and just paced my smoke. I usually light up and do a “soak ’n’ smoke” in my hot tub to really explore the development of a cigar as it burns through various stages of burn. The Graycliff was mild and tasty to start, and developed to a medium-mellow-soft at midway, to slight peppery finish. I try to avoid peppery/heavy as it is a bit overpowering for my individual palette. That is why I dinged this smoke a single star off five. The 30-year wrapper is a delicate encasement and cannot stand even slight abuse whether from mishandling, improper cutting, or poor humidification conditions. If well-treated, these cigars burn beautifully. Bought at a stunningly low C.I. price, I was able to sample 15 of these nice smokes, and would not hesitate to replace all that I have smoked ifthat deal ever rolls around again.

A good cigar at a good price.
Medium body with full flavor provides a pleasant experience.

A wonderful smoke ruined by constant unraveling
Flavor is delicious. Burn is consistant. Everything in that regard is exactly what you'd want. The problem, however, lies with construction. The moment you cut the cigar, the whole thing wants to unravel. It happened with every single stick I smoked, and nothing I tried would ever fix the problem. Which is a real shame, because the cigar tastes wonderful. I wish I could buy them again, but I can't when they all fall apart.

A NICE MILD CIGAR.
A nice mild cigar that's probably between a 3 !/2 star really. A good everyday smoke that I tried due to a 15 cigar value deal. I may try again but usually stick to my favorites, Baccarat, Perdomo Lot 23 and CI Legends Drew Estate/Copper Label.

Average
Nothing special here. The Graycliff 30 - Year Vintage PG was just a "average" stick. Average in taste, average in draw, uneven burn. An "average" overall experience. Not a bad smoke for the CI sale price, but if I had paid the so-called "retail" price stated, I would have been looking for a refund.

Not worth it!
I've had 3 of these now in my samplers. NONE of them were good. Rolled TOO TIGHT, wrapper unraveled, couldn't get a good draw. Tried a nice small cut, then tried to progressively cut a little bit further to get a better draw...nothing. NOT great at all...and to make sure the first wasn't a dud, I kept the next two in the humidor for over 2 months. Do NOT waste your money on these. As hard as I had to draw, the flavor wasn't even there. What a waste!

Eh.
Kind of bitter and stale. I'm going to let them sit at the bottom of the humi. Maybe another year and they'll be better.

top notch
I smoke mild cigars. The 30 year vintage is expensive. It may have been the best cigar that I have smoked.

A seductive lady for sure
Surprising Smoke! I usually go for the "manly" sticks, with bold roaring flavor and intense spice, but I got 2 of these in a sampler and I have to say I am changing my mind on what I prefer. This is a cigar to smoke in a slow contemplative setting, the back porch under a full moon or with a beautiful woman who doesn't mind a man enjoying a good cigar and an after dinner nite cap. Upon lighting this beauty you get a generous plume of smoke that never quits. When you take a draw, you get smooth silk that draws you in like the seduction of an elegant lady with a bit of naughty on her mind. In fact I would say this cigar is more "feminine" in feel---sexy and lurid with something that draws you in. Go easy and gentle to get the best experience. I am not one who detects all the flavors described in a usual cigar review, but I DO know a good cigar that puts a little smile on your face and an ahhhhhh feeling in your heart. This is it. I did get hints of fresh hay and toasted barley, and it does pair well with a mild single malt scotch. I am giving it only 4 stars because it turned slightly bitter on the last 3rd, but for an hour it was a happy place. And I would buy again.

Uneven Burn. Cigars were Fresh. The flavors were difficult to detect as it tasted more of a hot burn.

Graycliff 30 Year Vintage PG
The Graycliff 30 Year Vintage is one of my favorite cigars. They are bit too pricey to purchase anywhere near full price. I prefer the 6X52 torpedo size but the PG was available at reasonable sale price. Great cigar, burns even, the 80's Cameroon wrapper taste awesome. Great story behind the Graycliff Brand and the history of Avalino Lara.

Not worth it
Beautiful cigar to look at, has a tendency to split the wrapper after lighting. Mild smooth taste, but not very satisfying or eventful. Just smoked my last one this morning with strong coffee and was disappointed. Been in my humi for at least 6 months. If you like mild cigars with a decent flavor profile you might like it, but for the prices I will never have any more of them.

A True Vintage
Excellent well-balanced smoke which burns slow and evenly. Tastes of nutmeg and cinnamon permeates throughout this cigar leaving a pleasant semi-sweet aftertaste. Considering the price, I just had to try these when they were offered on sale for $37.50 for a package of 10. One of the best purchases on CI I have ever made and I have made a lot. Will definitely buy these again even if not on sale again. Worth the price of admission!

Wowza wowza wowza!
Excellence personified! This cigar teases you as it hides its intent at first igniting and slowly reveals itself inch by inch until you are looking around to see if someone like Ashton Kutcher has just puncked you. This cigar has mild to medium start with a hint of pepper, nutty, coco and light spiciness in the final third. There is a creaminess that follows this cigar throughout its slow burning process and you should make sure you allow yourself a good 90 to 120 mins. for these beauties. P.S. Make sure you start with a clean palate to truly enjoy this cigar and it can be enjoyed anytime time of day.

Awesome, but beware!
Well constructed smooth well-balanced cigar. I've been enjoying cigars for 20 years, and this is on my top 10. However, a word of caution, DO NOT buy the deeply discounted version that comes in cellophane bundles of 5 which is [deceptively] marketed as exactly the same cigar; this version is, in my opinion, is absolutely NOT the same as the boxed.

A great, smooth smoke.
I often find medium bodied cigars lacking in flavor but this has a very rich, complex taste.

I thought that I was getting a better cigar for the cost, but I was wrong. This is a cheap cigar wrapped as a Cadillac.
Customer Testimonials
If you love mild, slow burning cigars this is it. I smoke nothing but Graycliff cigars. This is by far my favorite!
Just finished the Graycliff 30-Year Vintage. Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad either! I would rather smoke Hemingway or Oliva Cameroon. The wrapper is very fragile, but it smoked fine; just no WOW factor.
I grabbed 5 of these with a "Build Your Own" sampler. The idea of the 30 year old wrapper was appealing. I figured it was an experience not to be missed and getting them for approx $3 a piece versus $15-$17 for the PG... it was a no brainer. As others have mentioned the wrapper and construction were excellent, although one of them unraveled like a spool of twine. However, as others have noted, the flavor was nearly non-existent. I usually like to pair a good-great cigar with a quality Single Malt. This might pair better with a white wine or light beer. Not my kind of smoke and not worth the full price by a long-shot.
Heard some unfavorable reviews on this so when I picked it up as part of a sampler I kind of wrote it off. After trying it I can tell you that any bad reviews must come because of the expensive price. This is a fantastic stick that gets better with every puff. Didn't love it at first, but halfway through I got a flavor and a draw comparable to any of the best cigars I've ever had.
Personally, I enjoy the creamy flavor and am thankful it's not overpowered by a more complex smoke. This cigar is a real treat, and I smoked mine down to the nub until it was too hot to handle. I will definitely purchase more.
It is all about pairing this cigar properly. Some cigar smokers just do not get that. Pair this one with a hoppy beer and you will be overwhelmed with joy =) If you are not into hoppy beer or something strong tasting to bring out the flavors, then stay away from this cigar. I tried 2 of these so far and just ordered another 20 because they were that good.
Plenty of smoke, perfect construction and burn...if only the flavor matched these qualities....picked up a bit of a nut flavor and cream but overall it was bland. Considering that for the same price I can get an Armada or Reconquista which are both much more flavorful (IMO), this cigar simply does not live up to the price tag.
Was privileged to pick up a 5 pack in store on a clearance sale for $20! Wow this sick is a pure treat! What an amazing mild to medium flavor that just evolves as you smoke it. Consistent burn throughout. You can't go wrong here, great smoke and a great value for your money when you want to splurge . :)
This is one unique tasting stick. Be prepared to be patient. With this one, the complexity of flavor builds throughout the smoke. It started out with almost no finish. It did however have a very distinct and enjoyable flavor from the beginning to the end that is experienced just after I exhausted the smoke. This was an unique taste I have never found in any other cigar. But strangely that flavor fades within seconds somehow continues to linger as one of those memory flavors that roll around in the mind even after the taste is long gone. At the start of the smoke this is about the only taste there was but from about 1/3 in that began to change and many complex flavors began to abound. The look, draw and burn were near perfect. This cigar starts out very mild with not much going for it. But that soon will change. It ends up in my opinion at the upper end of medium. For me the flavors changed drastically numerous times throughout the smoke. More so than any cigar I have ever smoked. It is expensive but rare only 500 boxes they say. Enjoy while they last.
....Construction is excellent on them I must say, but nothing for the taste buds. I'd compare these too a factory made cigar to be honest....
