Cuba is the most recognized cigar producer in the World. This small Caribbean island country has been a leader in cigars for nearly five hundred years. When you think of cigars, you think of Cuban Cigars.
There are nearly 40 brands and around 500 varieties of cigars produced in this country. The most popular of which is Cohiba. Since 1963 Cuban grown tobacco is not used in cigars sold in the United States. They are illegal as a result of an embargo against that country.
If the tobacco seed from Cuba is grown in other Countries, the cigars are perfectly legal in the United States. Sometimes these cigars even taste and burn better than those from Cuba. That is due to the lack of fertilizers and raw materials in Cuba.
