EL RICO HABANO
WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf/Ecuador Sumatra BINDER: Nicaragua FILLER: Nicaragua
As close as you will ever come in taste to those great old pre-embargo Cuban cigar brands, and a favorite among strong-cigar smokers, the El Rico Habano brand’s production was at one time ceased by its former maker, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr., when he found he could not secure the right tobaccos.
However, back in 2001, Nicaragua’s superb tobacco crop returned and these spicy, full-bodied smokes were reintroduced. Featuring a rich Nicaraguan binder finished with a specially aged Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper or a dark Connecticut broadleaf maduro, these cigars provide one-of-a-kind flavors from start to finish.
Featured Customer Reviews for EL RICO HABANO
El Rico exceeds expectations
The toughest choice you will have to make is which wrapper you want! This cigar is fantastic whether you choose the Sumatra or Maduro. I dont think it is quite full bodied but pretty close. All things considered, it is worth placing in your rotation!
