Prepare for a complex, yet mellow, walk on the mild side! Signature Collection has long been a favorite among those seeking flavorful, mild to medium-bodied cigars. One look at its pointed head and stubbier pointed foot and you know it’s a Salomon, a shape that assures it’s loaded with tobacco. In the Signature’s case, it’s aged Cuban-seed long-fillers from Nicaragua. They’re wrapped in a glossy, burgundy-hued Honduran Corojo wrapper. Look for an excellent draw and a firm ash. Anticipate a surprisingly creamy smoke and nearly two hours of rich, hearty goodness per hefty stick characterized by bold notes of tobacco and earth with a touch of spice on a long finish. Consider pairing your Signature Collection Salomon with a small batch bourbon or your favorite cognac.
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.
