One of the most flavorful and exciting releases from Graycliff.
Aficionados are quite familiar with the Graycliff brand. Created by Enrico Garzaroli, founder of the Graycliff hotel and restaurant in Nassau, Bahamas, it is the world's only 5-star brand. To create his coveted cigar line, Enrico teamed up with legendary cigar maker Avelino Lara, Cuba's most accomplished roller who rolled all of Castro's personal cigars. He is also credited as the founder of the Cuban Cohiba brand. With Enrico's palate for fine food and wine and Avelino's extensive experience, the two created Graycliff cigars, which are now among the finest and most expensive cigars on the market.
The cornerstone of the Espresso line is the dark Costa Rican maduro wrapper, which brings this smoke to life. Its robust flavor hits your palate fast and is expertly balanced by a hearty filler. A true connoisseur’s cigar, the Espresso line is intense and consistent from the moment you light it. If you have a discerning palate and are looking for a top notch after-dinner smoke, this is your cigar!
Graycliff Double Espresso is a limited-edition extension of the original Espresso line. Made only in a special robusto size, Double Espresso is the strongest cigar in the Graycliff portfolio, featuring a special ligero filler that perfectly balances flavor and body. This particular Graycliff is only available to fewer than six dealers worldwide, and CIGAR.com is proud to be among them.
There’s nothing like a true Graycliff from the Bahamas. The high-end brand makes some of the finest boutique cigars in the world. The only problem? The hefty price tag. But it’s the Christmas season so I’m treating myself to Double Espresso’s robust blend of ligero tobaccos covered inside a gorgeous Costa Rican maduro wrapper.
Easily the best tasting Graycliff cigar made to date. This short, hearty blend tantalizes your palate with its intense, strong and robust flavors. Black pepper and a multitude of spices will swirl around your mouth while the finish is bold with notes of cedar that stay with you far after the cigar is extinguished. Excellent but especially enjoyable after a hearty meal
From the first puff, the palate is engulfed with rich, earthy flavors that continue to build as the cigar burns. The wrapper appears to be flawless, showing some tooth and veins, while burning evenly throughout. The strength cannot be under estimated. By the third inch, the cigar is very robust and does give off some slightly sweet nuances. However, these are carefully masked by the intense strength and spice of ligero tobaccos. A full bodied masterpiece.
