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 that is 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 Signature Gordo in your shipment today is no exception. This stunner comes dressed in a speckled Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that secures a Nicaraguan Habano binder and a bevy of fillers that consist of Nicaraguan Habano, Dominican Habano, and Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco leaves. Medium to full in body, this smoke will lend complex notes of pepper, leather, cream and spice. Enjoy this smoke with a Flor de Caña 25 Year Rum or your favorite aged rum.
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.
