Toraño Celebrates 90 Years

Gregory Mottola
Posted: May 15, 2006
In 1916, Don Santiago Toraño emigrated from Spain to grow tobacco in Cuba's Pinar del Río region. The family's holdings grew to 17 tobacco farms throughout Cuba before the Toraños fled the island in 1960 after Castro seized their lands. Now, the Toraños will release the Noventa (Spanish for 90) Series. The Nicaraguan puros have a wrapper grown in Pueblo Nuevo, near Estelí, and will come in three sizes: robusto, toro and torpedo.

See the full tasting in an upcoming Cigar Insider.

For more on how Cuba's cigarmakers left their island and went on to build the non-Cuban cigar industry, read The Exodus.
