No. 1 Connecticut cigars deliver a mild balance of creamy earth with toasted hints of cedar.
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 No. 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.
Gran Habano No. 1 Connecticut showcases an aromatic Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper masking a mild to medium-bodied blend of Nicaraguan long-leaf fillers. What really makes this Connecticut stand out from the plethora of others in the industry is its unique aroma and full-flavored character. This is a rather mild Connecticut blend you can actually enjoy after dinner, rather than just as the start to your morning. It has enough flavor to pair well with your favorite libation, but offers a light strength any aficionado can appreciate.
too big, I've never tried 70 ring gauge before. Too big for me, nothing wrong with the smoke, just too darn big.

A Honduran that'll make you think you're smoking a Dominican

My very favorite cigar available on the cigar.com website. Made in Honduras by George Rico with Nicaraguan tobacco and a superb Ecuadorian-grown CT wrapper, this cigar is a moi excellente smoking experience! Mild-medium body, excellent construction, and a subtle yet alluring flavor that tantalizes my taste buds and never fails to please. Because I hardly ever buy a cigar larger that 50 ring gauge, the 4.5" suits me just fine. Highly recommended!
