What is the history of cigars?

Cigar History

When the New World was discovered by Columbus, so was tobacco. It was called Cohiba by the natives in Cuba. Premium Cigars and cigar smoking evolved quickly. The popularity of tobacco and cigar smoking soon raced through America and Europe.

As early as the 16th century, Cuban cigars became leaders in the world of the cigar when peasants began growing the crop. The popularity of the cigar has spread over the centuries, and in the early 1900's nearly 80% of all men smoked cigars in the United States.
