Tony Borhani, owner and proprietor of Bahia Cigars, is considered by many to be one of the cigar industry's most influential leaders. His famed brand was originally manufactured in the Costa Rican Tabacalera Tambor factory under the supervision of Don Douglas and Tony himself, from their inception in 1997, with production later migrating to Nicaragua in 2001. The Bahia Gold is their flagship cigar. This is a well aged cigar—let's review: the filler is comprised of four to five year aged Dominican Ligero, Seco and Viso leaves; the binder is four year aged Dominican leaf, and the wrapper is a four year aged Ecuadorian sun grown, Sumatran-seed leaf. So, four years or more of aging on every leaf in this cigar might seem enough, but after rolling, they're laid down for another full year to mature! Expect firm spiciness in this full-bodied cigar, balanced by earthy flavors in the finish. Note the firm white ash, a clear sign of not only age, but properly aged tobaccos. While this cigar is already older than most kids starting their scholastic careers, it will keep in your humidor for years to come. Enjoy with a XO Cognac or a dirty martini (shaken, not stirred, of course).
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.
