Gran Habano Cigars

Gran Habano 3 SLS & Cabinet Selection

Miami, Fl., August 30, 2010 Due to the overwhelming success of our new Azteca cigar we have decided to cease production of the highly-rated 3 SLS and Cabinet Selection lines. This difficult decision will allow Gran Habano to maintain our high level of quality and consistency within our core lines and any special projects that may be in development. Gran Habano’s current inventory of 3 SLS and Cabinet Selection cigars will be depleted by the end of 2010. At the current pace we expect our final shipments to be sent out in September.

Padilla 1932

Behind The Stick:

Here comes a cigar produced from one of the best in the business, in my opinion. Ernesto Padilla has already created many cigars I keep in my humidor on a regular basis, and I hope this Padilla 1932 continues that trend. Ernesto decided to produce a cigar that was in memory to his late father, Herberto Padilla, who was a well known poet in Cuba born in 1932. Please check out my review of the Padilla 1968 Golden Bear for a more detailed history.

Flor de Cielo Corojo

Behind The Stick:

Although I was unable to locate too much information on these smokes, I felt I just had to review these. Not a very well known cigar, the Flor de Cielo line is made by the folks at Corona Cigar Co. and they were nice enough to send me a few of these about a year ago. With all the other smokes coming and going from the humidor I just placed a few of these at the bottom and figured I’d give them a bit of time to set up their delivery. I don’t think I could explain it any better
