Barracuda STK by George Rico Robusto
5 x 50 - Natural - Single
Barracuda STK cigars come from George Rico of Gran Habano Cigars. Expertly made by hand in their Miami, Florida factory, Barracuda is a handsome-looking puro with an all-Nicaraguan blend of rare Esteli & Jalapa Ligero long-filler, Jalapa binder, and a Nicaraguan Habano 2002 wrapper. Expect a full-flavored smoke that's exceptionally rich and smooth.
Everyone has their own tastes and this cigar did nothing for me. Easily the worst cigar in my humidor at the moment. Bland & grassy tasting, thin smoke. Sure it looked good, draw was fine and was made well enough but the flavor was no where near what s out there. Not sure what to do with the other three in my humidor.
The cigar had a very good appearance %26 was very well constructed. The cigar had a good burn %26 didn t require touching up with the torch. Smooth taste.
I've liked all the Gran Habano lines. But this Barracuda was the best experience I've personally had with their cigars. Construction, burn, flavors all very good. It hovers between mild and med body. Flavors of sweet cedar, roasted nut and slight spice on the retro hale all combine for a nice and consistent smoke.
