Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo(2002)
Size: 5 x 50
The Gran Habano Vintage Corojo 2002 is one tasty little treat that will not even put a crack in your bank foundation. With the pricing being around $2 a stick, you would have to be some kind of crazy to not order some.
The Vintage Corojo 2002’s have a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper that was cultivated in 2002 and then given a nice cedar slumber for the past 8-9 years. Right away you will notice that the cigar has the appearance of a high end smoke, it has a beautiful shine to its dark, oily wrapper.
After lighting this smoke up I noticed that it had an incredibly pleasant draw that was paired with an array of leather and spice notes. Once I made my way further into the smoke I picked up on nice creamy notes along with a small amount of a bold coffee. These flavors remained consistent throughout most of the smoke, which was a very good thing in my opinion. The Gran Habano Vintage Corojo 2002 is an excellent cigar from start to finish.
When I got into the second third of the smoke, I noticed that the spice began to pick up a little which was fine. I also noticed that this cigar that started off medium began to pack quite a punch which was the finisher on this cigar. I fell in love with a cigar that is priced lower than I ever imagined. These are cigars you should not skip out on, full bodied, long smoke time, and they are cheaper than fast food.
