In 2020, the country of Honduras was affected by two major storms, Tropical Storm Eta and Hurricane Iota, while in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than four million people were affected, and estimates are 2.5 million of those people are in need.

For this reason Oscar Valladares Tobacco, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, Leaf by Oscar, Nova Cigars, and Cavalier Genève have taken the initiative to release a six-cigar sampler box that they have named CIGARS FOR HOPE. Proceeds from the sales of the sampler will raise funds to help with medicine, clothing, supplies, food to the affected communities, shelters, and hospitals.

Only 2000 of these samplers are available and the cigars (Toro size) included are:

  • Wild Hunter Natural
  • 2012 by Oscar Corojo
  • Leaf by Oscar Corojo
  • Nova Platinum Batch
  • Cavalier Genève White Series
  • Rocky Patel Sun Grown
