Casa 1910 is a premium Mexican cigar brand that made its cigar industry debut in 2021. Based in Veracruz, the company offers three artisan editions all linked to the Mexican Revolution. As the company puts it: “We are a premium cigar and lifestyle brand that captures the national pride and spirit of the Mexican Revolution.” Yet more than wanting to draw your attention to Mexican history and culture, Casa 1910 wants to change the way you think about Mexican cigars. So, let’s get this revolution started!
The Casa 1910 Revolutionary Edition is a two vitola line that commemorates the first battle of the Mexican Revolution, an event that defined Mexico’s character. That’s why the Revolutionary blend is Mexican through-and-through. Medium to full in strength, the binder and filler are composed of 5-year-aged San Andrés Negro seamlessly rolled in a Mexican-grown Sumatra-seed wrapper with three to five years of age on it. After rolling the cigars are aged an additional six to eight months to boost smoothness and flavor. The range of flavors found between the Cuchillo Parado and the Tierra Blanca includes hay, wood, spice, leather, tea, and dark toasty flavors.
In the movies, the Cavalry always arrives at the last minute to save the day. So, the Casa 1910 Cavalry edition is a nod to three famous horses (and their riders) of the Mexican Revolution: Lucero and Jilguero (Pancho Villa) and As de Oro (Emiliano Zapata). And since Mexican horses are mixed breeds, the three vitolas in the Calvary selection are blended with tobaccos of different breeds. This medium-full strength blend boasts a well-balanced mix of top-grade Mexican and Nicaraguan tobaccos including Mexican San Andrés Negro, plus Nicaraguan Jalapa, Ometepe, and Estelí topped with an Ecuador Habano wrapper. Between the three sizes you’ll encounter any number of flavors like coffee bean, cedar, spice, leather, cocoa, earth, and molasses.
A number of historians believe that victory would have been impossible without the effort and sacrifice of the soldaderas, the brave women soldiers of the Mexican Revolution. And so the Casa 1910 Soldaderas selection is dedicated to them. Because the three women honored in this line were such unique individuals, each vitola is also unique in blend and shape. Crafted with a Mexican/Dominican-forward blend, the wrappers include Connecticut Broadleaf (“Sampetrina”) and Habano (“La Coronela” and “Teniente Angela”). The binders come from Brazil, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, while the fillers are Mexican and Dominican except “Teniente Angela,” which has a Dominican and Nicaraguan. Flavors include damp earth, oak, almonds, baking spices, leather, pepper, chocolate and more.
