La Hoja Cigar Co. 1962 Cigars – The Rebirth of a Cuban-Style Classic

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

La Hoja Cigar Co. 1962 is a beautifully rolled line of premium handmade cigars made in small-batch fashion. This s a contemporary rebirth of an old Cuban brand produced by a three-generation tobacco growing family that escaped Castro’s persecution to become one of the best-selling boutique cigars on the market today.  Founded by brothers Willie Flores and Carlos Gomez, the brand was first introduced in 1990 when the two men set up shop in Hoboken, New Jersey. Flor de Florez cigars became so popular with the locals that word of mouth had New Jersey smokers gravitating to their shop in droves. In 1992, when Cigar Aficionado came out, these cigars acquired national fame and remained a hot commodity until 1998 when a lawsuit over naming rights brought the brand to a sudden halt, with production ceasing to exist

This lawsuit was finally settled in 2011, and fast forwarding to 2018, the La Hoja Cigar Co.1962 cigars are bigger and better than ever with three popular lines currently available in the company portfolio: La Hoja Edición Clásica 1962, La Hoja Edición Maduro 1962 and La Hoja Reserva Limitada.

All medium to full body in strength, the three-blend line starts with the Reserva Limitada 1962 that boasts a refined recipe of six- years aged Dominican and Nicaraguan binders and fillers covered with an oily, medium brown colored Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. By using vintage tobaccos, this complex blend of coffee, earth, cinnamon, and nuts, are delivered with a buttery smoothness on the palate.

To appeal to the smoker’s dark side, La Hoja’s sophomore release, Edicion Maduro 1962 presents aged Dominican Piloto Cubano, and Nicaraguan long-fillers rolled inside a tantalizing licorice black San Andres wrapper from Mexico. Savory flavors of nuts, spice, dark chocolate, maple, and sweet caramel make this offering a real Maduro lover’s dream!

The latest installment to the highly rated La Hoja portfolio is the Edicion Clasica 1962.  This luxury – selection of two big ring vitolas are rolled in a classic box-pressed format with a core of aged Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos capped with an oily Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. These beauties truly capture the taste of the original Cuban namesake with a zesty peppery base that harmoniously intermingles with more subtle notes of coffee, sweet spices, wood, and cedar.

Revamped, revitalized, and still growing, La Hoja Cigar Co. 1962 promises more exciting premium blends in the future, and if these three selections are any indication of what lies ahead, this company will be a force to be reckoned with for generations to come!

Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, the late Prime Minister Winston Churchill took charge of a nation on the verge of destruction by the Nazi war machine and through sheer determination, led England through its darkest time in history to emerge victorious. He did this while smoking up to 10 cigars a day and enjoying his favorite libations, namely whiskey and brandy.

Davidoff, one of the most respected names in the cigar industry, in conjunction with the Churchill family, pays tribute to this legendary man with the gorgeous line of Davidoff Winston Churchill premium handmade cigars.  Although a fairly new release, this line of luxury smokes is already considered one of the finest cigars on the market.

The Davidoff team designed these top-notch vitolas to appeal to many styles of smokers. The four original sizes have a blend of 5 unique, hand selected Dominican Cuban-seed filler tobaccos, co-mingled with Nicaraguan leaf, plus a Negro San Andres binder, carefully rolled inside of a beautiful shiny and oily Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper. two other sizes, the Belicoso, (sold in tins of 4) and the Petit Panetela, (sold in tins of 5) feature a beautiful Ecuador Habano wrapper, a Pelo De Oro Visus Peruvian binder, and a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos.

Davidoff Winston Churchill Cigars boast core flavors of almonds, wood, sweet cream, and caramel, with the different wrapper variations adding a host of mouthwatering nuances that include peppery spice, chocolate, and fruit.
