Review Notes: Handsome reddish brown Nicaraguan wrapper. Nice prelight aroma to this well aged (year plus) stick. Cigar felt heavy. Started peppery but moved to a richer, sweeter molasses type spice. Stayed basically there but had some coffee, earth, and dark chocolate notes. Mostly smooth but I did have a few harsh moments within the 2 hour experience. As billed, mostly medium in overall body but sometimes flashed to full. Burn was a bit uneven (typical for me with churchills) and this stick went out 3 times. Upon relighting this stick it continued tasting mostly fine. As with the other Gran Habano's I've tried (G.H. #1 & 5... both very nice) the draw was perfect with tons of thick smoke. At $3-ish a throw this is a no-brainer must try. For the overall value, taste, and quality within their brands other manufacturers should try copying whatever Gran Habano is currently doing in the cigar industry.
