|A small settlement was founded in 1519 on a Caribbean shore caressed by warm, tropical waters. In honour of Christopher Columbusm, the colonists wanted to name it San Cristobal, but the native Indians preferred a word from their own language: La Habana. San Cristobal de La Habana became the beautiful and sensual cosmopolitan capital of Cuba. Corporacio n Habanos s.a. is offers a new masterpiece to satisfy the taste of the most demanding smokers with a unique blend of tobaccos in an exceptional range of vitolas. New series of cigars was launched to mark the 480th anniversary of the founding of Havana.
These cigars have exquisite aroma and inimitable flavour. Two of the vitolas have new Habanos sizes: La Fuerza, like a robusto but extra long, and El Morro, similar in gauge to a Double Corona and slightly longer than a
Churchill. The Serie Castillos has been chosen for the launching.
The vitolas will adopt the names of important castles of the city: El Morro, La Fuerza, La Punta, El Principe.
The following series could be included in the future: -Series of famous Parks of La Habana. -Series of Contemporary Cuban Painters. -Series of Monuments.|
