Ever since Santa Fe started marketing its tobacco as natural and organically grown, people that smoke noticed the difference in how their operation is run.
Of course there was a challenge over the use of the word natural- but in the end, the message got through. The company seeks to redefine tobacco smoking by using environmentally friendly growing practices and cutting-edge blending and curing. Their facilities in Santa Fe are set up so that tourists can visit and see how the cigars and cigarettes that they manufacture are made. The company is also very involved in the community, volunteering many hours on community projects.
One of the most popular results of their tobacco research and production, Santa Fe little cigars, come in a 20 pack and a variety of flavors. Although they will not last all night like larger cigars will, the company factored in the notion that active people are not likely to be in a position to continuously smoke a larger cigar when they are in a social setting. Instead, they cater to people who are expecting to be able to smoke in a social setting for a few minutes at a time.
The cigars therefore last for several minutes and provide a cigar experience that many cigarette smokers find compatible with their own tastes in tobacco. In looking at their features, one addition to Sante Fe cigars that is not present in many other cigars is a filter. From a user standpoint, having a filter removes some of the harshness that may otherwise be experienced while smoking.
Three of the most popular flavors are fruit-oriented: grape, strawberry, and peach. The tobacco is organically-grown and then cured before being blended by one of the top blenders in the United States. The flavors are then added to enhance the smoking experience.
In addition to the fruit flavors, menthol, mild, and regular flavors are available at most cigar shops and tobacco counters throughout the country.
As an entry-level cigar, many people that want to try something new will appreciate Sante Fe cigars. They are easy to inhale from and usually generate a lighter smoke than what people experience when they smoke cigarettes.
