Top 5 Habano Wrapped Cigars
For this week’s Top 5, we’re showcasing five different cigars that showcase delicious Habano tobaccos for their wrappers. The cigar industry has trends that once they catch on, you see the trend become more and more regular over time.
There is an abundance of cigars that utilize Habano wrappers in many different forms and we are so thankful for this trend. Grown from Cuban seed, Habano cigar wrappers tend to be on the spicier side, which is darker in color and richer in aroma. The Habano wrapper has been cross-fertilized with different soils, so each unique Habano-wrapped cigar will taste differently.
So, without further ado, here are our Top 5 Habano Wrapped Cigars we simply cannot get enough of. Don’t forget to click on the link below to get this limited-time sampler today.
Oliva Serie V
Leading off on our Top 5 Habano Wrapped cigars is the famous Oliva Serie V in the Double Robusto Box Pressed 5 x 54 size. Oliva has been handcrafting excellent cigars for over 135 years, and this special smoke is no different. This medium to full-bodied smoke hails from Nicaragua, where the tobaccos are plucked from the most fertilized farms Nicaragua has ever seen.
The wrapper cloaked around the Oliva Serie V is a Habano Sun Grown wrapper that hails from Ecuador, while the binder and filler were grown in Nicaragua as previously mentioned. The richness of the Sun Grown wrapper will be giving your taste buds rewarding flavors throughout the smoke.
Flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking this Double Robusto are pepper, earth, coffee, leather, and a touch of cream on the backend. Available in seven different sizes that come in a box of 24, you can now get the Oliva Serie V today online!
Crowned Heads Mil Dias
The second cigar on our Top 5 Habano Wrapped Cigars is a cigar that has become a regular on our Top 5 lists. The Crowned Heads Mil Dias Double Robusto is a perfect example of a Habano wrapper bringing out the best features of the binder and filler tobaccos once lit.
This medium to full-bodied smoke has tobacco from Costa Rica and Nicaragua that make up the binder and filler. For those unfamiliar with this smoke, “Mil Dias” means “1,000 days”, which represents how long it took this cigar to be made from inception. So you know there is tender love and care while this cigar was being hand-rolled to perfection at Tabacalera Pichardo.
Some flavor notes you may detect while smoking the Mil Dias are coffee, red pepper, earth, and spice. The red pepper and spice notes are compliments of the Ecuadorian Habano wrapper cloaked over this 6.38 x 50 gem.
Now available in six different sizes that come in a box of 20, you can grab the Mil Dias from our online store or any brick and mortar today!
Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu
Landing smack dab in the middle in our Top 5 Habano Wrapped Cigars is the Havana VIi Verocu from Tatuaje Cigars. This 6.12 x 52 “No. 6” comes from the hands and minds of both Pete Johnson and Jose Pepin Garcia. This Nicaraguan puro that features the dark and oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper was handcrafted at the My Father Factory under the close supervision of Pepin Garcia.
This smooth, slow-burning medium-bodied smoke has delicious flavor notes of coffee, cream, nuts, and a zesty spice (compliments of the Habano wrapper) on the backend.
Unfortunately due to COVID, the production of Tatuaje cigars is currently experiencing a box production shortage. Although our website the Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu is available in five different sizes that come in a box of 20, that is subject to change in a blink of an eye. So don’t hesitate and grab a box of the delicious Habano wrapped gem from Tatuaje today.
Pledge by EP Carrillo
Next up on our Top 5 Habano Wrapped cigars was Cigar Aficionado’s Number 1 Cigars of 2020. The Pledge by E.P. Carrillo in the 5 x 50 “Prequel” size is the exact size that landed the number one spot last year. Ernesto Perez Carrillo is an exceptional cigar maker, so it is no surprise one of his creations took the top spot home.
Cloaked in a dark, oily Habano Connecticut wrapper, the Pledge welcomes inviting flavor notes to your palates such as black pepper, espresso, and leather. While the Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan fillers bring notes of black cherry, earth, and toast to the forefront, rounding out one scrumptious cigar.

Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper
Last on our Top 5 Habano Wrapped Cigars hails from a company we absolutely love. The Alec & Bradley Gatekeeper is expertly rolled at EP Carrillo’s factory, which is why it was named number seven cigar of 2020 on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list. The 6 x 52 Toro size apart of this top five is one of our favorite cigars to smoke here at JR.
With tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic that make up the binder and filler, the Gatekeeper is cloaked in a stunning Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This gorgeous-looking wrapper gives this medium-bodied smoke a plethora of delicious flavors for your palate to enjoy.
