Puro Sabor Cigar Festival Returns this January

Early next year, cigar lovers from all over the world will head to Nicaragua to take part in Puro Sabor, the country’s largest celebration of tobacco and cigars. Now in its seventh year, the week-long cigar festival starts in the lakeside city of Granada before heading north towards Estelí, the cigar making capital of the country.  

The festival is a mix of entertaining and educational segments. Arriving in Granada, festival attendees can explore the city, admire the colonial-era architecture and visit the shores of Lake Nicaragua. After two days of sightseeing, cultural activities and relaxation, festival-goers travel to Estelí to embark on an immersive tour of cigar factories and tobacco plantations from some of the biggest names in the business, including A.J. Fernandez, Padrón, Drew Estate, Joya de Nicaragua, My Father Cigars, Plasencia Cigars, General Cigar, Oliva and Rocky Patel.

Interspersed throughout the festival are lively gala dinners, unique souvenirs and a multitude of cigars to smoke. The event is hosted by the Nicaraguan Chamber of Tobacco, an organization that aims to promote the image of Nicaraguan tobacco growers and cigarmakers.

“The festival has become a way of presenting our wealth of culture, history and traditions,” said Anielka Ortez, president of the Nicaraguan chamber of tobacco. “We want our friends and clients to enjoy and learn more about our country and to let themselves be seduced by Nicaragua’s natural charms.”

The seventh Puro Sabor cigar festival runs January 22 to 27, 2018. For tickets and more information, visit www.nicaraguancigarfestival.com
