If I didn’t know better, I’d think the Garzaroli family had invented hospitality. If you’ve ever spent any time with them, I know you think the same thing. It’s for that reason that I continuously wonder how a family that can run a five star resort and an unbelievable restaurant, can also make world class cigars. And above all that, do it out of the Bahamas. I guess I can’t tell you how, fairly sure I can’t tell you why, but I sure hope they continue to pull it all off.

If you weren’t aware, Graycliff is located in Nassau, the capital city of the Bahamas. The estate is a elegantly renovated 260 year old colonial style resort. It was built in the 1700s by John Howard Graysmith, and turned into Nassau’s first inn. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places Graycliff has a rich history that includes Hollywood stars, privateers, princes, and heads of state. And in all this history, there are also the cigars.

I found myself enjoying a Graycliff Professionale Series P.G.. The cigar is a standard 5 ¼ by 50 ring gauge robusto wrapped in the distinctive royal blue band of the Professionale series. I have very much grown to enjoy this line of cigars, and caution people to always smoke more than one. Your first impression of a Graycliff can throw you for a loop. I have heard on numerous occasions people who hammer these cigars after having just one, only to start singing their praises once they have tried a few. I wish I knew why this was, but I don’t and can explain it much further. What you can take from a is here’s a chance to smoke more than one of the great cigar.

I also want to add not to be scared away by the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of Graycliff cigars. While they can have the astronomical list prices, you can find them for quite a bit less.

The PG is an extremely complex cigar. Wrapped in an Indonesia tobacco leaf, the filler consists of tobaccos from Brazil, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The binder of the Graycliff Professionale PG robusto is also Indonesian, and likely where they get all the spice from. The complexity of the cigar is astounding from smoke to smoke. There are so many flavors being thrown at your palette, that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Perhaps this is also the reason many people are confused by their first Graycliff. It may simply take some time for you to figure out the complexities of what you’re smoking. Not that that’s a bad thing.

Graycliff makes fantastic cigars, without question.

I'll have to add the Professionale to my queue ;-)
