Nicaraguan cigars are continuously growing more and more popular within the industry, as the climate and soil allow for consistent and effective growing of tobacco. The industry in Nicaragua is very much like that of its neighbour, Honduras, where it exploded when numerous cigar experts and manufacturers moved to Cuba, whereby many of them found themselves in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua was originally famous for its cigarette tobacco, before the rise of the cigar industry took place. The soil and climate of that in this country, allows for tobacco suitable for both cigarettes and cigars to be grown at a mass amount, making tobacco one of their biggest exports. Most of the Nicaraguan cigars are produced in the city of Esteli, which sits on the north west of the country, where the soil is most suited to growing tobacco- rich black colour and extremely fertile.
The tobacco produced in Nicaragua is typically very dark and full bodied and depending on the brand, come in a wide range of different blends and quality of taste. There is no shortage of cigar brands from Nicaragua, meaning you can try the many different types of top quality cigars, to find ones to suit your taste. Many smokers of Nicaraguan cigars believe that the taste of the cigars closely resemble those made in Cuba. Nicaragua exports around twenty million cigars worldwide every year.
The country saw the uprising of the tobacco and cigar industry take place in Cuba, just an hour or two over the Caribbean Sea. This led to Nicaragua to get an idea to become major growers and exporters of tobacco themselves, to help develop the country economically. There are a wide range of Nicaraguan cigars available including; Coa Gold Maduro, Charatan, Churchill and Olivia Serie.
