Wrapper: Equadoran. Filler: Nicaraguan. Binder: Nicaraguan. Country of Manufacture: Dominican Republic. Factory Name: El Credito. -- The history: In 1970, Cigar Master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr. created El Rico Habano, the first line of cigars rolled at his factory in Miami's Little Havana section. The reaction to this full-bodied smoke was terrific, and El Rico Habano became a sought-after selection among seasoned smokers. Although a tobacco shortage in 1994 forced El Rico Habano to cease production, it was re-introduced by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. in 2001 upon the return of Nicaragua's superb tobacco crop. Today, "The Rich One" is back in its original full-bodied taste and strength. The cigar: Each El Rico Habano starts with carefully selected long filler tobacco from Nicaragua. It's given a rich Nicaraguan binder, wrapped in a specially aged sun-grown leaf from Ecuador, and then aged again in a Spanish cedar room to maximize its deep, rich flavor. The experience: "The Rich One" describes perfectly what you may expect from this exquisite cigar - a bold, rich, one-of-a-kind flavor from start to finish.
Here's what others have to say about this item!
These were okay, nothing remarkable. Not a fan of full-bodied sticks, and these reinforced that sentiment. Harsh flavor, uneven burn in majority of them.
