The new Tabacalera de García facilities will be dedicated exclusively to handmade cigars manufacture, with 2,100 employees and a capacity of production that exceeds 40 million sticks per year.
Driving past the premises of Tabacalera de García in La Romana, one already senses the grandiose dimensions of the world’s largest cigar factory. An endless sea of mopeds glitters in the Dominican midday sun. Thousands of specialists daily produce a huge amount of cigars. We have the opportunity to meet the man who is responsible for ensuring that the cogwheels of the mega-operation run smoothly and never stop: factory director, Javier Elmudesi.
As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, JR Cigar is paying homage to the most iconic cigar brand in the industry with the release of the Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th offered in the torpedo vitola.
Two special blends were created for VegaFina in the renowned Tabacalera de García.
VegaFina updates their Nicaragua line with a new tin-packaging option for Shorts, a 4 3/8 x 42 (111 x 16,7 mm) vitola with an average smoking time of 20 minutes.
The Expert Buncher Manuel Mota gives us inside view of his everyday life.
VegaFina is set to release a new limited production cigar: Robusto Extra PigTail Añejado 7 Años, a 6 x 50 (152 x 19,8 mm) sized cigar, features tobacco leaves aged up to seven years.
The new edition Stalk Cut gets its name from a tobacco-harvesting method in which the entire stalk is cut and hung to dry.
VegaFina’s classic Perla vitola will soon be available in a “fresh pack”. The Ecobag will make it easier to to conserve the cigars in optimal conditions thanks to its hermetic seal, which keeps the tobacco fresh.
