Gallo Pinto Cigars By Guayacan Online ReviewGallo Pinto cigars are produced by Guayacan, a small stogie production company out of Tabacalera Aromas de Jalapa located in Esteli, Nicaragua. Guayacan is owned by Noel Rojas, who is often considered “the little engine that could” due to his determination in getting the business of the ground. His Gallo Pintos are available in five distinct sizes; Churchill (7” x 50), Gordo (6” x 60), Robusto (5” x 50), Toro (6” x 50), and Torpedo (6 1/8" x 52). The collection boasts a Honduras and Nicaraguan filler with a Nicaraguan binder, wrapped beautifully in an Indonesian wrapper. Aficionados describe the stogie as a medium to full body with moments of real strength, so it is not for beginning smokers.

First, the look of the cigar is described by reviewers as tightly wrapped in a gorgeous medium to dark brown Indonesian wrapper
. It is said to have an almost ashy or rustic look to it as if it has been around a while. Aromas such as red pepper and beans can be picked up off the stick pre-light. The name of this stick translates to beans and rice, which is most of the flavor within the stick, with varying spices. Upon lighting, this stick soars with a strong black pepper flavor followed by a soft bread like taste. Enthusiasts also describe the smoke of the stick, initially, as plentiful and quality. Easing past the initial burn there are flavors of rum, spice, molasses, cacao, and bean as the stogie approaches more of a full strength stick. As it ends, it comes to full-flavor with bean, rice, and a combination of the pepper and hints of flavor before. The stick is also described as having an excellent burn with only minor wrapper issues and a strong, tightly packed, white ash. Smoke time is stated to be under two hours.

Many say that the Gallo Pinto cigars are one of the best bargains out there
. It is available as a singleton or in a box of twenty. The box itself resembles a worn, but classic paper with an artistic rooster decal and the name of the cigar in black lettering. Individually the sticks sport no label, only the Indonesian wrapper. Overall, due to their inexpensive nature and relatively high quality the Gallo Pinto cigars are called by many as “must haves”, making them a great every day or on a special occasion.
