We bring you another aesthetically appealing premium. This one, the Gran Habano Vintage 2002, consists of full-bodied, Habano-seed long-fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. They’re wrapped in a thick, toothy, Nicaraguan-grown Corojo wrapper leaf cultivated back in 2002 and which has enjoyed an extended cedar nap for many more years. The result is a smoke loaded with a series of rich, creamy flavors that smack of coffee, nuts, and earth and are tamed by the smooth, Cubanesque qualities of the well-aged Corojo leaf. Expect a very easy draw and a fine long white ash, an indication of well aged tobaccos. The cigar is medium to full-bodied, but it maintains a wonderful balance and long, elegant finish. The Gran Habano brand means seriously well-made cigars jam-packed with tasty tobaccos. Their stogies always feel heavy in the hand and every Gran Habano cigar tastes exactly like the last. Consistency from this Honduran-based factory is never an issue. This Cigar Aficiando 90-rated smoke is a perfect match for your favorite aged rum, such as Diplomatico Rum Mantuano.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
