A Limited Edition handmade following years of experimenting.
George Rico unveils his latest limited release after years of blending: G.A.R. Opium.
George Rico is widely known for his incredible blending talents. And with these talents, Rico has created a brand worthy of a few ‘90’ ratings and the allegiance of enthusiasts everywhere. Gran Habano made a name for themselves with the ‘92’ rated Gran Habano 3 SLS and has been pumping out affordable, everyday premiums since. With G.A.R. Opium, George Rico raises the stakes with a limited-edition premium that exceeds the brand’s already high standards.
G.A.R. Opium immediately caught our attention when George Rico wouldn’t reveal the top-secret fillers of the blend. All he could say is that he uses Nicaraguan tobaccos to make this mouth-watering medium to full-bodied blend. These luscious fillers are generously packed inside a silky smooth Nicaraguan Habano hybrid wrapper that gleams with natural oils that accentuate the wrapper’s natural red hue. The cigar emanates rich plumes of smoke and notes of cedar, cocoa, and black pepper round out our new favorite from George Rico.
