Meaning “Free Cuba”, Cuba Libre is known for making great premiums and selling them at affordable prices. With the Magnum you get the biggest bang for your buck! This medium-to-full-bodied, box-pressed Honduran with its toothy, deep-medium-brown Cuban-seed Corojo wrapper is a beauty. The fillers are Cuban-seed, long-leaf tobaccos that have been aged eight months in Nestor Plasencia's aging rooms before being wrapped. The result is a buttery smooth smoke layered with robust but perfectly balanced flavors. Initially it burns slow, but there's nothing sluggish about the flavor profile. This vitola has a tremendous depth of flavor—a rich spiciness with complex notes of wood and earth. Less than a third of the way into the cigar, panelists noted a slight sweetness and very subtle vanilla taste. Then it evolved into a mature and mellow smoke, with a hearty core of earth and leather with toasty notes, and a lingering finish. Look for volumes of smoke and pair with none other than a Cuba Libre (rum and coke)!
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.
