Handmade, Cuban-style stogies from the tobacco farms of the Dominican Republic. Many of the exiled Cuban cigar producers fled to the Dominican Republic after Castro nationalized the Cuban cigar industry and the US embargo on Cuban exports went into effect. Like Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic has the ideal climate and soil conditions for tobacco cultivation. Its main tobacco-growing region is very similar to the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba.
Ecuadorian wrapper gives the stogie a savory flavor that is enhanced by the smoothness of the Dominican binder and filler. Aficionados love the rich, Cuban-style flavor of these cigars. The masterful construction lends to its even burn and firm, white ash.
