Since 2018 Maya Selva Cigars has released limited editions that celebrate Chinese New Year. These special blends are a tribute to the hand-crafted cigar tradition. The tobacco in a toro-sized cigar – Año del Tigre 2022 – is handpicked in the valley of Jamastrán in Honduras.
The line’s design combines traditional Chinese patterns with Mayan hieroglyphics. The fauna of the ancient Maya, similar to the Chinese, have proven to play a significant part of their spiritual beliefs, symbolism and iconography. The Mayas believe we are all born with a “Nahaul“ or animal spirit that guides through life.
