One of the hardest working men in the cigar industry, Rocky Patel has done it again by creating another masterpiece. Wanting to create a darker version of his already hugely popular and super approachable Connecticut line, Rocky and his team managed to do just that with the Broadleaf line. Medium in strength, this stogie features a dark and rich Connecticut Broadleaf that encases a hearty blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers and a zesty Mexican binder. Smooth, complex, and cool, this stogie features notes of espresso, honey, pepper, and cocoa. This one is sure to please both the novice and veteran smoker, and our panel recommends pairing it with a dark rum.
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.
