Don Tomas Nicaragua_Gigante_left_closed

Don Tomas has been one of the quieter lines in the General Cigar portfolio, but last year a new blend called the Don Tomas Nicaragua was released to Europe. At this year’s IPCPR Trade Show, the Don Tomas Nicaragua was showcased to the U.S. market.

Although not a Nicaragua puro, the Don Tomas Nicaragua is a Nicaraguan centric blend. It consists of a shade-grown Jalapa wrapper, a Brazilian binder, and a filler blend of Nicaragua tobaccos from a grower who has plantations in Jalapa, Contega, Pueblo, and Esteli. In addition, the filler contains a small amount of Dominican tobacco.  The cigar itself is produced at the STG Esteli factory in Nicaragua.
