The Griffin's #500 cigars are handcrafted by Davidoff in the Dominican Republic. Rolled to a Cuban Corona shape with only the finest, long-aged Dominican tobaccos and U.S.-grown Connecticut wrappers, these mild cigars offer a mellow smoke with flavors of nuts, sweet cream, and an alluring aroma.
It has a smooth taste, looks and smells good and burns well. The only problem i had was the band glue was stuck to the cigar and actually tore the wrapper when i removed it.
This cigar is hands down my favorite smoke. The #500 is the perfect size for smoking while fishing and working. It is not overpowering at all and I can hold it in my mouth all day without becoming sick. It has a pleasant nutty flavor, excellent draw, pretty consistant burn and construction, and has a pleasant aroma. It is a very good smoke for beginners who want to taste the difference between a decent smoke and an exquisite one.
Have tried so many cigars, but always go back to my Griffin 500's. Ring and length just right and the smoke is smooth and mellow. Please do NOT discontinue this cigar!
