Time to drop some knowledge on you!!! This Cigar Samplers pack is all about the Habano wrapper. In fact, all 4 cigars a draped in a Habano wrapper. What is a Habano wrapper and what makes it different or unique? Let's discuss! Habano is a strain of tobacco from Cuban seed created to resist mold and sickness. You see, the corojo leaf took a beating in the 1990s. The Habano and the Habano dos mil (2000) were made in Cuba and can now be found in every popular growing area in the world. Most people are familiar with Nicaraguan Habano as it is a favorite in the industry! Habano wrappers tend to be spicy, rich, peppery and the color is generally dark.
My first offering is the Romeo Y Julieta Reserve Toro ( 6 X 56). The Romeo y Julieta Reserve Toro is a fuller version of the popular Dominican brand made to please those who want RYJ "kicked up". This version is made in Honduras at the Flor de Copan factory by a friend! Enjoy this Habano wrapped lovely.
The Joya de Nicaragua Red Robusto ( 5.25 X 50) is another medium to a fuller-bodied cigar with a rich and oily Habano wrapper crafted in Esteli. The blend consists of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from the regions of Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega. The 3 most popular growing regions in Nicaragua. This cigar has great balance and a razor-sharp burn.
George Rico's Gran Habano #3 Robusto ( 5 x 50) is a unique blend featuring tobacco from Mexico, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. Of course, the wrapper is a Nicaraguan Habano and tends to lean towards the fuller side of medium. This stick was rated a "best buy" and 90 points in Cigar Aficionado. Leather, pepper, earth, and cedar are just some of the tasting notes.
The Cain H Nub ( 4 X 60) is short and stout in both size and flavor! The H stands for Habano and like the previous cigars above, it's fuller-bodied. The blend consists of an aged Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobaccos topped off with a silky Cuban-seed Habano wrapper from Nicaragua. The Nub was designed for you to get to the "sweet spot" with your first puff! You will not be disappointed with this Oliva creation.
I hope you enjoy this Cigar Samplers journey into the Habano wrapper. This wrapper is getting more popular each year and now you know a little more about it! (That's if you read this!) Or maybe you just saw the names, the price, and the free shipping and ordered without reading. I would not blame you, either way, this is a solid deal!!
