Meaning “where fertile land is abundant” Cubanacan is a small boutique brand based in Nicaragua where they not only embrace tradition, they strive to tell their story in each and every cigar. In 2006, Cubanacan made the move from their deeply rooted traditions in Cuba to planting their tobacco in the fertile grounds of Estelí and Jalapa, Nicaragua. Shortly thereafter, the Cubanacan factory was up and started producing premium handmade smokes including the one in your shipment today. The Cubanacan Sumatra Churchill starts with extensively aged, long-leaf Nicaraguan tobaccos that are secured by a Nicaraguan binder and finished with a dark and oily Sumatra wrapper. Once lit, this medium bodied smoke will produce complex notes of leather, spice, and oak with a lingering finish of coffee and slight nuttiness on the palate. Tasty down to the nub, our panel recommends pairing this smoke with an aged rum, such as The Real McCoy Single Blended 5 Year Aged Rum.
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.
