While not as well publicized as Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, cigars made in Honduras are worthy of your attention. The country’s temperate climate is perfectly suited for growing bold, flavorful tobacco, which in turn creates a robust, characteristically-Honduran smoke.
Honduras rose to cigar-making prominence because Cuban exiles found the country’s soils to be ideal for growing tobacco, as some areas are very similar to Cuba’s Pinar del Rio region.
The majority of the leaf in Honduras is sun-grown. Cigars made with Honduran-grown leaf are noted for their earthy taste; some of the flavor is close to Nicaraguan varietals, as the countries are next door neighbors…so expect that earthy, nutty (and somewhat citrus-laden) flavor to be balanced with medium-full flavors that are rich, toasty, crisp and somewhat potent – with a fair amount of spice.
