    • San Andrés is a widely accepted term for tobaccos that have their origins in the San Andrés valley of Mexico in the Veracruz countryside. It is has been documented that the idea of rolling tobacco into classic cigar shapes and smoking it started here. There are relics that depict the Mayans of the region smoking a rolled leaf. Thus, it is widely believed Mexicans have been rolling cigars since the early 19th century. So, in a sense, one could assume that the seed of this type of tobacco is ancient in origin. The region's fertile soil is volcanic which helps produce the distinctive taste inherent in the tobacco. The Veracruz state is predominantly where most of the leaf is grown. It has prevailing winds from the Gulf of Mexico, and a humid but mild climate that nurtures the leaf and helps to procure the combination of flavors that are associated with the San Andres wrapper.
    • The valley mainly grows three types of leaf. One is a smooth, velvety Sumatra that was imported to the area by the Dutch. The second is a Habana seed variety comprised of Criollo and Corojo hybrids, and the third type is the one we are featuring in our latest presentation: a dark, spicy San Andrés Negro. This, incidentally, is the variety cultivated from the oldest of the regions' seeds.   Although other San Andrés tobacco is used in cigars around the world, the primary leaf that we associate today with the famed San Andrés wrapper is the Negro (Maduro). It is highly recognizable due to its' dark brown color and a somewhat rugged texture.
    • So, please, kick back with a glass of your favorite libation and enjoy this medium bodied smoke that features lush, chocolate overtones coupled with a nice, pungent peppery spice. It's a big ring gauged beauty with an immensely satisfying blend at an affordable price brought to you by El Cigar Shop!
    • Awesome Sauce!
