Flor de Copan cigars are handmade in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. This hillside region is where Mayan Indians once grew tobacco and it remains a key tobacco-farming region in Honduras.
The tobacco used for these cigars is of Cuban origin (Vuelta Abajo region), brought to Honduras in 1962 and since grown in Santa Rosa, El Paraiso and Santa Barbara. The cigars are made in the Flor de Copan cigar factory, the sam factory once responsible for Zino, Fellipe Gregorio and Don Melo cigars prior to their purchase by Altadis in 1997. Output of the factory is a staggering 20 million sticks per year.
The brand is distinguished by its highly attractive packaging, cedar-wrapped natural cigars and the gold rose emblem, the “Mark of Distinction”. The natural cigars feature an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with light spice and wood flavours.
Although this cigar has a large ring gauge it is quite mild. The perfect cigar for the novice or experienced smoker. A word of advice: take the cedar sleeve off before lighting. We’ve seen videos of people that did not, believe it or not!
