Graycliff elegance, moderately priced.
The Graycliff name has become a staple in a world filled with cigar and wine connoisseurs searching for the best products money can buy. Graycliff owner Enrico Garzaroli founded his esteemed resort in 1973, establishing not only the Caribbean's first 5 star restaurant, but also creating the home to what is now the world's second largest private wine collection. In addition to his resort and wine cellar, Erico Garzaroli also set out to create the finest cigars available, and thus the Graycliff brand was born.
Graycliff 'G2' is a slight departure from the rest of the Graycliff lines in terms of price. 'G2' still maintains the same quality and construction enthusiasts have come to love about Graycliff, but is offered at a far less expensive price. Made in Nicaragua, this cigar offers a medium body, consisting of Cuban-seed, long-leaf tobaccos hailing from Nicaragua and the Dominican, which are concealed by an Ecuadoran Connecticut Shade wrapper. It is perfectly balanced, and offers peppery nuances while providing a creamy smoke with a spicy, but enjoyable finish.
If I in the mood for a more mild, Connecticut wrapper type of cigar (and I would class this as more "mild" than "medium") this will be one of my favorite choices at a lower price point. Very tasty, lots of nice smoke. Creamy, nutty and just a tiny bit spicy on straight draw, quite a bit more spice on a retrohale. Burns nice very straight, excellent draw. No touch up needed. Outstanding with a bloody mary!
When I first got my box, I smoked one and was not very impressed, the taste seemed bland. I put them in the Humidor for a couple of weeks and then smoked another, what a big difference. The cigar burned well and had plenty of flavor through out. A good cigar for the price.
