Jaime Garcia Reserve Especial Limited Edition 2011

Handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Broadleaf Viso
Binder: Cuban Seed Grown in Nicaragua
Filler: Cuban Seed Grown in Nicaragua

This cigar was introduced at the 2011 IPCPR show in Las Vegas and already it has become one of our most talked about cigars. The new Limited Edition features a Broadleaf Viso Wrapper. The Cuban seed binder and filler makes this cigar stand out, they used Pelo de Oro Cuban seed grown in Nicaragua as the binder and filler so it has a different flavor profile than the regular Reserva Especial Line. As is customary with the My Father, Jaime Garcia, and Don Pepin lines the Limited Edition is a full bodied full, flavor smoke. Only one size is available, a Toro measuring 6 1/2 by 52. It is packaged in a beautiful box of 16. You get 15 Reserva Especial Limited Edition with a bonus Connecticut Broadleaf milder smoke that Jaime Garcia is testing for the 2012 Limited Edition release. Your feedback on the Connecticut Broadleaf will actually decide if that cigar will go into production for next year.

Ok now that all of the logistics are out of the way we can get down to the real information – how does it smoke? This is one of the best cigars I’ve smoked this year. Appearance wise it is a beautiful maduro wrapper that looks very well constructed and firm to the touch. When you first light it up it has a peppery spice, almost salty, slightly carmel finish to it that evens out into a earthy and complex smoke. This is a very flavorful cigar from start to finish, you will burn your fingers!

Friday August 5th Jaime Garcia will be at Casa de Montecristo to release his new cigar. Be some of the first to smoke this fantastic Limited Edition Cigar and meet the man behind it all.

I was at the release event. I have to say Casa knows how to throw a party. On top of that, JG Res. 2011, was absolutely phenomenal. Easily worth the price. Great construction, even burn, nice amount smoke, and AWESOME flavor. Easily one of the best sticks of 2011.
