Tobacco Overview

The Dominican Republic is a country devoted to the cultivation of tobacco and has developed an agro-industrial process of the leaves that results in the production of large quantities of cigars which are exported to various parts of the world.

How quality is determined

The main qualities of a good cigar are: combustibility, texture, flavor, elasticity, aroma, color, and balance in the composition of nicotine and oils. Dominican cigars show all of these features.

TOBACCO FARMING

Tobacco is a short cycle crop (between 90 and 105 days), intensive and extremely sensitive to the season in which it is planted, grown and harvested. Tobacco can adapt to a wide variety of soils. However, the most appropriate for its cultivation are those sandy and clay loam.
