Connoisseur Selection

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Connoisseur Selection is a brand of handmade premium cigar owned by Holt's Cigar Company,Inc..

History and background[edit]

The brand was first introduced to the U. S. market in 1983. At that time, it was a full-bodied cigar made at the Villazon factory in Honduras, but when Villazon was purchased by General Cigar Company in 1997, manufacture of the brand ceased.

In May 2007, after a ten-year hiatus, the brand was re-introduced. It is now blended and manufactured by Pepín Garcia at Tabacalera Cubana in Estelí, Nicaragua.


This current incarnation of this brand is a full-bodied, full-flavored cigar. The range consists of five models with names of a royal character. It is a puro, as the filler, binder and wrapper are all Nicaraguan tobaccos. They are packed unbanded and un-celloed in varnished chests of 25.
