Hold this bold, top-shelf handmade in your palm prior to lighting just to feel the heft. Run your fingertips up, down and around this dark beauty to better appreciate its smooth, oily Nicaraguan-grown, Habana-seed wrapper. The pre-light aroma is equally enjoyable, woody, spicy, with some barnyard in the mix. Well constructed, the cigar is solid from head to toe. You're in for a full-bodied smoking adventure. Handmade in Nicaragua, the Africa by Don Lino features an exotic blend of premium tobaccos from Africa, yes, but also from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The filler leaves have been patiently fermented and extensively aged. To spice up the cigar even more, Don Lino includes some of the world's finest Cameroon wrapper leaf in the filler. Expect an even burn, a medium draw and thick plumes of smoke. You'll discover subtle spices initially that quickly fade away as the cigar becomes rich and chewy, almost bready in character with equally prominent hints of sweet tobacco, coffee bean, and cedar. Enjoy Don Lino with a top-shelf single malt (Lagavulin or Oban come to mind), an India Pale Ale, or a hoppy Barleywine.

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.
