It takes a great cigar master to spot the potential of a new tobacco, and an even greater one to turn it into an outstanding cigar. But that's exactly what happened with Estelo Padrón when he discovered an unusually dark Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper curing in his barn. One look at its deep color inspired him to create this singularly rich, robust Hoyo de Monterrey cigar that's as deeply satisfying as it is authentically Honduran.
A line extension from Hoyo de Monterrey, this extra-rich cigar called Dark Sumatra is named after its wrapper tobaccos, which are hand-selected from the very darkest and richest Ecuadorian sun-grown, Sumatra seed leaves. These choice, extra-dark Sumatra leaves are then aged in "tercios," wood-textured bales made of thick, dried palm leaves. This special selection and aging process guarantees that Dark Sumatra is one of the best-tasting cigars ever to come out of Honduras. Dark Sumatra also has a rich textured Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a robust blend of premium Honduran and Dominican filler tobaccos that all contribute to the extraordinary taste.
