Dominican Republic



Just released from Pinar del Rio from the Dominican Republic is the Sol Cubano Special Dark Toro. The wrapper is what makes this cigar unique; it may look similar to a Habano wrapper but it’s actually an Ecuadorian Habano Ocsuro leaf that is taken from a higher priming off the tobacco plant. This creates a lingering sweetness that will build in strength. The inside is packed with long fillers of Nicaraguan ligero Criollo, Nicaraguan seco Criollo, and Dominican long leaves which is then bound with a Dominican leaf. This mixture will create flavors of earth, coffee, cedar, and pepper, finishing with a lingering sweetness from the Ecuadorian Habano Ocsuro wrapper. This full bodied cigar can be best enjoyed with a nice ice cold cola.
Though tobacco is indigenous to Hispaniola, the tobacco industry in the Dominican Republic existed in the shadow of Cuba’s dominance through the 1960s. When the exodus of Cuban cigar makers began in the wake of the revolution, many decided the Dominican Republic would be ideal for the resumption of their livelihoods. Unrest in Nicaragua in the 1980s fueled the Dominican cigar industry further. The country now makes more than half of the premium cigars imported into the U.S. The Cibao Valley and the nearby city of Santiago are the center of cigar production in the Dominican Republic. Three main varieties are grown here: the mild and native Olor Dominicano; the intense Piloto Cubano, brought from the Vuelta Abajo of Cuba; and San Vicente, a milder and more acidic Piloto hybrid. Dominican puros were once unheard of as it was widely thought impossible to grow quality wrapper leaf on the island, but new growing techniques are now allowing some exceptional puros to be produced.
