The Cremo Grandeur is the fourth cigar released by Cremo Cigars.
I Googled “Grandeur” and the definition is “splendor and impressiveness, especially of appearance or style.” I am really hoping this cigar lives up to its name.
At the time this review was published, Cremo Cigars did not respond to my requests for more information on the Grandeur.

Quick Note: For this review we used my rating system. You can view it in detail here.
On the light, there are notes of hay, grass, and mint. There is a very nice floral spice present on the retrohale. Out of the gate, the body is mild+ and strength is medium+. The finish is very short. I was expecting, based on the other Cremo releases, to have more pepper, but it wasn’t there. There are underlying earthy tones and few faint notes of salt.
There is smoothness to the smoke, and it has a very clean finish. There are notes of musk and cream. The ash, which holds on nicely, is a nice salt and pepper color.
As I smoke into the middle of the cigar, I can say, without a doubt, the construction is top notch. The Grandeur changes into more of medium body cigar. There are very faint notes of black pepper while the hay, earth, and musk still dominate.
The more I smoke into the Grandeur, the strength moves from medium+ to mild+.
Into the final third, the Grandeur shows me more of the same in terms of body and flavors. The end finished a lot like it started.
Conclusion: I was disappointed in the Grandeur. I really enjoyed the Cremo Classic and loved the Cremo Capa Caliente. Both of these cigars were multi-dimensional and complex, and had great body and depth of flavors. The Grandeur, while not a bad cigar, is very straightforward and doesn’t show much transition. I could see someone who likes Connecticuts with coffee enjoying the Grandeur, but it wasn’t for me.
Overall Rating: 85 AKA “Couple”
