This powerful Nicaraguan puro was hand crafted by the celebrated master blender Sr. Omar Ortez at Esteli's renowned Nicaragua-American Tobacco factory and reflects the time-honored traditions of pre-embargo Cuban cigar making. Dressed in a toothy, dark Nicaraguan wrapper, Omar Ortez Originals Maduro combines a bold mixture of Nicaraguan ligero long-leaf tobaccos with a hearty Nicaraguan binder. The result is a nice balance of flavor and strength, a robust smoke that’s rich in character with satisfying flavors. Granted the stick is a little rustic looking with lots of veins, but note it’s firm and has a nice heft in the hand. Look for a draw that’s just right, an excellent burn and a nice aroma from beginning to end. The light grey ash won’t hold long, a minor flaw. Expect notes of cocoa and nuts. Enjoy this stogie after a hearty meal with a chocolate stout or your favorite cup of coffee. The Omar Ortez Originals received a nice rating of ’90’ points by Cigar Insider which commented: "Covered in a rich, dark wrapper, this toasty cigar is full of woody, leathery flavors punctuated by nutty, earthy notes before a sweet cocoa finish. Medium to full bodied"
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.
