Gispert Cigars: A Third Look
Back in 2015, we did our second review of the Gispert Cigars, which of course followed the first review that was written a decade ago. Why so many looks? Because in the past five years, so many new brands, both boutique, and major, have graced the premium cigar market. Yet, Gispert Cigars are still going strong today, and remain a very popular choice among smokers that are looking to strike up the perfect balance between flavor and strength. The affordable price keeps it on the top of the charts too.
Billed as the mellow Honduran, Gispert cigars are actually medium-bodied in strength but they get this handle because Honduran cigars, for the most part, are bolder, and made with the more experienced smoker in mind.
For a little refresher course, the Honduran Gispert Cigars have a storied past that traces its origin back to 19th century Cuba. They are now made by industry giant Altadis U.S. A ., home to Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, H.Upmann, and a host of other top-of-the-line world-class brands.
Gispert Cigars feature a blend of fully aged Honduran and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos, covered by a Honduran binder and a silky blonde Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper. It’s an elegant and refined smoke that boasts top-notch construction, a nice slow burn, and an easy draw.
After torching the foot of your favorite Gispert, you’ll be greeted with smooth and creamy flavors of cocoa, leather, and cedar, punctuated with just the perfect touches of spice. This amounts to a smoke that can be enjoyed first thing in the morning, yet has enough “oomph” to get you through the rest of your smoking day.
As versatile as it is in taste, Gispert cigars are conveniently packaged in your choice of singles, 5-packs, and modestly priced cedar chests of 25, to accommodate your lifestyle, budget, and cigar storage capacity.
