Since 1810, when the Salazar family settled in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba, they have been growing some of the world’s finest tobacco, and handcrafting fine premium Cuban cigars. At 12 noon every day, the 4 Salazar brothers would meet in the porch of elder brother Mario’s house in the farm. Mario would open his burlap bag which contained the finest tobacco leaves of the farm’s harvest. The cured leaves were perfect in looks and taste, and were the envy of the other tobacco farmers in Cuba’s prime tobacco growing region. The burlap bag would be passed around and each brother would roll their own Cuban cigars. They would each roll enough for the day’s smoke. Each would have a different preferred cigar size but the blend would always be the same for all four brothers.
Mario’s sons, J.L. Salazar and his brothers, have carried on that tradition and special blend of tobacco leaves in these exquisite boutique premium cigars. The J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Cabinet Selection are each totally handmade by master Cuban cigar rollers. They use the secret Salazar Brothers’ blend, which consists of only the best tasting and finest looking Cuban Seed tobacco leaves. The mellow and rich taste is unmatched. After trying these, you too will know why J.L. Salazar and his brothers are so proud of their family’s traditions.
