Cigar News: Foundation Announces Event-Only "The Grasshopper"Ever the student of tobacco, is always studying cigars and tobacco. During his studies he kept finding references to an antique book, ‘A Textbook on Tobacco,’ by Carl Werner in 1914. In this book the author talks about the origin of the word ‘cigar’ and its linguistic origins in Spain. Ciggara translates to grasshopper in Spanish and with the insects filling local gardens with their loud chirps, Spaniards called the gardens ciggarals- “places where the grasshoppers are thickest.”

Cigar News: Foundation Announces Event-Only "The Grasshopper"Private Spanish gardens became popular for growing tobacco, and the word cigar naturally started being used. This interpretation profoundly struck Nick as the most logical etymological explanation for the word cigar that he had come across. Naming ’s new event-only cigar pays homage to this history and the poetic evolution of the words we use every day.
