Unlike Discovery’s extremely popular documentary-filled Shark Week, the Dark Shark will be a new permanent fixture in your humidor, and we’re happy to have the opportunity this month to bring you the amusingly named Bigger Boat, which is a limited run size. This handmade starts with a solid Brazilian midnight-black Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, followed by a Sumatra binder and a feisty blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers. This combination leads to bold and smooth flavors of coffee beans, earth, and sweetness that you would come to expect from a maduro. This medium to full smoke is a perfect match for Bulleit Bourbon.
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.
