Felipe Gregorio is the maker of numerous 90-rated lines with many routinely fetching big dollars in high-end retail shops across the country. Enter Felipe II: a medium-bodied handmade from Honduras that utilizes all-Honduran long-fillers and an oily Sumatra wrapper. The triple cap and solid construction—absolutely no soft spots—speak to the caliber of the smoke to come. The cigar draws well and burns evenly, producing a beautiful solid white ash. Look for a smooth smoke with an array of creamy earth flavors, a touch of herbs, and notes of nutmeg and pepper in the finish. This delicious cigar is medium-bodied with a peppery flavor. Beer lovers might consider a nice hoppy IPA as a pairing. Speaking of beer, remember we do offer a great Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club. Not a member?

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.
