The Havana Republic Cigar Co. is one of the few publicly traded firms in the burgeoning cigar industry. Havana Republic carefully selects the finest quality Cuban seed available, and transports it to Nicaragua where it is grown on the rich fertile hillsides. The line is produced by the same folks that bring you the Davidoff brand and we think you’ll taste the difference in this high-end, lightly distributed line of box pressed beauties. The factory and plantations are in the Jalapa region, the "Napa Valley" of the cigar tobacco market. Havana Republic introduced the "Grand Havana Series II " January 1999, to rave reviews. The cigar is a Nicaraguan Puros, meaning the filler, binder, and wrapper are all grown on Havana Republics Plantation in Nicaragua. The cigar uses a 2-year aged Cuban Seed wrapper that is as smooth as silk. It’s box pressed in traditional Cuban style. Our panel loved each cigar evaluated and really favored the robusto so that’s what you’ll get to try this month. Enjoy!

Immediately note another aesthetically pleasing box pressed treat encased in an oily ruddy wrapper. We found it to be expertly rolled, offering an even-burning, cool smoke with a perfect draw. This is a very tasty smoke. Look for a complex flavor comprised of rich spices, toasted caramel and leathery tones. We found the finish to be medium and offering lingering earthy tones. Overall, a great smoke from start to finish. We know you’re going to enjoy it. Consider smoking it with your favorite Spiced Christmas Ale.
