Premium Panamanian Cigar

arouse the sense of the finest puro grown in Sortova

History of Our Cigars/Puros

Due to political instabilities in the past, Panama and its diverse products have been kept in the shadows until recently. The world is now rediscovering this Country, for business, tourism, beauty and tobacco.

Panama has a rich history of cigar manufacturing for over 100 years. The tobacco is grown in the Chiriqui Province, a lush region well known for it’s agricultural products. The consistent tropical climate has been a prime location for cigar production much like her neighbors, such as Nicaragua, Honduras and yes, Cuba. In this Province of Chiriqui, high in the mountains, there lies the finest soil in the area known as Sortova, This area is the heart of tobacco production in Panama. This is where the “Don Giovanni” Puros is grown and rolled.

For Don Giovanni, it all began when Mr. Edel Gomez of “Sanchez y Gomez” Cigars, suggested growing tobacco in Panama, since Sortova region had the reputation in growing one of the finest tobacco for major cigar makers in the world.

When Don Giovanni decided to produce cigars, he decided to produce them in the same manner that Cuban Puros were made…. mainly for two reasons. First, the tobacco plant is cultivated unlike anything grown anywhere else in the world. Second, Cuban Puros have never been blended, they contain only Cuban tobacco and no preservatives, no taste enhancers, no fillers, never mixed or blended with tobacco from another country.

Since 2008, his tobacco was harvested in the region of Sortova and soon after the first aging process was completed, by coincidence several Puros were totally hand made and as a gift, given to the Prince Arthur A. Pagan of the House of Homestead in the Principality of the Country of Andorra.

Soon after, the Prince suggested to Don Giovanni to produce an exclusive Puro in the Cuban Cigar tradition, strictly for the Prince’s enjoyment to include for his Dignitaries.  (Puro: term given for a cigar that is not blended with any other tobacco of another country)

Our Premium Cigars/Puros

The “Don Giovanni” brand begun its journey.

The Don Giovanni Puros are entirely “made by hand”… in order to enjoy the freshest most natural maduro taste available. These Puros are all natural and all leaves are hand selected and examined for select quality assurance and aged for over four years. By the way, again… these Puros are not blended, which means that all these totally hand made Puros contain only tobacco from Don Giovanni’s own plantation. What is inside, is also outside… 100% all tobacco grown in Sortova, strictly Puro.

All his Puros are long leaf fillers and totally hand rolled by a roller with over 18 years experience in the process of producing a medium to full bodied Puro and only in dark red (Colorado) Maduro which gives the finest flavor of pure, natural, aged tobacco.

By the way, the “Criollo” style Puro, is made with no molds, no press…. just the way Puros were made years ago and enjoyed world wide before modernization and machinery.

Don Giovanni believes that, what was good for kings and monarchy worldwide, is just as good for today’s most discriminating cigar aficionados.

A message from Don Giovanni
