Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic are three of the most popular countries for premium cigar production. But what are the differences between the cigars that come out of these three places? Nimish Desai of Rocky Patel Cigars took a few minutes to explain to us the general characteristics of cigars from these three proud cigar producing countries.

Transcript:

Hi, my name is Nimish Desai. I’m with Rocky Patel Premium Cigars. People always ask me, “What are the flavor differences between Honduras and Nicaragua or Dominican Republic?” And you know what? It depends on the region, but in general Dominican cigars are very mellow in flavor. They’re very smooth, creamy tobaccos that come from there, and generally the tobaccos taste mellow in the cigar. From Honduras, the tobacco mainly comes from one region called Jamastra, and that tobacco is very sweet in nature. So if you want a cigar that has lots of sweetness to it, you’re going to have to have a lot of Jamastran tobacco.

And now my favorite tobacco comes from Nicaragua. And Nicaragua is all about bold, powerful, spicy tobacco. That’s where you get the flavors that add that spice. And now when you marinate tobaccos from those regions and many others, that’s where you get the richness and the complexity in a cigar.
