The Palo Prieto hails from the Aguilar family and they been in the cigar making/rolling business for over 125 years, so it is safe to say that they know a thing or two about cigars. This boutique handmade starts with a dazzling blend of hand-selected Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo long-fillers that is tightly held together with a Dominican Corojo binder and a handsome, flawless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that is completed with a gold foil sleeve. Once lit, this medium-bodied handmade will have flavors of a rich and creamy core that is accompanied by notes of leather, cedar, and spice on the finish. Our panelists loved this cigar and suggested pairing it with a Riesling.
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.
