The Boss Cigar Company first made their appearance in the tobacco industry in early 1996 with a production run of just over 600 boxes. Boss’ master blender is a third-generation Cuban tabacalero, whose factory in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, employs five seasoned Cuban master rollers. Blended by the famed Henke Kelner, Jr. in the Dominican Republic, this immaculately constructed cigar features a Brazilian Habano wrapper, a Dominican binder, and a smooth blend of long-fillers from Nicaragua, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. Light it up and find a room-pleasing aroma and complex yet soft flavors of coffee, wood, and dried fruit. Pair this exceptional cigar with a pilsner.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
