Founded in 1891 by Francisco Fonseca, the brand was manufactured in a small factory on Calle Dragones in Havana. It was sung by the poet Federico García Lorca: “I will go to Santiago with the blonde head of a Fonseca”.
We owe Francisco Fonseca the wrapping of the cigar in a thin sheet of Japanese paper and its housing in individual tube. He also had the idea to create a tasting room in his factory to test the mixes chosen by his customers.
Fonseca also specialized in making cigars for banquets, receptions, clubs, etc.
Flavor: light and medium taste
Characteristics: Don Francisco Fonseca founded his brand between 1890 and 1900. He was a handsome man who took great care of his appearance and passed on this elegance to his cigars, which he wove individually in a tissue paper, a tradition which continues until today for the four formats of the brand.
Blends of tobacco varieties from the region of Vuelta Abajo make Fonseca an ideal cigar after light meals.
All Fonseca formats are made entirely by hand.
Quality: very good
