A medium-bodied premium blend of Nicaraguan and Panamanian long leaves makes up Gran Habano Azteca - all masked by a Mexican San Andres maduro binder and wrapper.
Just outside of Danli Honduras, in the neighboring town of El Pariaso (the paradise), is a small factory owned by the Rico family. Father and son, George and Guillermo Rico, are well known in the cigar industry for making exceptional quality cigars. Enthusiasts are most familiar with their original Gran Habano line, which took the stage in 2007.
Gran Habano Azteca exudes a creamy smoke that coats your palate with complex flavors of pepper and earth while leaving behind an oily feel. The finish remains smooth, with sweetness noticeable until the very last puff. The blend only slightly builds in strength as the cigar burns. Great in the morning or after a hearty meal, this cigar works well for experienced aficionados and newcomers alike.
