The Vigilante Corojo is a one of a kind cigar, boasting a highly unusual Connecticut Corojo wrapper that’s dark, well-aged, and bursting with bold flavors. This is matched perfectly to an intricate array of long filler tobaccos including Dominican Piloto Cubano, American Broadleaf, Nicaraguan Viso, and a smaller amount of Mexican Ligero. This well-balanced mixture lends the cigar a rich, full-flavored smoke of pepper, earth, coffee and cedar overlaying a strong core of tobacco flavors, making this medium to full bodied cigar a bold and spicy treat. This cigar has been off the market for some time and has recently been reintroduced by one of the most prestigious factories in Nicaragua which is home to several cigars with ratings over 90.
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.
