We discussed the Mayan tradition, which inspired Oscar Valladares’ creativity in his cigars’ packaging, but not only. We also talked about misconceptions in cigar reviews, what’s good and less good in the cigar industry, and more…
Oscar Valladares started working with Rocky Patel in 2011. His passion for cigars grew and, in 2012, he started his own production in Danli (south of Honduras, near Nicaragua). His most popular creation was that of cigars wrapped in an unfermented tobacco leaf instead of cellophane. This is the result of a deep connection and admiration for the Mayan history. Today Oscar grows tobacco in both Danli and Copan (Ruinas – north of Honduras, near Guatemala), which are obviously very different terroirs.
Oscar is extremely creative, has a high respect for nature, tradition and sustainability.
