The Oldest Cuban Brands
Have you ever wondered what kind of Cuban cigar brand was the first to be released and thus start the era of elite Cuban Cigars? These items are always sough-after and highly appreciated by cigar aficionados from all over the world, so knowing a little of their history would only add to your experience. We've chosen three brands which you are surely familiar with, and are glad to carry you back to the day when these cigar legends were "born".
The story of this brand takes its roots from the beginning of 20th century, namely 1935. A very energetic, enterprising and rich person Alonso Menéndez has bought the Particulares factory that was manufacturing such brands as Particulares and Byron cigars. Not long after the purchase, Menendez started producing new cigars - the Montecristo brand named after the legendary and very popular Alexandre Dumas' novel "The Count of Monte Cristo".
Cuban Cigars - Bolivar
One of the most underestimated cigars, this stogie is the synonym of "strength", "power" and "authority" among havanas. The stick was named after the legendary figure of the 19th century, Simon Bolivar, who was one of the most famous revolutionaries and politics from Latin America.
A cigar with a beautiful name and of Cuban origin - the Trinidad - has been produced since 1969 and given as a gift to the diplomats. However, the public at large has got to know it at the end of the 20th century, namely in 1998.
A very long time ago, almost a century back, in 1919, a boy was born. It happened in Alquizar in La Habana Province of Cuba. The boy's father, Maruto, decided to name his son Alejandro. This is the first part of Alejandro Robaina's story - one of the most renowned tobacco growers in Cuba.
