Pinar del Rio Habano Sun Grown

A ultra-flavorful boutique handmade.

Pinar del Rio is made in a smaller factory in the Dominican Republic. But unlike many of the neighboring factories, PDR cigars are loaded with flavor and boutique charm.

The Habano Sun Grown utilizes an oily, reddish-brown Habano Sun Grown wrapper from the Dominican Republic. Within, a rich Criollo '98 binder from the Dominican and a bold blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. The result is a full-bodied blend that's complex, refined, and layered with rich notes of earth, spices, cedar, coffee, and a hint of pepper on the finish.

A Good Cigar Worth Trying
I scored a 10 pack of PDR sungrown torpedos on sale here. It's a good cigar. Good construction. Easy draw. Slow cool and even burn. Medium body and gets smoother along the way. Tastes of cedar with hints of nut and pepper. Worth a try.

I'm going to show these "conesiuers" how to write a review. I won't say "mild to full bodied in taste" or "tastes ok" or the worst one "won't stay lit." If you can't light a cigar my boy, you got problems. IT'S THE WAY YOU'RE LIGHTING THESE-- IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. Obviously most of you smoke occasionally. Medium to full bodied -- nuts, hints of leather, coffee and red pepper on the retro hale with hints of anise(black liquorice) Score: 82 There. Was that so hard???

Unremarkable and risky
Okay cigar. Not a lot of flavor here. Almost connecticut'ish. Nice presentation, average construction. Consistent with other PDR cigars I've bought. However, my latest box of toros had beatle holes in 5-6 cigars. So, beware. CI of course made it right, but still a risk.

Smooth!
Got one of these in the PDR sampler. Would definitely purchase again. Super smooth, very mellow and decent burning. I assumed this was a mellow to medium.

Simply Disappointed
The first two cigars I smoked were very good however I was soon extremely disappointed. The next cigar had such a terrible draw that I cut it open and found huge stems! Additional cigars also had a difficult draw. Today I had a cigar which was the complete opposite. It was as if I was smoking air! Some of these cigars should have just been thrown out. I assume they were just poorly constructed. I would not purchase again!

I find them relatively mild and draws easily. Taste is a little better than average. Usually burns a little uneven. Overall a decent choice.

These cigars had a mid to full taste, however the burn wasn’t even, started to canoe on me half way through. Definitely not my preferred cigar but they’ll do for an everyday smoke. Will I order them again?, probably not.

Pretty good
There are several things that make a good cigar, draw, flavor, holding its ash, and lots of smoke. It has everything except lots of smoke. Which is almost non existent. Overall it's still pretty decent.

Great cigar for the price
I hesitated buying these because of the price but I’m so glad I did. I let them sit in my humidor for a few weeks first and I just smoked my second stick. The construction is solid. A few blemishes on the wrapper but no soft spots. Mild to medium in strength and very flavorful. Ash is light grey and fairly firm. Smoked them to the nub. Recommended.

Pinar Del Rio Box
The box seal was broken. Five of the cigars had cracks and peeling wrappers making them unsmokable. All cigars were very dried out. The others were OK after three or four days in my humidor with a mild flavor but a passable smoke. They required a little mending to prevent canoeing. Altogether a disappointing experience. On examination the box was broken at one corner which may have broken the seal. Packaging was rather poor.

Was an "ok" cigar. It is not disappointing, just doesn't burn the best. Can't beat the price. Good flavor with medium body. The wrap could be better. Good cigar to have a few beers with and hang with the boys around the fire pit.

Good cigar
Very good cigar. Medium heavy to heavy flavor profile and pairs great with an IPA or the usual scotch or bourbon. Has a bit of a bite on the exhale and is why I say it’a a heavier flavor profile.This box is about 1 year old and I’d say in about another year in the humidor, that edge will be taken off and will taste smoother.

Very uneven burn & several were too tight to draw. Spent more time with my lighter than smoking...

Good flavor and burn
Got these to see if it had what i really looked for. The burn is very good and even throughout the entire cigar. The flavor is more mild then I prefer but as a first cigar of the day it is very nice. For folks looking for nice flavor and not knock your head off then this cigar is right up there.

TK 6305 Pinar Del Rio Habano Sun Grown Robusto
I sampled one right out of the box, upon delivery, and found it a little sharp, the flavors had not softened in the box. These will be going down for a least three months, as with all Pinar Del Rio cigars, they do improve significantly with a little time in one's humidor.

Relaxing smoke
I'm surprised being asked to review. I'm not a sofisticated cigar smoker; don't have the ability to sort out different flavors. Just know this burns clean to end and I enjoy the smoke. Very relaxing.

Great for the Price
This started out very good. Deep notes of tobacco, and a bit of wood. Then it just stayed there, no flavor development past the tobacco and wood. Kind of one dimensional, but the price can’t be beaten. I will let them age a while and see how they develop.

Sun grown
Great smoke, this brand ranks up there as one of my favorites.Good flavor and burn threw out smoke.
4 out of 5
Give it a try!
The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is that the first stick I had, although it burned nice and even, seemed a bit softer or looser on the overall construction of the body. However, the flavor profile was a smooth mild stogie that's not overpowering in any way and would make a great compliment to any nice whiskey. I love sun grown stogies for their unique spicyness they often carry, and this one is probably one of the better one's I've had. Great overall value too!

Pretty good
Cigars arrived on time and in good shape like they always do from CI... But, I've only smoked 1 cigar so far so this might not be a completely fair review... It seemed to lean more on the mild side than I expected and I did have to relight it two or three times. It could be that they were "right off the truck" and weren't probably humidified so I'm letting them sit in my Humi before I smoke any more of them... They are absolutely fantastic when you consider the price (on sale). Not what you'd expect from a sun grown habano in terms of body and strength but by no means a bad smoke.

Wait For It
Patience Grasshopper! That's my advice for this stick. Stick em in your humi and forget about em for a couple months. If you're in to white pepper and cedar with great construction, even burn and good to great draw then you will like this stick. I'm getting 2 inch grey ashes with no relights. Patience is a virtue mis amigos!
5 out of 5
Solid smoke. One of my faves
This is a solid all-around cigar for people who like the spicy stuff. Smooth on the draw with a real grassy nutty note to it finished off with a peppery spice. Bought these when they were running a special and I have to say I got a steal.
5 out of 5
Highly underrated!
Not my first trip to the PDR rodeo, but when I saddled up with this Habano Sun Grown I had no idea I was in for such a ride! Earthy with subtle notes of cedar and very pronounced white pepper finish through the nose. Construction is up to code, and the effortless draw produces thick, satisfying plumes of smoke with a pleasant aroma for those second-handers who may be near. If I had my druthers, I'd rate this gem a solid 92. If you're hovering over the "add to cart" button, pull the trigger my friends.

It's an okay stick
I received this as part of a sampler pack, and though it wasn't a bad smoke, I was not impressed. First of all, don't buy into the hype of this website about the complexity of this blend; like the "Reserva Limitada", this was very one dimensional, though it did have a little more character to it. After the midway point, it became very difficult to keep it burning. I had this issue with the "Icon" and the "Reserva Limitada" as well, trying to extinguish itself out after only a 30-40 second rest. Overall, I feel like I got what I paid for; an okay stick at a good price point for the product, but I won't be buying it again.

Not Medium-Full
Could've held my breath for 60 seconds and gotten more satisfaction. Not sure why they're classified as medium-full. The only reason I gave it a second star is because I smoked the whole thing and it burned fine and never went out.

Bargains aren't always bargains
Got these on the cheap and I guess you get what you pay for. Starts good, but, none so far have stayed lit for the whole smoke. I've left these Pinar's in the humi for a couple months and still little improvement. Have enjoyed every other purchase from CI.

Disappointment...
This was a terrible disappointment. Any cigar in which you have to light more than once or twice is poorly constructed. The draw was unsatisfactory at best. I will definitely not recommend or purchase this cigar again. It's a shame that it has such high ratings.

Quite Unique Cigar !! !!
Got two 5 packs awhile back, I've smoked all but three, these are strangely likable cigars, the flavor is unlike anything I can truly describe, they're fairly robust smokes but sort of a " Musty " oddness about them, , , , , Not Bad----Just Uniquely Different to be sure ! ! ! I'll leave the last 3 in the humidor till maybe mid-latter May and see what my perception is then !! !!

Major disappointment
I ordered a box of the Toro's after being impressed with one I received as part of a sampler. I have to say that I was very disappointed, the draw is very hard to the point that they are almost unsmokeable. The wrappers are in terrible shape almost dry-rotted every one in the box has had major wrapper issues. This is the first Pinar del Rio cigar that has not been better than advertised. I will not buy these again
5 out of 5
wonderful cigar
I was higly impressed. I prefer full flavored cigars and this one is quite amazing. It has a smooth draw from start to finish. I will keep these in the humidor. They have a very rich yet mild taste perfect for thoes who like the full bodied flavor yet mild enough for those who grew up in swishers. Great for any occasion.
5 out of 5
Great Cigar!
PDR makes a lot of underrated and underpriced cigars. The sun grown in terms of flavor should easily be rated in the 90's. Rich, smooth, a little spice. The wrappers don't always hold up the greatest but it's a fantastic cigar.
Customer Testimonials
Sun Growns rule. I really like'em.
YES, YES...truly a beaut of a cigar. This cigar can go against Rocky Sun Grown. PDR keeps their brand with the best prices. This Sun Grown is a worthwhile smoke. Smooth, even and a sweet finish. It is my Sunday afternoon "go to" smoke.
This is my favorite PDR so far. Still have a few to smoke from some samplers I have laying around, but this stick really speaks to my palate. I was so impressed I kept the ring wrapper. I smoke a lot of cigars and rarely if ever do this. This company and this blend is on my radar now!
This is my all time favorite smoke. It is well balanced, has lots of flavor, burns well and good to the nub. It is rare to see these beauties go on sale but if they do, don't hesitate!
Quality and value in one of the best sun grown cigars. This cigar is on equal level to other sun grown cigars that are much more expensive!!
Wow, this could be my new favorite. Great flavor from start to finish. Steady burn, tight ash. Great smoke.
The batch of 60 gauge I am burning through has a thin wrapper that cracks a lot and also lacks the nice flavor of the smaller size I tried in a sampler..I'm disappointed.
Pinar del Rio Habano Sun Grown...First one was good, but one dimensional. Second one was bitter the last two inches....
This cigar came in a PDR TORO sampler. Unlike other reviews, I wasn't that impressed with the stick. For me, it burned uneven requiring several retouches. For my taste, it was a bit too bold. For the price, I guess it's a great deal, but if you don't care for it, it becomes somewhat irrelevant.
Smoking one now as I write this review; great cigar, lots or flavor, and no bad after taste. Very good!
The Liga Cubana #5 blend, in a torpedo shape, is a wonderfully medium to full bodied experience. PDR continues to impress with many of it's newer blends. The Sun Grown drapes a light brown Habano wrapper over a ligero blend of tobacco that scream earth & hardy tobacco flavors from pre-light right down to the nub. Tried two I got in a freebie last month & ordered up a ten pack of these soon after. Not as complex as many full bodied ligero cigars, still the HSG delivers clouds of thick white smoke & an even one hour burn. Flavors of anise & black tobacco persist throughout the burn, but are muted on the palate. Highly recommended & often available for under three bills a stogie, I give PDR HSG LC#5 a 4 1/2 out of 5 vitola rating. I am interested to try these in a smaller Corona size, where I believe they might be great little firecracker of a smoke!
This is a DAMM GOOD CIGAR! I'm usually a maduro man, but after smoking this Habano Sun Grown cigar I'll be keeping this in my humidor at all times. The only regret I have is I only bought one bundle.
Spicy well constructed cigar but rather one dimensional. Very front of the palate flavor. Didn't quell my craving in the least bit. I'm normally a maduro smoker and I like to try different cigars but I won't buy this one again.
This is one hell of a cigar. Burn line is a little wavy, but damn that flavor is top notch. Could smoke these all day every day.
A local BOTL & banter buddy traded me one of the PDR Sungrown torpedos .. first of all, I liked the way it looked, the colors in the label, the construction of the cigar, it's a beaut. I really didn't know what to expect, but the result is to make me take a closer look at the PDR line ... ended up getting a torpedo sampler with all 4 of the main PDR blends/wrappers ... I really liked them all ... so it depends on your taste buds/likes/dislikes and mood of the day as to which might be your favorite ... great cigars for the money. If I had to choose ... for its intensity, I like the Seleccion 2010 Reserva Limitada in the toro ... but I'm not always in the mood for that, (note: I did not experience the same strength in the torpedo from the sampler ... I don't know why but I found it pretty plain, maybe my taste buds were off or it needed more humidor time), the Oscuro, also was very good and probably next in intensity, but again sometimes one isn't looking for them ... I found the Sungrown to have that balance in a medium strength cigar with good flavor that kept my interest ... very pleasant to smoke (all have good burn/draw) ... I enjoyed it a lot ... Last night, I had the 4th of the line, the Clasico which is the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and it had good flavor without being strong ... I was surprised, I really wasn't expecting much (I was following the Seleccion 2010 Reserva Limitada toro) ... it had more flavor than I expected ... and was very good ... So, in conclusion, I think it's worth trying every cigar blend in the line to find out which one you like, your palate my be different ... I liked them all, but could see that which one I would choose would depend on how I felt and the circumstances of the day and time. Very good cigars for the money.
reminds me of a cohiba siglo III i had about six years ago. fantastic smoke! got the 20 torpedos for 40 bucks! I should've worn a ski mask when i ordered these...
Just finished one of these cigars. I really liked the Oscuro and read that the Sun Grown Habano was supposed to have more body. I actually found that the SGH had less body. It also had too easy of a draw for my liking and the flavor just wan't there. An enjoyable cigar anyway, but I think I'll stick to Maduros.
Just to put my money where my mouth stated...two references below und JH Mena Ar, I picked up a Joes Daily of 10 torpedos for $25.00...not 31.50 as usual...but I made it 4 bundles equaling 100 cigars for less than a box usually is....again, this is one of the best cigars I've run into in my 40 plus years of smoking all kinds of premium's, dummies, and higher priced cigars...watch for these and snatch them up when you can! It is one of the rare cigars that you can smoke right after you receive them shipped in bundle (through no fault of CI and humidity in shipping)...Anyone reading this....please send an email to CI...ask them to ship a humi pillow for one dollar more in your order...it will really help in transit I think...what do you think, CI? warmly, John Boy H.
Helluva good cigar! Smooth & clean from beginning to end. Burned evenly with nice ash. Nice creamy finish. A steal for the price.
I received one of the PDR Sungrown(Toro), about three months ago...wanted to smoke it right away but waited...did so today...honestly, if you stacked it up against the RP Sun Grown Toro, you would have an issue in deciding which is best! Excellent draw, no relight, beautiful aroma, no veins, three ashes and it took 2 hours...oh, had to feed the chickens...had to relight the last one fith of it using the prescribed procedure for relight that CI suggests...no bitterness...took off like a kite again! For about $25 less for a box of RP Sungrown, you cannot go wrong! By the by, I think this is pound for pound, the best Habano Sungrown Wrapper out there that PDR uses!
This cigar was well constructed and smoked well down to the nub! The draw produced nice smoke production and flavor was consistant and pleasant! I enjoyed this cigar and look forward to trying other PDR variations! This cigar was medium in strength and body and will appeal to main stream cigar smokers. Nice cigar!
WOW I cant believe these cigars have stayed under the radar for so long. The Sun grown pinar cigars are great premium cigars that could sell for $10 each! I have tried all of the Pinar del rio cigars and they are all very good well made cigars that burn perfectly. One day i think these cigars will sky rocket in popularity and price just like the opus x did. I would rate the sun grown a 92 and it reminds me of the rocky patel sun grown but it taste a little bit better and cost half the price. Buy these cigars now before more people find out about them and the price goes up.
This is a very nice cigar, especially for the price. Very smooth and balanced with great flavors. A medium plus to me. Well worth a place in your rotations.
Got a 10 pack of the torpedo's for 2 bucks a piece. Great flavor, beautiful wrapper, an unbelievable deal at $2 per cigar. Will definitely try other Pinar del Rio cigars
Got a 10-pack on daily deal and discovered a top-quality new favorite-got the torpedoes.This is just a delicious cigar with some complexity,medium to full strength,perfect draw and a slow cool burn,aroma is heavenly.For me personally it was a 90-rated experience,will "try" to let the rest age awhile and check the progress.Well done Pinar del Rio on a rich,tradional type of cigar and thanks C.I.!
The PDR sun grown is one of those "fly under the radar" tasty smokes. They make frequent appearances on Joe's Jambalaya for about 2 bucks a stick, and at that price are a great deal! Good construction, nice flavor, watch the Jam and get them at a great price.
