Boxes of Cuban Fonsecas feature both New York's Statue of Liberty and Havana's Morro Castle, indicating that the brand was born at a time when relations between these two great cities were easier than they are today.
Since 1965, the brand has also been made in the Dominican Republic, originally using Cameroon wrappers, but now preferring light Connecticut shade. Mexican binders combine with Dominican fillers in very well-made cigars for a truly mild smoke.
The small range of Cuban Fonsecas come uniquely encased in white tissue. They are Barcelona's favorite cigar, where prodigious quantities are consumed by people who know their smokes. The flavor is light to medium with a slight saltiness.
