Gran Habano Blue in Green Gran Robusto
SIZE: 54 x 152 mm (6″)
PRICE: $ 9.5 | € –
TIME: 1h 10 min
WRAPPER: U.S.A. (Connecticut)
Wrapped in a strip of cedar wood, with the ends enclosed with a golden satin strip, this cigar immediately shows a lot of attention to details. Under the Connecticut wrapper, beats a Nicaraguan heart. It shows exceptional balance and an incredibly prolonged persistence topped by a decidedly strong flavor intensity.
It delivers wood, citrus fruits and white pepper, followed by roasted notes. Then the spices increase, culminating in hot peaks. Coffee beans, leather and vanilla follow. In the end, a blast of pan brioches and balsamic herbs.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared and the TOP 5 are made.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs, in order to give the right space to all the producing countries.
From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. This list, together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy and the Best Boutique Brands, will be published in Winter 2019 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
