Don Tomás cigars have been the pride of Honduras for generations. Released in August 2007, this Honduran puro is no different, even earning a 90 point rating from Cigar Aficionado. Painstakingly handcrafted in the old fashion, this handmade uses carefully aged long-fillers and binder, and is cloaked with a leathery brown sun-grown Honduran Connecticut wrapper. Together, this medium-bodied smoke has a tasty bouquet of earth and tobacco with a sweet spicy finish. Perfectly constructed, enjoy this baby with a scotch.
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.
