This robust blend highlights the San Andres leaf, a native of the former Olmec tribe's lands in Southern Mexico. It features hand-picked Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli and Jalapa that have been aged for 3 years before being used in production. These fillers are then bound with a Nicaraguan binder and encased in either a Mexican San Andres Negro leaf or a Mexican San Andres Claro leaf– both offer a range of notes such as cacao, espresso, and spice that are expertly balanced.

"The Heart Land of the Olmecs is the tropical lowlands of modern-day Mexican states of Veracruz, Tabasco, and San Andrés Tuxtla. Today, this is the same region that grows some of the finest San Andrès Negro wrapper tobacco.

This seed variety is considered one of the oldest seed varieties in the world. Olmec cigars contain the finest Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from the Esteli and Jalapa valleys. After fermentation, these filler tobaccos are bale aged for three years before arriving on the production floor.

The San Andrés Negro wrapper tobacco comes from the rich volcanic soil of the land of the Olmecs. It is fermented slowly at low temperatures to preserve the natural oils that give flavor. The blend delivers a full-bodied smoking experience with rich flavors of cacao, dark espresso, and spice without being too aggressive."
