Juan López Cigars
The composition of cigars is limited to tobacco leaves grown in the Cuban region of La Vuelta Abajo. This specificity contributes to raising Juan Lopez to the rank of high-end brands. Thanks to the quality of its Habanos combined with affordable prices, in a few years after its creation, the brand unleashed public enthusiasm and reached the peak of notoriety. She managed to maintain this position until the Cuban revolution. From there, its popularity experienced a relative decline. The brand is only really successful with a handful of enthusiasts. As a result, Habanos S.A ranks it Media Bajo in its pyramid. Juan Lopez bounced back in the 1990s following the launch of two new vitolas. The inclusion in his catalog of the Selección No. 1 and Selección No. 2 cigars allows him to win back the hearts of a wider audience.
Specificities of vitolas
Torcedores make Juan Lopez cigars by hand. These are long-stemmed cigars that easily tame the palate of lovers of light Cuban cigars. The brand’s creations are popular with novices and long-time smokers alike. Vitolas are sold in small volumes and are therefore quickly sold. This strategy has the effect of increasing the popularity of the brand, as the supply is insufficient to meet the demand. Juan Lopez cigars thus appear to be rare products.
Juan Lopez specializes in 4 modules, each one corresponding to a specific vitola. The Petit Corona is represented by the Juan Lopez Petit Coronas cigar. As for the Corona Gorda module, it is carried by the Selección No. 2 cigar. The Selección No. 1 cigar for its part displays a Robusto module. Finally, the Juan Lopez Panetelas Superbas is fitted with a Panatella module.
The soil of Vuelta Abajo is rich in minerals. It is also a particularly sunny location. The sun diffuses a powerful heat and a strong light there for up to 8 hours a day. Added to this is a moisture level much appreciated by tobacco plants. The conditions are therefore ripe to produce tobacco of excellent quality. A cigar made from a blend of Vuelta Abajo tobacco naturally arouses admiration, because its composition holds the mark of its superiority. This is the case with the designs featuring the rings of Juan Lopez.
