Most cigar shops like to offer something to their local customers, something that is designed with them in mind, a cigar that is made for the local market. Of course, they can’t afford to manufacture their own cigars, for the most part; that would require a lot of know-how, a lot of experience, and a lot of staff that the average small cigar shop just can’t afford to pay (as well as, depending on your state, requiring you to basically register as a tobacco manufacturer, an expensive process on its own).
What they do is they work with a great cigar manufacturer elsewhere, and then they bring the cigars in to the shop, and sell them to the good people who stop in. In the case of El Cigar, they have partnered with the fine folks work out of Little Havana’s El Titan de Bronze, in a move that makes for a great headline.
El Titan de Bronze is a great cigar company, and the cigar that they have made is one that you will be happy to have spent some money on. El Cigar's Family Series S.G. Corojo Toro is a Nica Puro, one that has been made entirely from Nicaraguan tobacco. It begins with a Corojo wrapper, and then it moves on to tobacco from the premium growing regions of Nicaragua. This leaves you with a medium-bodied cigar, one that has flavors of cinnamon, leather, and the characteristic spice that you find in a lot of Nicaraguan cigars. A great investment, and one that you will be quite happy with. El Cigar Shop is the only place to find this amazing blend, either in house or online.
