First introduced in 1972, La Finca cigars have established themselves as one of our oldest and most trusted premium Nicaraguan brands. The original La Finca blend that stood alone for many decades features a dark reddish hue Ecuadorian wrapper embracing the finest aged Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobaccos. The cigars rich nutty, spicy, and earthy flavors make it a medium to full bodied smoke by which many other Nicaraguan cigars are judged. Nothing has changed throughout the years, except for the fact that these timeless classics have gone from boxes to no-frills bundles to keep the prices even more affordable.
In the early 2000’s La Finca cigar teamed up with its distant European cousin, La Finca Europa. This original Frank Llaneza blend, the famed master blender behind such legendary Cuban heritage brands as Hoyo de Monterrey, Punch, and El Rey del Mundo, boasts a silky, golden brown Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, a Sumatra binder, and aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. Although mellower than the original, the Europa still has plenty of character and tons of rich medium bodied flavors that includes cocoa, roasted nuts, cedar, sweet spice, and caramel. Tierra Brava cigars, the latest La Finca installment, brings the very first Nicaraguan puro blend to the lineup. Laced with the finest aged Cuban-seed tobaccos these medium bodied gems produce woodsy notes of oak and cedar, beautifully balanced with hints of spice, cocoa, and cinnamon.
On a side note: The original La Finca cigars hold the distinction of being one of the least expensive cigars to receive excellent ratings in “Smoke” and “Cigar Aficionado”, with the Corona size receiving an unheard of 92 rating from CA!
