Esperanza Cigars: The True Nicaraguan Puro
The Hacienda Esperanza is a reference in tobacco production in Nicaragua, selling its production to major brands in the American market. The owner, Henrico Gadea, is the second generation working in the production of cigars. His father, Isidro Gadea, when he was young, was a cigar roller in a factory in Cuba, and managed to emigrate to Nicaragua, where he found fertile land to grow tobacco following the Cuban tradition.
Esperanza cigars are produced with tobaccos from the Esteli and Ometepe region, and are aged for at least 3 years. The tobacco flavor profile is mild to medium and the tobacco blend of Estelí and Ometepe brings a light sweetness on the palate, which evolves into a more intense flavor in the final third, with secondary aromas of fine spices such as cardamom and dried fruit. The cigar is masterfully crafted by Nicaragua’s finest rollers to ensure perfect burn and flow.
When the Gadea family arrived in Nicaragua, the patriarch, Isidro, already saw the tremendous potential of Estelí’s soil. Its organic characteristics allowed the cultivation of a rich, oily and aromatic tobacco.
Years later, with his sons and grandsons working the land, the Hacienda Esperanza is a reference of success, with the production of cigars that are extremely rich in flavor and smooth on the palate, for an elegant and pleasant smoke from start to finish.
