On my last visit to Nicaragua, we stopped to visit the Mombacho Cigar Factory in Granada. The factory is located in a colonial house, so it really did not look like a factory, it was actually quite neat!
We got a guided tour of the small factory where these premium cigars are manually manufactured at 3 working stations.
The cigars are a blend of three different tobaccos carefully selected by the company’s experts. We were explained that the combination of the very fertile volcanic soil and the Caribbean climate, makes the Nicaraguan tobacco one of the finest in the world.
In the back of the factory they have a lounging area with a pool where you can enjoy a drink, a cigar or a dip. Unfortunately we did not have time to hang out there, but I would have loved to. It was really pretty and calm.
Finally, I am no expert when it comes to cigars but I must say that I enjoyed one on our boat trip to the Granada Islands. It was smooth and mild, I did not have that yucky after taste I usually get when I smoke a cigar. So I must say I quite liked them. Too bad I did not buy a box. 😉 The cigars are now sold in Nicaragua, Canada and Asia or can be also ordered online. You should try them if you like cigars!
Anyone has tried them? What did you think?
