The Baccarat Candela is manufactured by Tobacos Rancho Jamastran, deep in the heart of the Jamastran Valley of Honduras. This region has the perfect soil and a similar climate to Cuba’s renowned Vuelta Abajo region. The company started over 25 years ago and now employs more than 3,300 people and will produce more than 15 million cigars this year, including the La Fontana and Camacho brands. The Baccarat Candela is a sure win even if you can’t win at the tables. Inside is a plethora of Havana-seed Honduran long-filler that is under a Mexican binder and a stunning green Candela wrapper. Together, notes of coffee and sweetness come through on this very mellow smoke. Pair it with a Pilsner.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
