Spotlight Brand: Gran Habano #5 Corojo

Gran Habano #5 Corojo

The fullest bodied cigar in the entire line.

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.

Gran Habano Corojo #5 is the strongest blend in the Gran Habano profile. The filler consists of Costa Rican and Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos with a Costa Rican binder, all held together by a noticeably red and visually flawless Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. The combination produces rich, full-bodied flavors which accent bold nuances of spice and pepper to create a lengthy, robust finish. 

Q & A: High Temperature Storage?

Q.
I have no air conditioning in my home. How will the heat affect my cigars?

A.
Cigars do enjoy heat and humidity but too much of either will only cause problems. You should always keep your humidity between 65 and 72 percent depending on the type of cigars you're storing. However, regarding heat, you should never allow your storage area to rise above 75 degrees. Obviously, too much heat will dry out your cigars, leaving you with cracked wrappers, uneven burns and a foul taste since the oils will no longer be present. To put it simply, you may have a terrible experience. In addition, too much heat mixed with too much humidity will not only create an environment perfect for growing mold, but also will allow for tobacco beetles to hatch, which can devour all of your cigars within a day. In order to avoid these problems and to guarantee you'll have a great experience everytime you reach in your humidor, try to keep your cigars in 70% humidity and at 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
