Home of the largest hand-made cigar factories in the world

The Dominican Republic produces the majority of the world’s premium cigars, far outpacing Nicaragua, Honduras, and Cuba. In fact, a great many Dominican cigars are made with tobaccos that were originally grown from Cuban seeds smuggled out of that island nation after Castro nationalized the cigar industry. But Dominican tobacco—even if grown from Cuban seeds—has a unique taste all its own, thanks to the rich makeup of Dominican soil.
