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 for cigars 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.
Now, who’s ready for some Honduran cigar 5-packs?
Here you’ll find some of the best premium cigars from top brands in the region (as well as some cigar makers outside the region that put Honduran tobacco to good use). 5-packs of cigars from Alec Bradley, Macanudo, Rocky Patel, Romeo y Julieta, Asylum, Hoyo de Monterrey, Illusione, Punch, and more can all be found in our Honduran five-pack section. These cigar blends display the character that Honduran tobacco is famous for. While Nicaragua and Cuba have their signature spice notes, Honduras is right there with them, putting its own spin on cigars thanks to the unique qualities of the soil there.
If you’re a big fan of cigars, you might find that Honduran tobacco and cigars have been put in the backseat somewhat, due to the fame of Cuban, Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Ecuadorian tobacco, but Honduran cigars have won a number of awards. Some of the best examples are the Alec Bradley Prensado (96-rated, incredibly lush), Punch Rare Corojo (aromatic and woody), and Rocky Patel The Edge Corojo (showcasing a tasty combo of caramel, cocoa, and pepper).
A Honduran cigar 5 pack is an excellent way to add some variety to your humidor if you’ve been puffing away on the more mainstream cigars and need a bit of a change. It also makes these five-packs a great gift for the cigar lover in your life. He or she may not be thinking of Honduran smoke at the moment, but after you bust out a fiver of some of the country’s best cigars, your gift will be among the more memorable and appreciated ones, trust us. Once they pop one out of the pack, clip it, light it up, and take a few draws, they’ll be wondering why Honduran cigars aren’t getting more press. Then they’ll realize that it only means there’s more Honduran tobacco for them to enjoy, and they’ll silently puff away with a smile on.
