A little history behind this cigar: Isabela cigars are the direct result of hard work, dedication and heritage from a man named Mr. Vincent Ortiz. Who is Mr. Ortiz you ask? Well, Mr. Ortiz is from Cuba and has a rich history in the cigar making business, which includes several years of  producingspecific tobacco blends and rolling cigars for President Castro himself while residing in Cuba ( This included his beloved Cohiba Line). Since that time, Mr. Ortiz migrated to Miami Florida where he has embarked on producing his own line of cigars to share with the Americans. Mr. Ortiz uses a special blend of tobacco in his cigars and polishes them off with a sweet sugar cane taste on the cap, much like they were produced during the Pre-Castro Cuban cigars era. Mr. Ortiz was born in Cuba, rolled cigars there most of his life and now wishes to share his works with all of you. So now that you know the history behind this cigar,lets get to the cigar!
Until Next Time
