Cuba cigar

Beaches of white sand, beautiful American cars, street music, rum and cigars, it sounds very "cliche", but that sums up the island of Cuba. Since 2016 and the end of the reign of Fidel Castro, Cuba is in the midst of change and experiencing a booming tourism. Among the country's attractions is tobacco growing. Controlled by the State, the plantations are especially numerous in the province of Pinar el Rio which has the most famous of the country. The cultivation takes place from November to May and the leaves are then harvested and dried either in the sun or in tent-like wooden sheds covered with palm leaves. The making of cigars is then almost secret. The leaves are fermented and moistened in a bath whose family recipe is secret, usually flavored with rum and different spices and give the cigars a unique flavor. Tobacco is collected on farms to be transported to highly controlled state factories. The cigars are then rolled by hand according to a very precise process. The size, the diameter, the tightening of the cigar and the assembly of different parts of the leaves of tobacco are the guarantee of the quality of the Cuban cigar.
