The Bohemian Revolution Sidewinder is manufactured by Victor Sinclair Cigars and hand rolled in the Dominican Republic. This is an aesthetically beautiful cigar, constructed of a delicious long filler tobacco blend of Dominican leaves and binder; encased in a handsome Dominican Corojo wrapper. We found it a medium to full bodied smoke, providing lots of rich tobacco flavor. Look for an easy draw with a spicy, pleasing aroma up front. Its flavor offers some spiciness which is complemented nicely with notes of coffee, nuts, and earth. Note plenty of smoke volume. We loved it! Consider pairing it with your favorite Belgian pale ale.
Though tobacco is indigenous to Hispaniola, the tobacco industry in the Dominican Republic existed in the shadow of Cuba’s dominance through the 1960s. When the exodus of Cuban cigar makers began in the wake of the revolution, many decided the Dominican Republic would be ideal for the resumption of their livelihoods. Unrest in Nicaragua in the 1980s fueled the Dominican cigar industry further. The country now makes more than half of the premium cigars imported into the U.S.
The Cibao Valley and the nearby city of Santiago are the center of cigar production in the Dominican Republic. Three main varieties are grown here: the mild and native Olor Dominicano; the intense Piloto Cubano, brought from the Vuelta Abajo of Cuba; and San Vicente, a milder and more acidic Piloto hybrid. Dominican puros were once unheard of as it was widely thought impossible to grow quality wrapper leaf on the island, but new growing techniques are now allowing some exceptional puros to be produced.
