heart of a Griffin's cigar, the filler, maintains a blend consisting of
three carefully selected tobaccos from different crops.
Named after the famous mythical creature, The Griffin's Cigars are harvested in the Cibao Valley, the most fertile valley in the Dominican Republic. The Griffin's filler maintains a harmonious blend of these select tobaccos from the finest harvests. Each is hand-rolled, exactingly wrapped in Connecticut shade leaves and hand-packaged with elegance and distinction, resulting in a pleasing and flavorful taste.
You can recognise a Griffin's Maduro cigar by its darker wrapper leaf. The name «Maduro» means mature, ripe in Spanish. These new Maduro cigars are made with a special broadleaf wrapper leaf which is planted in Connecticut, USA, and then left to grow in the sun. The broadleaf variety is a bigger and structurally stronger leaf which is well able to withstand the rigorous fermentation process involved in producing the finished chocolate coloured wrapper leaf. This additional process taking around three months, gives the wrapper leaf not only its beautiful dark colour, but also a slightly sweet taste and strong aroma.
