Southern Classic Cigars
The Southern Classics Cigar headquarters is located in Florida but the cigar factor is in Esteli, Nicaragua. It’s a very small production facility and produces very high quality cigars but very low production rates. The quantities rolled is very limited. There are 5 cigars from Southern Classic; Dujo, Cuey, Coabey, Cucubano and the Anniversary Series.
Cigar factories are very interesting. They are very basic with just about no modern machinery of any kind. Almost everything is done with manual labor or better know as “handmade or man made”. The process of making a cigar from tobacco plant to end product is very technical though and well planned out.
Here’s an excellent video of the Esteli cigar factory making Southern Classic Cigars.
