Latitude Zero is a fairly new boutique cigar brand that hails from one of the largest tobacco growers in the world, which also has one of the biggest libraries of premium tobacco leaves used in some of the most premium blends on the planet: Oliva Tobacco Company. What makes this high-end brand unique is that all of their cigars are crafted using the top 1% of their tobaccos, and the Latitude Zero El Centro in your shipment today is no exception. Handcrafted in Estelí, Nicaragua, this handmade smoke is crafted with the finest Cuban-seed Nicaraguan fillers and binder, and is then topped with a handsome Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf. An elegant, bold blend, this smoke boasts notes of caramel, cream, nuts, and oak. Medium to full in strength, the Latitude Zero El Centro is the perfect cigar for not only an everyday smoke, but also for outdoor gatherings and extracurriculars. Pair this smoke with a Cognac.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
