⊗ Roberto P. Duran has played an integral role in the cigar industry for over 20 years and launched his own company, Roberto P. Duran Premium Cigars, in 2014. The Baracoa cigar line was created to fill the newly formed company’s “every day cigar” niche, which it does impressively. Named after the Cuban city in which Roberto once lived, Baracoa cigars are handmade at the boutique cigar factory Nicatabaco SA in Esteli, Nicaragua, with the same quality and care as the company’s premium cigar lines.
⊗ The differences lie mainly in the less expensive packaging, which is a carton versus wood box, and the length of the tobacco aging process. The blending of Nicaraguan filler and binder finished with an Ecuador Habano Criollo wrapper delivers a mild to medium-bodied smoke of classic, balanced flavors with pronounced nuttiness, hints of cocoa, and a light spice on the finish. The Baracoa is an enjoyable, expertly constructed cigar at a budget-friendly price.
In summary, this is a nice intense smoke. This powerful taste is typical Partagas.
⊗ Created to be an exceptional everyday premium cigar, Roberto Duran Baracoa draws its inspiration from the Duran family’s hometown in Cuba. Made with the same level of quality and care present in Duran’s other cigar lines, Roberto Duran Baracoa delivers a rich experience for an affordable price point.
⊗ Draped in an Ecuador Habano Criollo wrapper sitting atop a robust blend of Nicaragua long-leaves, Roberto Duran Baracoa is a medium to full-bodied, full flavored premium cigar. Perfect for everyday enjoyment, and perfect to share with friends, this blend is perfect for both seasoned enthusiasts and newcomers to cigars. You’ll find a host of balanced and complementary flavors including baking spice, cream, cocoa, coffee, and earth, and will see that this is a powerhouse cigar representing outstanding quality for the price. Available in both standard and box-pressed vitolas, try Roberto Duran Baracoa for a great introduction to the brand, and a delicious cigar that can be enjoyed daily.
