The Taino people were pre-Columbian inhabitants of the Bahamas. The word Taino is derived directly from Christopher Columbus. The first people that he encountered on his voyage to the "New World", were these Caribbean people. He called them "Tainos", which meant good or noble. A group of the "Tainos Indians", even accompanied Columbus back to Spain. When the well-known company Nino Vasquez decided to release their new blend, the name Taino simply fit. Perhaps Vasquez wanted to conjure up images of a simpler life, prior to when the Tainos met Columbus. When the stress of bills, gas, and other daily hassles simply didn't exist. Everyone enjoyed their life and lived off the land. The El Taino cigar takes you back to that place and provides you with the opportunity to escape.
Taino cigars are offered in either a Brazilian Maduro, or a luscious mild Connecticut wrapper. The Taino Brazilian Maduro cigar has excellent construction, a nice aroma and a rich full-bodied flavor. This cigar packs quite the punch, as it has three different blends of eight year old Cuban seed Ligero that was grown in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
The Taino Connecticut cigar is made up of only the finest tobacco grown in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic and the Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua. These areas are well known for their fertile soil, and ideal conditions for growing tobacco. For the Taino Connecticut cigar, both the Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco is aged for eight years, to ensure quality and flavor. The cigar enthusiasts over at Nino Vasquez even decided to put in a hint of tobacco from Perif to add a little bit of spice. The Connecticut shade grown wrapper is hand selected from Ecuador. The Taino Connecticut cigar is the perfect cigar for the medium-bodied smoker. It's a great everyday cigar, as it has rich creamy flavors along with hints of spice. Offered in three sizes, you simply can't go wrong with this cigar. Give us a call at 1-888-41-CIGAR and buy a box today!
