At Total Product Expo (TPE) 2023, Gran Habano Cigars will introduce a limited cigar called the George Rico El Enemigo. El Enemigo will be a cigar under Rico’s GAR Brand, and what is significant is that this cigar is being made at the TABADOM factory in the Dominican Republic. It marks the first time Rico has ventured to the Dominican Republic to produce a cigar. TABADOM is the factory operation owned by Davidoff.


The George Rico El Enemigo features both an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and binder over fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Colombia. The cigars will come in three sizes: El Insulto (5 x 52), El Duelo (6 x 54), and El Triunfo (6 x 60). The cigars will be exclusive to the participating 20th Aniversario ultra-premium account holders, which number 200 retailers nationwide. Only 1000 20-count boxes of each size will be available for the first year and will be in limited production subsequently.

TPE 2023 takes place from February 22, 2023, through February 24, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
