Rico Barato Cigars

Rated 3.50 out of 5 based on 10 customer ratings
(10 customer reviews)


Rico Barato sets out to match rich flavor with an affordable shelf price. If you’re looking for a daily smoke that comes in three rich wrappers.


Rico Barato is less of a historical person and more of an idea. The names ‘Rico’ (Spanish for ‘Rich’), and Barato (Spanish for ‘Affordable’) both hit one a dream we had at Cigars Daily to offer a blend that has rich robust flavor, and is entirely affordable as an everyday smoke. Rico Barato comes in 3 wrappers (Connecticut, Cameroon, and Maduro), each with it’s own bend on rich flavor. The Connecticut offers creamy earthy grass and hay notes. The Cameroon is earthy with notes of wood, nuts, and earth. The Maduro is bold with dark chocolate and coffee notes. These sticks are well constructed Cuban sandwiches with consistently premium flavor.

    I have tried all th three wrappers and all of them were pretty good.

    Just as Tim says in his videos, this won’t knock your socks off. Still a great stick if you are moving around, mowing the lawn, etc.

    Put some in your humidor. You won’t be disappointed.

    Just had the maduro churchill and I was stunned on how perfect the burn and smoke was. The flavors reminded me of an old, dusty attic filled with cedar boxes and leather couch covers. The slight sweetness from the foot smoke made a pleasant combination of a classic “grandpa” cigar and a “fumas” of a good blend. Extremely light weight and had absolutely no issues with the draw. Paired well with a lime flavored La Croix. Definitely recommend for a fun and interesting smoking experience.

    Overall taste of the cigar was great. I bought the Maduros and it was not as strong as previous Maduros I have had. It was a smooth smoke and I really enjoyed it. Shared one with a buddy and he really enjoyed it as well. Only reason I rated it 4 stars was because the cap on mine was torn and as I smoked it, the wrapper began to unravel. I was able to still smoke but had to work a little to keep it on. I will be trying the other wrappers soon!

    I went to smoke the maduro torpedo last night after storing it in my humidor for several weeks. As I removed it from the wrapper, I was overwhelmed with a dirt/mildew odor. I did not see any mildew, so I cut it and took a few draws, which tasted just like it smelled. It was completely incapable of being smoked. I then checked all of the other cigars stored in the same humidor, for the same amount of time, and ensured no other cigar smelled like mildew. I decided to smoke the Obrigado, which was enjoyable, but was stilled bummed about the Rico Barato. If I had enjoyed it, I would have purchased the newly released cigarillos. That won’t be happening.

      Thank you for commenting. We’ll be looking into our current Rico Barato stock to make sure that there are none going out that smell like Mildew. Thank you for letting us know!

    I found the Maduro version of this stick to be a pleasant surprise. I expected a very simple flavor profile due to the low price, however I was quite pleased to see that every third had it’s own flavor. Overall a true bargain, as I’ve had cigars double this price that didn’t come close to this one.

    Tried to smoke a Rico Barrato Cameroon that was in Sampler #2 received several weeks ago and just could not get it to smoke, just as if it was packed too tight. The humidor is 72%. Even poking through with a small Phillips screwdriver did little to help the draw and could not keep it lit. Finally I just gave up and threw it it out. Then a box-pressed Rebellion was lit up for a delightful afternoon smoke. This was a major disappointment, but then, life is seldom perfect.

    Smoking the camaroon that came in the barrel bundle.

    Honestly I’m quite surprised. It’s a very good and mellow cigar. I’ll probably fill a humidor with them for a good everyday smoke or to give to friends.

    Very light cigar, I smoked the camaroon, and the smoke was very smooth and pleasant. I wish the flavor was slightly easier to pick up, but overall I picked up on a grassy/hay note with earthy finish. I was pleased because the finish didn’t leave your mouth dry, but like all cigars it left just a small after taste of tabacco. Overall it’s worth the money for the construction.

    Had my first Rico barato Connecticut in the beginners pack that Tim recommended for me and I absolutely loved it!!! Used his signature V cutter and wow…the taste the draw and smoke out put was amazing. Great stick and am definitely recommending for my friends.
