The Gran Habano Corojo No. 5 Gran Reserva 2012, a cigar announced just prior to the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show is now heading to retailers. The Gran Habano Corojo No. 5 Gran Reserva 2012 is the fifth installment in the series.
The blend was developed by the father and son team of Gullerno and George Rico. It consists of a Nicaraguan wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Costa Rican fillers. The cigars are available in five sizes, each presented in 20-count boxes.
The Gran Habano Gran Reserva line is Gran Habano’s line that incorporates well-aged vintage tobaccos. The company says the Gran Reserva line is made using the top 10% best leaf from the yearly crop and aged an extra seven to eight years for being rolled. Typically the actual Gran Habano Gran Reserva cigars go through a period of four to six years aging, however the company says the 2012 installment has been aged an additional three years longer than the previous Gran Reserva releases.
