High-end Graycliffs just got a little more high-end.
Graycliff owner and world renowned sommelier Enrico Garzaroli found himself in the cigar business almost by accident. Having opened the Caribbean's first 5 star restaurant, which is also home to the world's second largest private wine collection, Enrico wanted to offer a selection of fine cigars to his guests to complement the fine food and libations offered on the menu. Unsatisfied with even the finest cigars available at the time, Enrico set out to make cigars that would meet his high standards. To do this, he brought on Avelino Lara, the former personal roller to Fidel Castro and the man credited with founding the Cuban Cohiba brand. Avelino led a team of expert rollers to make the first Graycliff line of cigars. Today the brand is more popular than ever, and includes several line extensions.
This is quite possibly the best Graycliff ever. This smooth, medium-bodied gem produces thick, rich plumes of smoke. The blend emits notes of cedar, earth, and finishes with crisp and creamy notes. With the price tag that this blend carries, it's definitely not an everyday cigar. However, if you save it for a special occasion, you won't be disappointed. This blend delivers on all levels.
