We bring you this powerful, full-bodied and extraordinarily flavorful beauty from the cigar capital of Nicaragua, Esteli. Handmade by Nestor Plasencia, the blend is cloaked by a dark and fragrant Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper grown from Habano-seed. Thick and oily, this leaf—which oozes flavor—is a marvel to look at. The true power of this cigar comes from its long-leaf combination of extensively aged, all-ligero tobaccos from Peru and Nicaragua. The Cu-Avana Intensus delivers a burst of flavor on the palate with a hearty, spicy core and an underpinning of dense, earthy, oaky notes. Full bodied from start to finish, the flavors evolve throughout the slow burn, becoming increasingly intense right down to the nub. Look for a long, satisfying finish. This is a cigar you can enjoy outdoors while golfing or just relaxing in the hammock with a dark ale. Better yet, dust off the grill for an early summer or Memorial Day picnic. We can help you have the essentials on hand to kick off the summer: microbrewed beers to quench your thirst, boutique cheeses for a gourmet-style appetizer and, of course, fresh cut flowers for the table. All these and more are available through our various monthly clubs—check out our full range of gourmet and boutique offerings at www.monthlyclubs.com and let the summer begin!
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.
