Troya is an old Cuban brand that was established in 1932. This non-Cuban version of the brand was introduced into the U. S. market in 1985. Donning a smooth Connecticut-seed wrapper, the Legacy is chock-full of aged, Cuban-seed long-fillers—Dominican Piloto Cubano and Olor tobacco, to be specific. The binder consists of the same fine tobaccos. The result is a smooth, well-balanced smoke that borders on mild bodied. Expect creamy, nutty flavors and an especially pleasant aroma. The Legacy will pair up nicely with a medium-bodied ale, bourbon or blended scotch.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
