We have traveled to Ecuador to discover a magic valley on the north western coastal region of this small South American country. The valleys located in the provinces of Guayas and Manabi provide natural shade all year around, perfect for the production of fine tobacco. We discovered that most of the largest producers of cigars in the world own or lease land to produce their wrapper and blends leafs here. Producers such as Davidoff, Fuentes, Oliva, etc. use our “natural-shade grown” tobacco to add elegance, consistency and silkiness of their cigars.
We met artisan families who work the land, their artisan cigars 'blown our minds". Since that moment we decided to partner with them and bring to our market their amazing cigars produced and rolled fully by Ecuadorian hands.
Our focus is on share the amazing qualities of the Ecuadorian Tobacco leafs, recognized by the most acclaimed reviewers in the industry of cigars.
Ecuadorian Cigar Facts: While tobacco is grown in many parts of the world, Ecuador, with its unique soil and climate conditions, is considered to be the place that produces the best cigars in the world.
We are currently developing our brands and expect to launch our first line of cigars in 2015.
Capa Fina Churchill Cigar Review
by Bryan Glynn, Cigar Obsession
This 7.5×50 stick features a dark tan firm wrapper with a slight tooth like a fine sand paper, light pack, minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap and pungent peppery wood aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful thick rich smoke output showing medium-full bodies flavors of a sweet grassy vegetable-like note, with a fairly short clean smooth oily finish. The first third lightens the smoke a bit settling to a mild-medium body of a very smooth and slick creamy sweet wood both on the draw and finish, which is getting longer. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes, body is down to mild with thin smoke output while flavors remain about the same, just dropping the sweetness. Construction is very good, with a razor sharp burn line, ash that holds just over an inch at a time and great draw. 50 minutes in by the band point flavors pick back up to a medium body adding a good bit of cream to the draw and finish. Ending at 1:10 where it got too hot for my taste, the last bit went unchanged. Thank you to Red Puro Imports for sending this in for review!
