You may not have heard of the Board of the Bold, but you may know the names of this so called ‘committee’, Mike Ditka, Matt Booth, and Rob Weiss. They have been pumping out top-tiered blends delivering intensity and character, including the stick in your shipment today from Rob Weiss’ BG Meyer line. Loaded with character and intensity, this stick has a combined age of tobacco that is over 20 years! Refined from start to finish, the BG Meyer Gigantes starts with a luscious, dark chocolate-colored, oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper leaf that was cultivated in 2007 with a Brazilian Mata Fina binder aged for a minimum of six years. Finishing this stick is a blend of long-fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic, also aged for at least six years. Medium to full in body, give it a light and find bold notes of pepper, licorice, and lingering sweet spice with hints of leather. Pair this Cigar Aficionado 90-rated smoke with a Macallan 12yr Double Cask.
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.
