Although Villazon isn’t a household name just yet, the Villazon factory is world renowned and some consider it a landmark within the cigar industry. While you many not know the Villazon name, you probably know the cigars that have come out of it, such as the original non-Cuban Punch, Hoyo de Monterrey, and Excalibur to name a few. Hailing from Honduras, the Villazon Natural comes topped with a choice Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that has been patiently aged, followed by a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and a tri-country blend of Colombian, Dominican, and Honduran fillers. Mild to medium in strength, expect notes of natural tobacco sweetness, cream, and hints of pepper. Perfect for any time of day, enjoy this smoke with a spicy ginger beer.
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.
