The Humo Jaguar cigar brand was created for the annual Humo Jaguar Festival held in Honduras. At this event blenders from all over the world create their special cigars to compete with other cigar makers, which are then judged by over 200 judges who smoke all of the blends and then decide on a winner for the festival. And if you haven't already guessed. the Humo Jaguar has earned the distinction as winner of the Humo Jaguar Festival cigar competition. The blend was created and made by the “Don of Tobacco,” Nestor Plasencia for La Aurora and Miami Cigar Company.
Humo Jaguar is hand-made using 100% Honduran tobaccos, starting with aged Honduran fillers bound together with a La Ermita binder from the Talanga valley. The finishing touch on this cigar is a dark oily Honduran Viso Oscuro wrapper grown in Jamastran. The result is a full-bodied cigar loaded with complex flavors, that start with hefty amounts of black pepper and transition into a smooth, rich smoke about 1/3 into the cigar. The flavors really start to shine towards the middle when hints of chocolate notes coming from the wrapper are picked up. The cigar is very well-balanced at this point and continues to deliver a long chewy flavorful finish. The Humo Jaguar blend is not your father’s Honduran cigar and those customers who are not Honduran fans will be very impressed by this Honduran puro.
