The epitome of 'boutique'.
The Graycliff name represents one of the industry’s most prestigious brands in handmade cigars. This veritable ultra-premium is carefully hand-crafted by a tiny team of 12 master-rollers, under the strict and watchful eye of Avelino Lara - the genius behind Cuba’s original Cohiba. Made in true boutique fashion, each Graycliff cigar is composed of exquisite, patiently aged tobaccos and offers the highest standard in quality, taste, and satisfaction.
Often compared to the beloved Ashton VSG, the Crystal Series is a bold, medium to full-bodied gem. Rated 90+ on more than one occasion, in addition to “Best of the Best” honors from Robb Report, this flavorful lovely combines a thick and oily Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper with a complex mixture of supremely aged long-fillers from Brazil, Nicaragua, and Honduras. As an added bonus, a rare strain of Grecian tobacco was carefully blended into this cigar, adding a lovely spice to the fray. After significant box-aging, the Crystal Series blankets the palate with bold, yet elegant flavors, including leather, earth, pepper, and a sweet aftertaste that complements the cigar’s rich core perfectly.
This just might be Graycliff’s most sophisticated handmade.
The Graycliff Crystal received a well deserved '90' point rating, noting:
"A soft, oily pyramid with a loose, easy draw. It has earthy notes of honey, caramel and espresso, with a long spicy finish. A medium-bodied cigar that will improve with age."
