At the time of the revolution in Cuba, Honduran tobacco growers had been turning out tasty Honduran cigars for more than a century. Of course, the game changed completely when Cuban cigar makers, fleeing nationalization, landed in Honduras. Cuban cigar masters brought their practices, traditions, and knowledge to places like Danli, El Paraiso, and the Jamastran Valley, which are now famous tobacco growing and cigarmaking locations. Cuban tobacco seed grew beautifully in the rich soil and near-perfect climate. Ultimately, Honduran tobacco with its full-bodied smoke and strong aromas found its way into premium cigars, and has been a part of many top-rated blends since.
Our top choices for a place to start with Honduran cigars include Rocky Patel the Edge and Punch Gran Cru. Other vitolas you’ll want to taste include Danli Reserve, La Fontana Vintage, Carlos Torano Casa Torano, and Comacho Corojo cigars (which some think of as the best Habano outside Cuba).
