At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, a company named Supreme Tobacco made its debut. What is unique about this company is they produce cigars in Haiti, and they brought a Haitian tobacco cigar known as Bohekio to the show.
Many know the Dominican Republic is one of the largest cigar producers in the world. Many do not know that the Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with its western neighbor Haiti, which is not known as a tobacco-producing country. The Bohekio is a line that uses Haitian-grown tobacco for the binder and filler. The wrapper used is a Sun Grown Habano from the Dominican Republic. Bohekio is available in four sizes – each packaged in 20-count boxes. Production is handled at the Supreme Tobacco S.A. facility in Haiti.
The Bohekio is named for a Taino Native American ruler.
