Rough Cut Cigar Review – Gran Habano American Puro

Gran Habano American Puro
Today we offer the Stogie Press Rough Cut cigar review notes on the Gran Habano American Puro. Introduced in 2013 the Gran Habano American Puro is just that,. a cigar that uses all american grown leaf and manufactured in the GR Tabacaleras Unidas Co. factory in Miami, FL.  It does not get more American! So today, 240 years after we declared independence from the Crown, I present you my notes on this fine American cigar. I received the American Puro as part of a sampler pack gifted to me by Gran Habano.

  • Slightly waxy and rugged milk chocolate-brown wrapper
  • Finished with a pig tail cap
  • Pre-light Hickory Smokey aroma off foot
  • Tightly packed
  • Cold draw delivers sweet smoked hickory
  • Nice bands – Primary declares it as George Rico creation Secondary identifies it as the American Puro 
  • Initial puffs offer up charred hickory and pepper
  • An early run develops along the thin char line
  • Dry fruit develops wrapped in a delectable sweetness
  • Well formed salt and pepper ash
  • The early run finds its way and without any touch up
  • Perfectly formed burn cone shows after the inch and half ash fell.
  • Touch of ginger spice enter but mostly dry cherry and cedar
  • Very smooth retro hale after the 1st third
  • Burn has evened out without a touchup
  • Picking up a clove-like aroma in the second third
  • The ginger moves forward tingling the back of my palate
  • Burn is now prefect
  • Hint of vanilla is detected
  • Medium strength
  • Full smoke production
  • Finishes with an ever-present ginger tang and burnt oak.
  • A solid hour plus smoke
