A few weeks ago, Dr. Garo Bouldoukian started sharing images of the cigar he’d be releasing for his namesake company’s 20th anniversary, but details were being withheld until the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show opened, and now we finally have details about it.
Garo 20th Anniversary
Bouldoukian calls it “the culmination of more than two decades of passion and experience in the manufacture of some of the world’s finest cigars.” He’s releasing two sizes, but measuring 6 1/2 x 54 but one coming with a belicoso head and the other as a traditional toro parejo. The flavor is billed as being bold and complex, with notes of coffee, leather and soft baking spices, with supplementing notes of earth and nuts leading to a finish reminiscent of a Speyside single malt. While he’s initially producing 5,000 of each size he might end up increasing production to 10,000 of each size, something he said would be a fitting tribute of producing 20,000 cigars of his 20th anniversary blend.
