Some of the best cigars in the world come from the Dominican Republic. A large industry has been created in the country because of the ecological factors that allow tobacco to prosper in the Dominican Republic.
The tobacco is grown in the rich, fertile soils at the base of a mountain range surrounded by rivers in the Yaque Valley and the moist, tropical region of the Jacagua. The country has become one of the largest suppliers of Cuban-seed tobacco for fillers in the world.
In this article, you’ll discover the Dominican Republic’s deep cigar heritage and learn about the top notch cigars made by the greats like Ashton, Arturo Fuente and Romeo y Julieta. A wide variety of cigars can be found under the Dominican flag, from the mild ones to the stronger tastes.
A Little History
Following the Cuban trade embargo from the USA in the 1960’s, many of the best cigar-making families in Cuba relocated to other Central American countries to pursue their craft. With that, many moved to the Dominican Republic for its suitable climate and topography.
Dominican cigars are popular for their creamy, complex and approachable taste; but you’ll also find cigars with different taste profiles like cedar, cashews, almonds, coffee bean and buttered toast.
The Dominican Republic is the largest cigar producer in the world and although its cigars are milder than their counterparts in Cuba or Nicaragua, the tobacco products from this island offer a wide range for everyone with their individual preferences. The main production of the cigars takes place in the north of the island around the city of Santiago de los Caballeros.
As mentioned earlier, there is a wide variety of cigars that come from the Dominican Republic, they are as follows:
Full Bodied Cigars
Full bodied cigars have a stronger taste and feel heavy in the mouth and nose. This is because the sensory powers of the nose come into play when retrohaling the smoke. Some of the full bodied cigars in our supply are Ashton VSG Sampler, a premium blend made exclusively by Carlos Fuente Jr. We also have Partagas Black Label Magnífico, Gurkha Cellar Reserve Edicion Special 18 Year, La Gloria Cubana Serie R No 7 Maduro, Ashton VSG Corona Gorda and many others.
Medium Bodied Cigars
Medium bodied cigars are the bridge between full bodied cigars and mild cigars. The smoke is friendlier than the full bodied smoke and has more flavor than the mild cigar. We boast a collection of products like Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 858, Romeo Y Julieta 1875 Churchill, Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente Natural, Arturo Fuente Exquisito Maduro, Avo XO Intermezzo and many others.
Mild Bodied Cigars
Mild cigars have the friendliest flavor strength and smoke, making them suitable for beginners. Our collection boasts mild cigars like Ashton Corona, Casa De Garcia Connecticut Robusto, Macanudo Hampton Court, Ashton Prime Minister, Tatiana Mini Tins Groovy Blue, Montecristo White Toro and many others.
Clearly, it would be impossible to list our entire portfolio of decadent Dominican Cigars. Shop with us at gothamcigars.com for the widest array of Dominican smokes.
