History of FONSECA

An exquisite cigar, the Fonseca brand is the only Cuban cigar brand that offers all its cigars wrapped in extremely delicate, almost transparent paper. It is thought that this wrapping helps the cigar maintain an optimal humidity level. The wrapper also protects the cigar from becoming damaged. Cigar aficionados love the unique appearance of the Fonseca cigars. The Spaniard Don Francisco Fonseca first registered the Fonseca trademark in 1907. Early in the 20th Century, the Fonseca Cuban cigar was manufactured in several different Havana cigar factories. Fonseca Cuban cigars are now produced in Quivicán, a small town in the province of Havana. The taste associated with a Fonseca cigar is a mild sweetness and aromatic herbal quality. The mild quality of the Fonseca brand means that it offers a chance for beginners to exercise there palate with a Cuban.

I smoke a lot! My Aunt from Warsaw in Poland used to say that she was sure I was a chimney in my former life! She was Buddhist-Polish. A lot of smoking implies that at times you will need a no frills, get the business done, kinda stogie. The Cosacos are the no frills, hyper reliable stick that I am talking about. Quick burning and maintaining a continuous rhythm in the draw, there are no complicated or vexing maintenance procedures to carry out on the cigar. The Corona's linear development translates into its flavors which are traditional, but brilliant! Wood, damp earth and the best tobacco grown on the planet, and no matter how many times you spark one of these gems up they will not fail you. My Aunt from Warsaw would have understood this Buddhist saying " The greatest patience is humility", I think for the skillful men and women involved in the process of making this Fonseca the saying has some resonance too.
