Corojo tobacco offers a rich and spicy flavor and aroma to cigars. Corojo wrappers are extremely oily and are typically a
dark reddish brown color. Many Corojo wrappers lend a full-bodied flavor with hints of pepper, earth, cedar, and cocoa. Corojo smokes have a spicy quality and peppery smoothness that is not for the faint of heart. Corojo wrappers are what originally gave Cuban cigars their famous “punch.”
Corojo tobacco originated in Cuba but is now grown in other regions, primarily the Jamastran Valley region of Honduras. Corojo stogies are extremely popular among many cigar aficionados.
