The Fuego family history with tobacco traces back to when the family started growing leaf in Cuba in 1857. They left the country in 1995 to make their home in Central America. After working in Central America until 2006, it was time for Jesus Fuego to start making his own cigars, and thus the J. Fuego brand was launched.
The blend is comprised of all Cuban-seed tobaccos wrapped inside a Costa Rican binder and then placed inside a Brazilian Corojo wrapper. The result is a spicy blend that remains refined and balanced throughout, with notes of cedar, earth, and cream.
Brazil. Home to beautiful women, tiny bathing suits, and the world's best tobacco. Proof is in the ligero pudding; San Lotano Habano, Maxx Brazilian, and my pick for this issue's sampler: J. Fuego Origen. Check out that Brazilian Habano wrapper. Don't you just want to eat it? Go ahead, just don't eat too many or you won't fit into that speedo.
