You may not have heard of the name, but you've no doubt smoked the cigars. Fabrica de Tabacos Raíces Cubanas S. de R.L. in Danli, Honduras produces some of the most sought-after cigars in the world. You'll find such famous stogies as Viaje, Illusione and Alec Bradley rolling out of the factory on any given day.
Now, owners and operators Romay Endemaño, his wife Maria Portao and his son Hugo, having made these award-winning cigars for years, decided to produce a cigar of their own. With the help of Alec Bradley, the Raíces Cubanas 1941 was born, which was unveiled at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.
These beautiful cigars feature two binders, one Nicaraguan and the other Honduran, with a mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan long fillers. The Raíces Cubanas 1941 is finished with a consistent and smooth Honduran wrapper. Raíces Cubanas 1941 has already earned widespread praise with its complexity, flavor and smoothness. These medium-bodied cigars provide flavors of white and black pepper, toffee, leather and earth among others. Try these cigars and you're guaranteed to have a new staple for the humidor.
