The cigars are the undisputed stars at The Cigar Room, each one hand rolled including Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas, Trinidad, Bolivar, Hoyo de Monterrey, and Santa Damiana.
This is the flagship brand of Habanos and rapidly achieved mythical status since its creation in 1966 for none other than Fidel Castro himself. Originally it was only seen outside Cuba as gifts for important dignitaries and diplomats. Finally in 1982 it was launched to the world in limited quantities. When Columbus fi rst arrived he saw the native Taino Indians smoking tobacco leaves in bunches that they referred to as "cohibas", hence the name.
The Menendez and Garcia families founded the Montecristo brand in 1935 and since then it has gone on to become the best known and probably most widely appreciated brand. Allegedly it was the torcedores in the factory who chose the name after being read Alexandre Dumas' famous novel "The Count of Monte Cristo".
Don Jaime Partagas created the Partagas brand in 1845 and the factory he then opened at No. 520 Industria Street in the centre of Havana is still making the cigars today. It is now perhaps the most famous factory in the city and is visited by many tourists each year.
HOYO DE MONTERREY
Hoyo de Monterrey cigars were born in 1865, created by Jose Gener, who named the brand after his tobacco plantation of the same name. Hoyos are characteristically smooth, light and very flavourful, with great elegance and complexity.
ROMEO Y JULIETA
Named after William Shakespeare's play, it was born as a brand back in 1875. It came to prominence during the 20th century and was famously smoked by Sir Winston Churchill, whose name is commemorated on a band and is also used to describe the brand's most famous size, the Churchill.
Given by the Cuban government as diplomatic presents, this Trinidadian brand was well known to connoisseurs around the world even before its launch in 1998. It is named after the beautiful 16th century city of La Santisima Trinidad, situated on the south coast of Cuba.
This outstanding brand was introduced in 1901 by the Rocha Cuban Cigar Company. Named after General Bolivar, the Bolivar cigar is often compared to the great General himself – strong, powerful and robust in every way.
These quality cigars are hand made in the Tabacalera de Garcia factory at La Romana on the south eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, where the Carribean sun and warm sea breezes combine to produce excellent conditions for first class tobacco.
Distinguished by their elegant shapes and subtle blends, cigar connoisseurs will appreciate the light, delicate yet rich aroma of this line of cigars.
