El Rico Habano Cigars
The El Rico Habano cigar brand was created in 1970, by cigar master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr at his factory in Miami`s Little Havana section. The reaction to this full-bodied smoke was terrific and the brand 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.
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 Rich One describes perfectly what you may expect from this exquisite cigar - a bold, rich, one-of-a-kind flavor from start to finish.
