  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian HBA
  • Binder: Olor Dominican
  • Filler: Special Blend

Construction:

The passion for cigars overtook Dr. Garo Bouldoukian in 1995, taking him away from his private chiropractic practice and into the world of boutique cigars. His eye for detail and quality was honed correcting ailments and pains and lead to a perfect pairing for the creation of his own brand: Garo Cigars. Surrounding his hand-picked blend of tobaccos with the light Ecuadorian wrapper creates the layers and sublties that the Garo brand has made itself known for. The Olor Dominican tobacco, one of the native strains of the Dominican, acts as the bridge between the softer wrapper and the bolder tobacco filler.

Draw:

One of the most surprising things about the Garo Limitada was how smooth and easy the draw was. Contrasting the robust spicy aroma of the smoke, the cool draw balanced the experience, letting the more subtle flavors shine through. The layers of of the Ecuadorian were wrapped beautifully, allowing air to bring many of sweeter notes forward to compliment the bold tobacco.

Burn:  

As the cigar started I was worried that the breathy draw was going to cause an uneven burn and in turn, creating more work for me correcting, but I was amazingly wrong. The nearly hour smoke never required a correction or a relight. With an even burn adding to the ease of the Garo, I continued to be impressed with its construction and balance.
