More About Cuban Cigars
When people talk about the country Cuba, great beaches, fascinating culture, rum, and music come to mind. Arguably, Cuba is just as famous for its Cuban Cigars. This northern Caribbean island has been growing tobacco for hundreds of years and making the best cigars since the time of King Phillip II of Spain, who lived between 1527 and 1598.
Many of the well-known cuban cigar brands have been around for over 150 years and the local farmers have gained a wealth of growing experience over many generations to draw from. In recent times Nicaraguan cigars, Dominican cigars and cigars from other non-Cuban origins are taking it up to the Cuban’s. However, many people continue to argue that Cuban remains to be the number one location to grow the plant. And the number one reason for that is Cuba’s soil.
What has made Cuban cigars so good for so long is the rich soil in which the tobacco is grown. That comes from four main regions; Pinar del Rio(inclusive of Vuelta Abajo), Partido, Remedios and Vuelta Arriba.
The Pinar del Rio province is a prime location to grow some of the best tobacco in the world. It is from here that many well-known Cuban Cigar Brands source high-quality wrapper leaves.
In Partido there are a bunch of tobacco plantations that have a very long history. They are renowned for cultivating plants with long-filler and short-filler Habanos leaves. Not far from Partido is the city of Havana. It is here where one will find most of the Habanos factories and many of the best stores to buy cuban cigars.
In the region of Vuelta Arriba there are two major tobacco-growing regions; Remedios and Oriente.
The soil and climate have their own distinctive character in these regions. Remedios is considered to be Cuba’s largest and oldest tobacco-growing region. The Remedios leaf is known by the names of ‘blending tobacco’ or ‘export tobacco’ - which reads far less sexy when translated from Spanish to English. Many famous Cuban cigars have leaves from the Remedios region in Cuba.
There are 27 brands that have the acclaimed title of a Habano. Some of the favourite and famous cuban cigar brands that hold this esteemed attribution include Cohiba Cigars, Hoyo de Monterrey Cigars,Montecristo Cigars, Cuaba Cigars, Partagas Cigars and Romeo v Julieta Cigars
