Nicarao cigars are known for their ultra-boutique handmade masterpieces and you may have even come across them a time or two since they have been around a while. What you may not know is that the name comes from the sixteenth century when Spanish Conquistador Gil Gonzalez Dávila became the first European to come to Central America. The native leader, Chief Nicarao, gave the Conquistador brown leaves to smoke. The Conquistador was impressed and named the new region Nicaragua after the Chief. The rest, as they say, is history. The Nicarao Havana Sun Grown is a medium bodied cigar chocked full of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers which are secured with a Nicaraguan binder and a dark Sun Grown Habano wrapper. This is a great mid-day cigar so try pairing it with a Sprite.
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.
