What a surprise. I saw these and for what ever reason, ordered 10 on a Cigar Monster. The Gran Habano #5 Corojo Rothschild. This little Corojo has a very oily wrapper and is a true gem. The review that I read said:

"Average Rating of 8.90 by 26 Customers - Gran Habano Corojo #5 Rothschild cigars present an attractive, well-packed vitola made with a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Costa Rican tobaccos seamlessly rolled in a dark, oily Corojo wrapper leaf. The smoke is creamy and earthy with notes of coffee, nuts and spice on a long finish."

Now, I usually read these descriptions and take them with a grain of salt, but this was right on. This cigar is amazing.

Country: Honduras
Length/Ring: 4 1/2 x 50
Shape: Rothschild
Wrapper: Natural
Strength: Full





I used a V cut on this stick and it has a sweet pre light draw. After I lit up, I noticed a deep puff of dense gray smoke. It starts out creamy and a little spicy. After about 10 minutes, my tongue was tingling, and a nutty coffee flavor came out. It held a beautiful ash, salt and pepper in color with a pretty even burn.





I have been smoking this stick or almost an 45 minutes and just started the last third and it is getting spicy again. The draw stayed true and the smoke is cool. I'm not much for small cigars, but this one has a big flavor, and a big finish. It took slightly over an hour to smoke. I can't seem to put it down, but I will. Funny, I wanted a short smoke beore going to bed. Oh Well.



Down to the nub, the best cigar for around $2.50 that I've smoked.

I've been smoking the toros for some time and they are certainly hard to beat at almost twice the price.

I bought a box of these about 2 months ago from CI. Absolutely great smokes for the price. You can't beat it. You made me want to dig one out of the cooler. Thanks! :thumbs:

These are imo one of if not the best cigars in this price range, and much better than many cigars priced higher. I've been really wanting to try the Lanceros and Fumas.

I found that even after shipping, this is the best price on the Lancero. I wouldn't even mind doing a split with some one on a box.

too bad they don't appear to be in stock.... :(

I'd definitely be down for a split though.

Yup, been eyeing these for a while and they look like the best bet. I'm in for 2 5'ers if you decide to pull the trigger.

just wanted to bump this thread ... the Gran Habano #3 and #5 are my everyday smoke. I get these in the rothchild and churchill sizes typically. As others have said a great cigar at twice the price. I wanted to add.... I have been smoking this cigar for about 5 years now. I suspect 200 - 300 of them in that timeframe. I have not had to throw '1' out due to construction problems.

I love the cigar for 3 primary reasons .... outstanding consistent construction, great price, and 'good' flavor profile.
