Due to the success of Gran Habano No. 5 Corojo, the factory stockpiled the same limited wrapper for seven years to use in another blend. That blend, Vintage 2002, is a one time production made with this aged wrapper, and is now available for a limited time.
Located in the town of El Pariaso rests the Gran Habano factory, just outside of Danli, Honduras. This factory produces all of Gran Habano's cigars from the original Connecticut #1 to the highly sought after 3 Siglos blend. Father and son team, Guillermo and George Rico, have built their brand from the ground up, creating unique, award winning blends famous for their complexities and deliberate flavors.
Vintage 2002 contains the same exact blend as the award winning Gran Habano No. 5 Corojo, and utilizes premium long leaves grown in the most fertile regions of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The difference is that Vintage sports a beautiful, oily Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper from 2002, which creates ample spice mixed with earthy nuances. Don't fret though, with 7 years of age under its belt, this blend remains smooth and creamy from start to finish with thick, hearty flavors of nuts and earth masked with an underlying coffee-like sweetness. It's a fantastic, well-aged cigar.
These Gran Habano's are bunk. I put them in the humidor and smoked my first one after a couple of days. The burn was bad. Poor smoke quantity, and the burn was very uneven. They were considered mild but the taste was as if the cigars were green. I smoked another after the had been in the box a couple of weeks and the quality was the same. This is the first bad box of cigars I got from Cigar.com. In the future I will sample a cigar before I purchase a box.

New to cigars but i have to say Gran Habano Vintage 2002 is an excellent smoke. I've been lighting up 1 every night for past 2 months and it is always a pleasure lighting up a Vintage 2002. Smooth even burn from start to finish.
