Don Tomas cigars are a humidor staple, and great everyday smokes; as one of the most well-known Honduran cigars, you'll find them well-laden with flavor, and true in taste to their heritage. Some even call them the “pride of Honduras.”
Originating in Danli at the HATSA (Honduran-American Tobacco S.A.) factory in the Villazon days, Don Tomas cigars came to prominence under the watchful eye of cigar master and factory manager Estelo Padron. He was known to say, "there is only one way to make our cigars - the nineteenth century way." And so it is with Don Tomás cigars, having been hand crafted in the old-world tradition since the 1970's.
What sets them apart from their contemporaries is Don Tomas' value: surprisingly budget-friendly for cigars of this quality, they've been named a “best buy” by major cigar press outlets and consistently earn high ratings in spite of such an accessible price point.
These traits are evident with Don Tomas Clasico...medium bodied all the way, the Clasico brings a well-balanced mixture of Dominican and Honduran long fillers that burn nice and evenly. Like it's name says, a true Honduran classic that hits with creamy smoke and mix of spice. The Don Tomas Maduro version sports a Connecticut Maduro binder under broadleaf that smokes rich, yet with that natural sweetness that comes with extra fermentation.
Don Tomas Sun Grown cigars are Honduran puros, made with tobacco grown exclusively in the organic soil of the Jamastran Valley. The darker wrapper helps to deliver a wider array of fuller flavors, and doing so at an incredibly inexpensive price; these make an excellent everyday burner for more experienced palates.
Even the Don Tomas SE cigars are affordable...the Special Edition Connecticut sports a U.S.-grown Connecticut shade wrapper over a 3 nation blend, while the Don Tomas Special Edition Corojo swaps wrappers for a Honduran Talanga Corojo and Mexican San Andres binder for more robust flavors. Each is handcrafted in Estelo Pardon's old world vision, yet remain stunningly affordable.
Don Tomas cigars have been a staple for nearly 40 years, enjoyed by amateur and experienced cigar smoking enthusiasts alike...and though the selections have become more diverse, the brand has delivered it's Honduran cigar heritage for a price that will surprise.
