One the best-selling brands in the United States, Baccarat has also become a staple for novices and experts alike. Rolled by the experts at the legendary Camacho factory in Honduras, this smoke is full of Havana-seed Honduran long-fillers along with a zesty Mexican binder, with a handsome Connecticut wrapper to top it all off. Another signature of this cigar is the use of an older tradition: using a sweet gum to apply the cap to the cigar. With this addition, there is an added layer of sweetness to each puff without it being too sweet. In addition to light sweetness you’ll also find notes of coffee and toast. Mellow and perfect for any time of day, enjoy this classic smoke with an espresso.
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.
