Gran Habano G.A.R Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features an oily dark brown wrapper with a very firm feel, slight tooth, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich oily, musty tobacco aroma. First light reveals a snug draw but with great thick smoke output, giving medium-full body flavors of a very smooth creamy textured leather with a tiny bit of pepper and sweetness. The finish if very long and oily, holding on to the big flavors. The first third burns well and slowly, bringing out the sweetness through the draw more while dialing down the body to medium. 40 minutes in brings the 1/2 way point where the ash is still holding firm, construction is very good with a great burnline, very thick smoke production and rich flavors. The draw has taken on a bit of a citrus, mixing with the sweet leather very well and the big oily finish. Ending at 1 hour with an inch remaining, the last third proved to be very consistent, just opening up the draw slightly to a perfect resistance. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for sending me this to review!

    Great review. Yeah, I dig these. I don’t know why, but they seem to fly under the radar. And they do pump out the stationary smoke, don’t they? 🙂

    Glad you liked it.

  • Good cigar. I enjoyed the flavor. You can definitely taste and smell that musty tobacco flavor. The wrapper has a peppery smell that is fantastic.

    Good review as always,this is one that sounds like I might enjoy. Your comments in telling us how the cigar tastes are very unique. I wish that I could taste the cigar as you.

    Bryan, when you said this was a leather cigar, you weren’t kidding! This cigar was one of THE most thick smokes I’ve ever had in the near 100 cigars I’ve had thus far. So chewy I felt like I was literally eating a cow’s hide. While leather isn’t exactly my favorite flavor, I’ll give the cigar that it was very creamy and soft like you said in your review. I give it a solid 8 bu only recommend it for those looking for a real leather cigar. Still, a unique cigar for your Hidden Treasure Sampler.
