90 Miles cigars are “a tribute to the United States,” says Yadi Gonzalez, president of Flor de Gonzalez Cigars. Introduced in 2010, 90 Miles is made in FDG's Nicaraguan factory; depending on the blend, fillers and binders sourced from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Mexico are incorporated into each smoke.
Flor de Gonzalez, which makes 90 Miles cigars, was established in 1993 by Arnaldo Gonzalez. Like many Cuban growers, Arnaldo was trained in tobacco by his father and grandfather in their home in Santa Clara, Cuba. He also felt the Cuban regime’s oppression – and left the island in 1980 to find freedom in America, and to fulfill his dream of owning a cigar factory. What began as Gonzalez’ Hialeah, Florida storefront factory has grown into a true boutique cigar brand that also makes cigars with the finest tobaccos in Nicaragua; their smokes are recognized for the exceptional quality of their wrapper leaf.
But it’s 90 Miles cigars that are something truly special from FdG…as it was an obviously life-changing event, Arnaldo’s escape to America is commemorated with 90 Miles, the distance from Key West to Cuba. You’ll even see the famous Key West buoy on the label.
The original 90 Miles cigar is Gonzalez’s highly-rated, all-Nicaraguan blend that’s been rolled in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper for a medium-bodied smoke, and delivers that typical Nicaraguan pepper and earthiness. The Reserva Selecta edition adds Dominican tobaccos to the mix, and are well-aged for balance and flavor, making for a well-rounded yet still medium cigar. Buy 90 Miles 1980 cigars if you’re going for full body, as Flor de Gonzalez has rolled Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligeros with a broadleaf binder, and topped it off with a San Andres wrapper; super creamy and extra complex are the name of the game here. Add in the 90 Miles Limited Edition lancero and FdG’s Spectral cigars, and you have a top-notch selection of boutiques worth well more than the asking price.
