Founded in 1891 by Francisco Fonseca, the brand was made in a small factory located on rue Dragones in Havana. It was sung by the poet Federico García Lorca: “I will go to Santiago with the fair head of a Fonseca”.
Francisco Fonseca owes the cigar wrapping in a thin sheet of Japanese paper and its housing in an individual tube. He also had the idea of creating a tasting room in his factory to test the blends chosen by his customers.
Fonseca also specialized in the manufacture of cigars for banquets, receptions, clubs, etc.
Flavor: light and medium taste
Characteristics: Don Francisco Fonseca founded his brand between 1890 and 1900. He was a handsome man who took great care in his outward appearance and transmitted this elegance to his cigars which he had individually wrapped in tissue paper, a tradition which continues until today for the four formats of the brand.
Mixtures of tobacco varieties from the Vuelta Abajo region make Fonseca an ideal cigar after light meals.
All Fonseca formats are entirely handmade.
