Gran Habano Cigars – Affordable and Delicious!

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

The Gran Habano brand encompass a four-wrapper variety of premium handmade cigars blended by the father and son team of George and Guillermo Rico and handcrafted in Honduras. Their goal was to marry rich flavors and superb construction with affordable prices, and, if you browse through the tons of high-ratings from industry experts and everyday smokers alike, it’s safe to assume that they accomplished this task with flying colors!  Considered by many to be the “Bentley” of budget friendly cigars, the current Gran Habano portfolio consists of the #3 Habano, the #5 Maduro and Corojo, and the #1 Connecticut.

The Gran Habano #1 Connecticut cigars are expertly rolled with well-aged Nicaraguan Habano binder and filler tobaccos paired with a silky smooth, golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper.  Made with the mellow to medium-bodied enthusiast in mind, the cigar serves up easygoing, well-balanced flavors of cocoa, nuts, toast, cedar, and caramel. Even if you prefer a stick with a lot more kick, this lush Connecticut style cigar has more than enough flavor to become your morning or mid-day smoking companion.

Dark brown in color and decidedly Cuban-style in character, the medium to full bodied Gran Habano # 3 Habano cigars provide scrumptious layers of dark roast coffee, white pepper, roasted nuts, cedar, and a sweet smoky aroma. We think this cigar is about as close as you will come to a genuine Cubano without needing a passport and a plane ticket to buy them!

Featuring a hearty combo of aged long-fillers from Nicaragua and Costa Rica, the Gran Habano #5 Maduro  cigars are finished with a dark and oily Corojo wrapper from Nicaragua. this full-bodied pleasure is oozing with hearty notes of espresso, chocolate, spice, roasted nuts, and earth. A Maduro lover’s dream, these black beauties are just begging to be smoked after a juicy steak fresh off your backyard grill.

The #5 Corojo cigars are undoubtedly the most full-bodied blend in the popular Gran Habano lineup.  The recipe consists of a nutrient rich, clay red Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder, and perfectly aged long-fillers from Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Peppery spice, rich earthy tobacco, leather, and black coffee flavors provide a heady, powerful smoke that is best tackled on a full stomach! Newbies need not apply, but the well-seasoned cigar aficionado will find the #5 Corojo cigar an extremely satisfying reward after a busy day!

JR Special Corona- The Rebirth of a Classic JR Cigar.

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

For more than three decades, the JR Special Corona cigars were some of the best-selling smokes in our exclusive in-house lineup. When they finally disappeared due to manufacturing issues, some of the hardcore brand loyalists were very upset— to say the least! We are happy to report that we have resurrected this legendary brand and they are just as delicious and affordably priced as ever.

The brand new JR Special Corona, once again made exclusively for us, is handmade in Nicaragua in your choice of three top-quality wrapper styles that include a golden brown Ecuador Connecticut, a robust, clay-red colored Habano Rosado, and a deep dark and delicious Connecticut Broadleaf maduro. Nestled underneath these three fine wrapper varieties are perfectly aged Indonesian and Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos. All three blends are medium in strength, 6 x 50- Toro sized, and packed in value-price bundles of 15.  Now, let’s take a closer look at what this affordable brand has to offer.

When choosing the JR Special Corona Toro Connecticut Ecuador, you will enjoy an easygoing smoke with a warm and toasty aroma and lush complex notes of sweet spice, leather, nuts, and coffee. This one will become your ideal morning and mid-day cigar-smoking companion.

The Toro Habano Rosado Ecuador cigar really stands out with its stunning reddish-brown Cuban-seed wrapper. Slightly more robust than its Connecticut wrapped cousin, the cigar remains medium bodied with delicious flavors of earth, leather, spice, and dark roast coffee. Smooth enough for that first morning smoke, yet boasting enough complexity and balance for the evening, this Special Corona is a very accommodating cigar.

With the JR Special Corona Toro Maduro, dark leaf enthusiasts will savor delicious medium body notes of chocolate, coffee bean, earth, and caramel. This wonderful slow-burning smoke is one that can be enjoyed all day. This gem also pairs perfectly with espresso, port wine, and a nice craft brew.

Boasting outstanding construction and tons of complexity, our lineup of JR Special Corona blends prove that a premium cigar doesn’t have to be
