Nicaraguan Cigars in Fort Washington

Nicaraguan cigars are considered by many to be the closest in terms of strength and taste to classic Habanos. Nicaraguan cigars are becoming more popular as people feel they are the closest competitors to Cubans.

The "Big Three" tobacco producers in Central America include the Dominican Republic (DR), Honduras (HN), and Nicaragua. Nicaragua has been a major tobacco producer in the United States for many years.

Nicaragua is now the second largest supplier of premium cigars, surpassing Honduras. Nicaragua exports tobacco leaves and cigars worth approximately $200 million a year.

Nicaraguan tobacco is extremely popular due to its rich volcanic soil, which is comparable with Cuba's. Nicaragua, the largest country in Central America is known for its volcanoes, lakes and volcanic soil.

Nicaragua's soil texture and chemical composition produce a cigar that has a mild, earthy taste. The leaf is mainly sourced from Esteli, Jalapa and Condega. The area around Esteli, in the northern highlands, has a temperate and fertile climate that's perfect for tobacco growing.

Esteli was a haven for Cuban tobacco farmers after the Cuban Revolution of 1959. The soil in the Jalapa valley is clay-like and red. The tobacco that is grown in this valley is mild and often used to make Nicaraguan wrapper.

Condega, a quiet village near the Cantagallo Mountains to Esteli's north, is located in a rural area. Condega produces tobacco which is stronger and more medium-bodied than tobacco produced in Esteli.

The inland island, Ometepe (also known as "Two Peaks"), is a relatively new tobacco producer. Its twin volcanoes are situated in the middle Lake Nicaragua, and it produces a sweet, earthy tobacco.
