Cultivation places

Hand-made cigars are produced mainly in Cuba, Dominicana, Ecuador, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Brazil, Mexico, The Philippines and the USA. Very often, only on the basis of observation, one can approximately evaluate the country of the cigar’s origin. The experts are able to distinguish characteristic features, which enables the recognition of specific styles connected with a given country. However, this task is made difficult by producers, as they import tobacco blends from different countries and do not base only on local cultivation.
