The Cigars Of The Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is possibly one of the most beautiful countries in the world, famed for it's beaches and it's beautiful scenery which makes it a popular holiday destination. The Dominican is also famed for it's cigars, so much so, that it is now the world's biggest exporter of the beautiful little works of art. This actually surprised me as I thought that Nicaragua would be top dog, but alas it was the Dominican and by a healthy margin too - Cuba in comparison was a distant third!

Situated in the Caribbean, The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern half of the Island of Hispaniola which it shares with Haiti. Inhabited originally by the Taino people before the Europeans arrived in the late 1400's when Christopher Columbus arrived. Like many countries in the Caribbean and Central America, the Dominican grew tobacco, which the Spanish were quick to capitalise upon exporting huge quantities to Europe for processing into cigars.

Although cigars have been made in the Dominican Republic for a number decades, it is only in the last 25 to 30 years that things have really started to take off and especially so in the last decade. The quality of the Dominican product is second to none and like most other countries, it produces cigars in a range of different styles and flavour profiles. Don't just take my word for it though, check out the range below!

The Freud Agape LE is a tribute to the profound love for tobacco and the artistry of cigar making. Named after the Greek term “Agape,” symbolizing selfless love, it represents the pinnacle of devotion to craftsmanship.

La Galera Cigars Imperial Jade African Cameroon Robusto - Single

Dominican Republic
RING GAUGE
Medium - Full

This is a very welcome new addition to the La Galera portfolio and one that is unique amongst its cigars because of the Cameroon wrapper. The build of these cigars is fantastic which makes it even more enjoyable allowing you to concentrate on those gorgeous peppery, spicy flavours. These are quite rounded and silky with a note of minerality lifting the flavours somewhat before some sweetness starts to appear towards the end. These are undoubtedly one of my favourite Galeras.

STG Silencio Black Supremo Toro - Single

Dominican Republic
RING GAUGE
Full

From seed to final cigar everything about Silencio is the search for perfection! It starts with meticulously selected seeds which are raised in climate-controlled greenhouses with the plants being raised in nutrient rich soils. Once harvested the leaves that hang in the curing barns are closely monitored so that they express moisture and release their natural sugars at the precise rate. Once the maturation period is over, only the best rollers get to work on these wonderful leaves.

The end result is a cigar that that is not only full bodied and full of flavour, but one that is rolled to perfection - every step in the process has been carefully monitored to ensure that every cigar is perfect. The Maduro wrapper is dark, oily and silky to the touch - this is draped around the extra-aged Domincan Ligero leaf - the end result is full-bodied, creamy and very smooth. Definitely one to consider for that special occasion!

The star performer at our recent 'non-cigar event' back in April. This awesome cigar really did pack in some amazingly rich, earthy, chocolatey flavours showing superb balance. This is quite full-bodied but is also elegant too. This will satisfy even the hardest to please cigar smoker, guaranteed!

''We savoured the Rocky Patel Aged Limited and Rare Robusta and La Galera Anemoi Notus with a Pinot Noir from the Pays D'Oc and agree they are a very satisfying combo. I also like to enjoy a Ghirardelli dark chocolate sea salt caramel square which enhances my experience even more - however, this may just be a woman's thing!!!''

STG Silencio Red Dot Robusto - Single

49
Dominican Republic
RING GAUGE
Medium

After quite a long wait we have finally managed to source some of the highly acclaimed Red Dot robustos. These medium-bodied cigars are an absolute joy to smoke, being richly flavoured, yet creamy and almost velvety in texture. The blend is an intriguing mix of tobaccos wrapped in a gorgeous Cameroon wrapper leaf. The filler tobaccos are from the Dominican Republic (where the cigar is made) and uses Piloto Cubano leaf, which is held together beautifully by the Jember binder from Indonesia.

In the States this is sold under a different name, a very famous Cuban name, and like that particular brand, is quite highly sought after. The sister cigar to this, the Silencio Black Supremo Toro, was in my own personal top 3 cigars for 2023!
