The Mederos Family is proud to present our personal ties to the homeland of Cuba through our traditional tobacco blends! We started growing tobacco in Esteli and Jalapa and shortly after opening our factory with only five pairs of rollers under the name Cubanacan. Cubanacan is the name of the city in Havana Cuba where the famous factory (El Laguito) is located and the Cohiba cigar is rolled. Each blend has its distinctive flavor and strength level that will appease every pallet. Please share with me our family’s tradition and our commitment to excellence.
A Story in Smoke “A Tale of Tradition and Pride”
As long as there have been people, there have been stories. From the stories told in paintings on ancient caves to the family stories shared around the table, stories make up our history and guide our traditions. Cubanacan cigars embraces not only tradition, but strives to tell our story in every cigar.
Our tale begins in the rich tobacco history of Cuba. As the stories of tradition and quality were passed from generation to generation, that tradition was carried forward to the fertile soil of Esteli and Jalapa Nicaragua in 2006 where we started to grow our own tobacco. Shortly after we established our factory in Esteli with just five pairs of rollers set out to create cigars that will share our story with the world.
The name Cubanacan was chosen for its vibrant history and the story behind its meaning. Cubanacan means “where fertile land is abundant” and is derived from tobacco traditions that predate Cuba itself. The story of Cubanacan is not just one of our past, but one that is still being written.
Our goal is not just to be the storyteller, but to have each person that enjoys our cigar help write the next part of our tale. A story of tradition, pride in our quality, and an appreciation for those that carry our story forward.
This cigar has a gorgeous old world transitional wrapper. There’s a dark reddish-brown color with a heavy pre-light nose, woody and some cocoa.
1st quarter: A slight resistance on the draw yielding to some dense clouds of smoke. Detecting sweetness along with a small amount of spice. There’s a silky smooth aroma filling the air with full flavor. 2nd quarter: Earthiness and spices developing through the nose with a clean taste on the palate. A creamy texture with a slight pepperiness on the finish. 3rd quarter: A great balance of flavor and body with a medium character. Rich earthy tones with a little cedar and cocoa notes on the palate and in the air. 4th quarter: Steady undertones on the palate of sweetness with some earthy woody notes that developed later into the profile. Very plush in character overall.
Effortless to smoke. Plenty of earthy notes with a creamy texture. Some spices develop through the nose. Overall rich in flavor and very smooth and consistent smoke with a nice spicy aroma. Extremely well-made.
