THE DON COLLINS PIRAMIDE
NOW AVAILABLE IN LIMITED EDITION CEDAR BOXES
The Original Puerto Rican Cigar
Just a note on the best cigar on the planet. This cigar has been rolled since the Taino Indian population invented it some 6,000 years ago. The Native Indians planted, cultivated, cured, traded and smoked their tabako at a major festival centered in Puerto Rico. This activity has been dated by anthropologist as the earliest record of cigar rolling and smoking in history. See our Facebook page for more information!
The style of this cigar is the Piramide. The cigar, larger than a Churchill, has a fully aged and blended tobacco. No chemicals. Let me say that again...No Chemicals. Nothing. The Piramide is laid out for rolling in a staggered leaf pattern so that the business end of the cigar tapers naturally to a point. It is not "pressed" into a Piramide shape like all the other cigars of this style and shape.
There is no comparison to the tobacco flavor. Remember, Puerto Rican tobacco plants (not just any kind of "seed") were used to replant Cuba after the Spanish burned all their tobacco down to the ground during the Spanish American War (1898-1899). By 1901 all Havana had was tobacco from Puerto Rico and they used it wisely to create a great reputation.
After all, Puerto Rico became an American possession after the war, and labor, taxes, transportation, licensing and other factors came into play along with American Law to make the famous Puerto Rican Tobacco plants much more expensive than the products of Cuba.
Think about that the next time you light up a Don Collins Piramide Cigar while drinking a nice warm cup of Don Collins Café!
