We really like this cigar company. They continuously impress us with their newest line introductions and although we have featured their Dominican line, their Honduran line is also impressive. Meticulously made by Rocky Patel and rolled in Honduras, this smoke features a gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper holds a Dominican binder and Honduran long-leaves. We found the Bison Pyramid featured this month on the mild to medium tasting end of the spectrum, leaning towards mild with notes of white pepper, tobacco, cedar, and hints of cream and toast which will build in strength throughout the smoke. The panel was unanimously enthusiastic about the Indian Tabac Limited Reserve series. Highlights of this cool-smoking and handsome cigar include superb construction, a consistent draw, and an exemplary flavor which is subtle and refined, but hearty and satisfying. Overall, very enjoyable. You’ll want more. Smoke it with a Ketel One with a twist.
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.
