Dutch Masters Cigars Description
Dutch Masters cigars are America's favorite natural wrapped cigar, and have been sold in the U.S. since 1911. They are instantly recognizable for their distinctive packaging featuring Rembrandt's famous painting The Syndics of the Drapers' Guild, as well as for their characteristically smooth, mellow flavor, excellent burn, and pleasing aroma. As machine-rolled cigars go, you're looking at some of the best. Plus, there are plenty of flavors to choose from.Masters of Their Domain
Dutch Masters cigars are just about as American as apple pie and baseball. Not only are they made in Ft. Lauderdale,Florida by Altadis U.S.A., they've been sold in the United States since 1911. At that time, they were produced by the G.H. Johnson Cigar Company until 1921, when they merged with the Consolidated Cigar Corporation, until it was acquired by Altadis U.S.A. in 1999.
Easily recognized by Rembrandt's 17th century painting, The Syndics of the Drapers' Guild (also referred to as The Staalmeesters), Dutch Masters have become one of the most profitable and popular machine-rolled cigar brands in America. Today, Dutch Masters cigars are presented in Cigarillos, Coronas, and Palmas sold in both natural and a variety of popular flavors. For the traditional cigar smoker, Dutch Masters are also available in two classic, non-flavored sizes, a 5 ½ x 36 Panatela and a 5 ⅝ x 40 President.
Renown for their mildness, ultra-smooth taste, and effortless draw, one of the finer aspects of Dutch Masters cigars are their genuine African Cameroon wrapper leaves (also among the most expensive wrappers sold today).
During the 1950's, when you could advertise tobacco on TV, Dutch Masters sponsored the late Ernie Kovacs's television show. Kovacs, one of the most popular and inventive comedians at the time, was also a hardcore cigar smoker. Ironically, Kovacs never smoked Dutch Masters, opting instead for his beloved Cuban cigars when he was off-screen. Yet, despite his personal cigar preference, he sold a lot of Dutch Masters cigars.
Sometimes a brand name becomes popular for reasons that can make it notorious. Case in point: During the early 1990's, when hip-hop was becoming the new staple in pop music, Dutch Masters cigars were often referred to by rappers as "dutches." The reason being, Dutch Masters, as well as other popular machine-made cigars, were unraveled, then re-rolled with marijuana into "blunts." Moreover, cigarillos used for blunts were called "mini-dutches."
Fortunately, most cigar smokers buy Dutch Masters cigars for legitimate reasons, which continue to reign supreme among machine-made cigars for their high quality, variety of flavors, and value. If you're looking for a true classic American cigar, give 'em a try by ordering a box or a single today!
