The Griffin's No. 500 cigars are meticulously handmade by Davidoff of Geneva with three unique, long-aged, Cuban-seed tobaccos and perfectly-cured, US Connecticut shade wrappers. The smoke is rich, creamy laced with mellow cedar notes. Incredibly consistent. A sterling smoke. Try 5 first!
This cigar is awesome! I have smoked cigars for many years and I was recently introduced to the one by a friend. After finishing the first one, I was certain it was a $20 cigar, wrong, this is one of the best values and a pleasure to enjoy.
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.
