Back in April, we reported on Gran Habano Cigars plans for the Gran Reserva #5 – the fourth installment in Gran Habano’s Gran Reserva series.  Yesterday, the company has announced availability of the cigar.

In terms of the cigar, the final blend has been announced to be a Nicaraguan puro – which differs from the blend that was announced in April which was said to contain Costa Rican tobacco.

The Gran Habano Gran Reserva #5 2011 will be made in Honduras at the company’s G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas factory. This limited production line joins the Gran Reserva #3 2008, Gran Reserva #3 2009, and Gran Reserva #5 2010.



The cigar is described as being full-bodied delivering a “smooth, earth, and spicy smoke accompanied by notes of sweet wood and espresso.”

At a glance, here is a look at the Gran Habano Gran Reserva #5 2011:
