Garo’s New Line

Garo rebranded their line this year w/ Maduro especial, Adamas and a edition limitada 2010. $9-14 price range. Ecuadoran wrappers grown in Ecuador you can grow 4 times a year in different areas to get a consistent wrapper.

“The passion I have never went away. I’m very traditionalist in terms of cigars. I want people to come and sit and smoke and talk. I am a very realistic guy.”

I smoked a sample of the maduro expecial. Very smooth dark wrapper. warm tobacco pre-draw. Lit easily and produced chocolate notes as well as well aged and toasted tobacco; peppery spices developed.

This was a very well constructed cigar with volumes of very full bodied maduro flavors with hints of sweetness.

Either I am drawing too fast or the construction is a bit loosely rolled because the cigar started gretting warm fairly quickly at at about the mid point. Despite the warmness though, the flavors continued to shine through.

Construction – 4.5

Flavors – 5

Body – 5

Volume of smoke 4.5

Overall a very pleasant smoke aimed clearly at the maduro crowd. Joe Bob says check it out.
