Expertly crafted, you don’t have to roll the dice on this cigar or place any bets because it’s already a jackpot! Debuting at the 2013 IPCPR show, the Casino Gold HRS was created in Honduras by the legendary cigar master blenders Nestor Plasencia Sr. & Jr. Just by looking at it, you can see the excellent construction with its impeccable single cap and the gorgeous Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper that secures a Honduran cameroon binder and Honduran long-fillers. These high rollers aren’t done yet as they are then laid down for a nap for months to age in cedar-lined rooms. Upon lighting, you’ll get pepper, cocoa, earth, and spice, with hints of sweetness and cream. Enjoy it with an ale.
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.
