Leon Jimenes is one of the largest cigar lines in the Dominican Republic, and one of the oldest. Founded in 1903, the medium-bodied cigar that is Leon Jimenes made its way to the United States in the early 1970s. The production of the Leon Jimenes brand involves hand-selection of tobacco leaves, careful aging of up to three years, and finally hand-rolling of only perfect leaves. These long-fillers are then bound and wrapped in a silky Connecticut shade wrapper, delivering a deliciously complex flavor with notes of cream and caramel. A great cigar for any occasion, the Leon Jimenes is the epitome of a Dominican.
