The Bohemian Black Ocsuro is handcrafted by Victor Sinclair in the Dominican Republic. The Bohemian Black comes filled with Dominican long-fillers that are hugged by a 5-year-old olor Dominican binder and topped with an ultra-dark oscuro wrapper complete with a pig tail top. Even though this smoke looks like it will knock your socks off, it’s actually mild to medium in body. Light ‘er up and expect big billowing clouds of smoke with complex flavors of roasted nuts, wood and spices. Perfect for any time of day, enjoy this smoke with an espresso roast on a lazy Sunday morning.
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.
