Doral, Florida, February 16, 2023 – After many years in the works, George Rico is happy to introduce his latest project, the self-titled George Rico El Enemigo under his G.A.R. brand. El Enemigo will debut at the 2023 TPE trade show in Las Vegas and will be shipping out in April. The cigars are manufactured at the TabaDom Factory in the Dominican Republic by its expert rollers and will come in three sizes named El Insulto (5 x 52), El Duelo (6 x 54), and El Triunfo (6 x 60). The cigars will be exclusive to the participating 20th Aniversario ultra-premium account holders, which number 200 retailers nationwide. Only 1000 boxes of each size will be available for the first year and will be in limited production subsequently.
“After many years of creating projects at my Gran Habano factory, I have decided to enter my R?nin stage in my blending journey. I hope to continue to learn from others and elevate my craft of blending cigars. This process has led me to my first project “El Enemigo” outside of my factory at one of the most established cigar factories in the Dominican Republic. I am truly in love with the final blend. It is something totally different than what I have smoked from the factory and gives a completely different perspective on how the same tobaccos can smoke when blended differently. I look forward to more collaborations in the years to come and I hope that you can enjoy my blend utilizing unique tobaccos and rolling techniques.” – George A. Rico
