In searching for the best components to make our Maduro line of cigars, our founder and master blender chose to employ what many consider to be the finest wrapper in existence grown in the San Andres valley of Mexico.

People in this business have said that a cigar’s wrapper accounts for up to 90% of it’s flavor. Others have argued against that theory. We have no dog in that fight. Sticking to our guns, flavor over strength prevails. Which is why our concentration lies in the entire product.
Hence, these cigars are blended with the following tobaccos:
Mexican San Andres Wrapper with a solid Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
