The Padilla La Terraza Connecticut was named after a bar in the famous fishing village of Cojimar, Cuba. After a long day’s work, locals and fisherman would gather at the famous La Terraza bar to drink, relax, and smoke some cigars. This restaurant was visited by Ernest Hemingway and is considered to be a tourist attraction as well as a favorite by the locals. Master blender Ernesto Padilla has created quite a stir with this blend that features a smooth and creamy Nicaraguan Connecticut wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and long leaf fillers. Medium to mild in body, this smoke features notes of cedar and sweetness. The name is perfect for this cigar as it is well suited for any time of day when you need to sit down and relax with a drink and smoke. We found ourselves relaxing with a juicy hazy IPA after a long day at the office.
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.
