Surrounded by tree-covered mountains and a
crystal-clear river, Olancho, San Agustín, is nestled
in one of the most fertile valleys of Honduras.
The untouched land encompassing this tobacco
plantation boasts a rich soil nurtured by the sun
and fed by pure, natural springs that together give
this sun-grown wrapper its unique flavor and full-bodied
The 2008 crop that wraps the OSA Sol bears the distinctions of ideal climatic conditions— optimal rainfall and sunshine that led to the leaf ’s essential natural oils which, when processed with General Cigar’s proprietary methods, contribute to the cigar’s robust, earthy flavor.
Rick Rodriguez, spearhead of CAO’s new-product development, collaborated with in-house cigar experts in the blending of the OSA Sol, a three-cigar assortment celebrating this proprietary Honduran tobacco and marking the first new collection created for CAO under the auspices of General Cigar.
OSA Sol is medium-bodied with a consistently intriguing flavor and immaculate construction. To achieve its uniquely balanced taste, Rodriguez and his team punctuated the flavorful OSA wrapper with a hearty Connecticut broadleaf binder and a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers. The result is a provocative taste that celebrates the nuances of the tobaccos of Olancho, San Agustín. Accessibly priced, the OSA Sol is protected in a unique box with an eye-catching color scheme that pays homage to the whitewashed curing barns on the very farm where the tobaccos were cured. Much like the cigars within, the handsome box is sure to be treasured by discriminating premium-cigar smokers.
