G.A.R. is a medium to full-bodied, full-flavored treat from George Rico, sometimes described as a “powerhouse.” It certainly rivals his bold earlier creations, Gran Habano and the top-rated 3 Siglos. The G.A.R. uses a beautiful Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper, a Connecticut binder and a robust vintage mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Construction is top-notch. The first thing you’ll note about the GAR is that the band is at the foot—a unique twist that adds to the eye appeal of this lovely box-pressed, rich brown stick. Heavy in the hand, the stick feels slick and silky. The wrapper has a very light semi-sweet cedar smell and the foot a very floral aroma with hints of cumin. Look for a ton of flavorful smoke from the first draw and the sweet taste of maple. Then there are some subtle floral notes, a little spice and some hints of cedar. The finish lingers slightly with a nice subtle spice on the back of the tongue and throat. G.A.R. really pumps out the smoke with rolls of curls coming from the head and foot even while resting. The aroma is sweet and potent—one that virtually sings “cigar shop” to those of us who love our sticks. This smoke is so smooth and creamy, it deceptive—it doesn’t give you the impression that it’s a powerhouse. But don’t let that fool you! This is not a cigar to have in the morning or on an empty stomach. Seasoned smokers will enjoy the G.A.R. but even novices will likely appreciate its readily available flavors. Our Beer of the Month Club members can enjoy this with this month’s Otter Creek Pale Ale. Or try it with your favorite winter warmer style ale.
