Graycliff Espresso

    Characteristics This powerhouse is ideal for those who constantly ask, “Don’t you have anything stronger?” The shadowy, dark, rough-textured Costa Rican wrapper—a sterile hybrid of topmost Cuban-seed corojo—hints at the power to be unleashed with the very first puff. Cuban-seed Cameroon, Ecuadorian ligero (the strongest leaf of the plant), and a touch of soothing Philippine simaba are some of the tobaccos that make this a cigar that lives up to its hard-hitting Espresso name. Our favorite of this three-shape limited-edition line is the Pirate, 6 x 52, a torpedo in more ways than one. Insider's Tip Don’t smoke this alone. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes
