Hunters & Frankau’s Aged & Rare collection consists of cigars that have been matured for a minimum of ten years in our warehouse and every box is marked with a 10+, 15+ or 20+ to indicate the number of years since they were rolled, boxed and dispatched from the factories of Cuba. It is estimated that the first 2019 Aged & Rare releases make up no more than 5,000 cigars in total.
However, it is not only their age that makes House Reserve cigars especially rare. Some of the releases have additional noteworthy features. These features can be seperated into three categories: First Releases, Discontinued Lines and Limited Editions, Regional Editions, Reservas & Gran Reservas.
Identifying Aged & Rare cigars
Before a box is released from House Reserve every single cigar has been checked by fully-trained Habanos s.a. quality technicians, specially flown in from Cuba for the purpose. Boxes that meet their approval are stamped ‘Revisado’, which means ‘Checked’.
A Release Certificate is also affixed to the outside of every box which is signed by our Warehouse Manager.
Finally, each individual cigar is dressed with a footband confirming that it is Aged & Rare and comes from Hunters & Frankau’s House Reserve.
