Luis Tomas Mendez may not be a household name, but he has been in the industry for years as a tobacco grower and dealer and has recently started manufacturing cigars in a factory located in Tamboril, Dominican Republic. Using the best tobaccos for his creations, the Brocatus features Domincan long-fillers and binder, and a smooth and enticing Connecticut-seed Ecuadorian wrapper. Nutty and oaky in flavor, they are balanced, smooth, and creamy, which makes this cigar perfect for anytime of day! As it is very mild in strength, try pairing it with a Cuban Coffee.
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.
