For this release, George Rico went bold, and he didn’t hold back. Full-flavored and medium to full in body, G.A.R. Red is a real powerhouse that’s far from ordinary.
George Rico is no stranger in the cigar industry. He gained an incredible amount of experience from working with his father, Guillermo, on Gran Habano cigars. His family owns a small factory in Danli, Honduras, where George has helped develop many blends, including the highly rated 3 Siglos series. In an effort to expand his horizons, George A. Rico has released his own line of cigars, G.A.R., which are created using the same standards and methods he employed while working on the Gran Habano line.
This Nicaraguan puro comes with a mix of Habano and Corojo long filler, a binder sourced from Jalapa, and a zesty Habano wrapper. Flavor notes of both chocolate and pepper are fully realized in this blend. G.A.R. Red also boasts plenty of complexity, and the solid, dependable construction makes it the ideal addition to any collection. If you’ve been looking for a premium handmade that makes a statement, then it’s time to celebrate, because you just found it.
