Having worked in the cigar industry in various capacities, trained chef Patrick LeFils tested his mettle and founded Common Roots cigars in 2014. Handcrafted at the up-and-coming TACASA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, the Common Roots toro you have in your shipment today features a chocolate brown Ecuadorian Habano Café wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and a robust blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. This medium to full-bodied cigar has complex flavors of charred oak, orange peel, and leather with hints of vanilla and pepper. Made for everyday enjoyment, this stogie is sure to earn a place in your regular rotation. Try pairing it with a Highland Whiskey.
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.
