Spotlight Brand: Gran Habano #5 Corojo

October 15, 2008 |

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: Methods For Removing Humidity

What is the best method for removing humidity from my humidor?

10/13/08 | by CJ of Taos, NM

A humidor is nothing more than a box created to retain humidity. Of course, some humidors are more extravagant than others, but for the most part, any box made of Spanish Cedar will retain moisture. With this in mind, there are a few easy ways to rid your humidor, and cigars, of their humidity. The easiest method simply involves removing all humidification devices from your humidor. The cigars will slowly pull moisture from each other, causing the humidity to drop. Be sure to replace your humidification devices once the humidity levels out at 70%, to prevent your cigars from turning to dust. A second method involves leaving the humidor open over night, or “venting” it. This will allow all of the humidity to escape the humidor, leaving it in a condition not suitable for storing cigars – very dry. This method is only recommended for extreme situations, such as finding mold or having incredibly “spongy” cigars. The final recommended method is to add extra cigars or Spanish Cedar blocks to your humidor. The cigars will act as sponges (same as the Spanish Cedar blocks), which will deplete your humidor from any excess moisture, while still allowing the cigars to retain their current humidity levels.
