Originally introduced in 1996, this Cuban favorite has received a makeover and became an immediate hit when it was reintroduced in 2006. Now made in Honduras, this behemoth features a tantalizing dark and toothy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with a second Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper acting as the binder. Underneath those rich tobaccos is a bold combination of Nicaraguan long-fillers that provides a rich, full-bodied smoke and flavors of chewy cocoa, coffee, and semi-sweet spices. This excellently constructed cigar was hit with our tasting panel, and we paired it with an Irish Whiskey.
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.
