When some of the best Cuban cigar makers left Cuba after the revolution to pursue their dreams freely, many landed in the Dominican Republic. There they hit pay dirt – literally! The soil there proved to be even better than expected, and cigars using DR tobacco have been hitting top-25 cigar charts ever since. These cigar 5-packs feature premium cigars from the DR’s best brands like Arturo Fuente, E.P. Carillo, La Flor Dominicana, Ashton, Aging Room, Davidoff, Montecristo, and Romeo y Julieta. With each world-class brand rolling up a bundle cigars there, the DR is firmly in the top few nations when it comes to tobacco for cigars, and you can find a five pack to suit your palate no matter what your preferences are.
The Dominican tobacco in each pack is known for being full-flavored and complex. While Nicaragua, another leading tobacco-growing region, is known for a nice peppery kick, Dominican cigars in these 5 packs tend to reveal classic flavor notes like malty chocolate, leather, and a spice aroma that tends toward baking spices instead of pepper. It’s a uniquely dessert-based flavor profile that you get from these cigars. Of course, through different tobacco seed varietals and growing methods, the multidimensional character of the best Dominican cigars and brands is shown in each 5 pack. There are mild cigars that use shade-grown wrappers for a relaxing and subtle smoking experience. There are full strength intense cigars that draw potency from the dark soil to display the complete array of flavors that Dominican cigars can show. There is also a bundle of blends in between.
So long as you like a blend with personality, you’ll get what you want from these Dominican cigar five packs.
Certainly, no family among the top cigar brands has been more influential in bringing Dominican cigars to the attention of the world than the Fuente family. The patriarch, Arturo, passed on his immense cigar knowledge, talent, and skill to son Carlos. Now, the tradition of classic cigars continues with his grandson, Carlitos. It was the Fuentes who first pioneered the use of the island’s tobacco as a wrapper leaf in the cult classic OpusX cigar line. Five packs of Arturo Fuente OpusX cigars still showcase the character that made the blend famous those many years ago.
As we said above, there is a bundle of cigar companies that favor tobacco from the DR to create their premium cigar blends, and each pack shows a different side of their capabilities. Ashton and Davidoff are world-famous for using Dominican tobacco along with Connecticut shade wrappers to create some of the best mild cigars available. Macanudo also has been one of the best-selling cigars for decades in America thanks to the quality of its tobacco. And of course, La Flor Dominicana has a Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year win for the Andalusian Bull cigar line and its unforgettable blend of Dominican tobaccos to smoke. Our five-packs feature a wealth of high-quality cigars and we simply can’t name them all in this text or we’ll be here all day. Hopefully, you’ll find a few cigars that speak to you and light up sooner rather than later.
In la Republica Dominicana, the soil is rich, the tobacco plants are green, and the cigar factories are busily rolling up some of the world’s very best cigars for your next cigar smoke session.
