Jaime Garcia Super Gordo cigars are the ultimate in long smoke time with the incredible flavor and complexity you've come to love with Jaime Garcia. With a Nicaraguan core and CT Broadleaf Madruro wrapper, this cigar tapers at the mouth for a comfortable mouth feel from this massive cigar!
A real surprise. bought it atTotal Wine an More in Natick, MA. It was a real pleasure to smoke.
I like that the head has an opening so that no cutter is required. When I first fired it up the taste was great, but halfway through it got pretty nasty.
By far, the best non-cuban cigar I ve had. A friend gave me one for Christmas a year ago and it sat in my humidor for about six months. After trying it, I had to order a box. I am down to my last one, and will certainly be ordering another box. The first 19 were perfect, consistent, tasty and a real pleasure. You gotta try one.
Even though it is open at the head, this still requires cutting for a proper draw. Muted flavors of earth and wood on the palate, and delicate herbs on the retrohale, with some black pepper and sweet mint on the aftertaste. The salty wrapper turned bitter once wet. Burn wasn t that great. Overall, I was a bit disappointed as I expected more power and especially more depth; however, I don t think this size does the blend justice, and I also suspect the vitolas I received are past their prime. Definitely a full-bodied cigar, yet not overwhelming; will burn for 1.5+ hours.
