Maya Selva launched the Cumpay Robusto Maduro internationally this month. It will make its way to the U.S. at the TPE trade show in May. The Cumpay line has been around since 1999, it featured volcanic highlands notes of Nicaragua’s Jalapa valley terroir.
With its dramatic volcanic landscape – more than 50 volcanoes (five of which are still active) and with water covering 7% of its surface, Nicaragua combines both a hot, humid climate and fertile volcanic soil. These conditions yield crop after crop of rich, corpulent tobacco with highly sought-after combustion properties. The identity of its cigars can only be explained by this exceptional combination of factors. Cumpay is the Tawakha Indian name for a rolled tobacco leaf.
The blend Cumpay Robusto Maduro is a Nicaraguan Puro. It measures 4 3/4 x 50 and is described as medium to medium full bodied. The blend starts with a naturally-fermented Nicaraguan wrapper from Jalapa. It also uses a Nicaraguan binder from Estelí and Nicaraguan fillers including Ometepe, the country’s volcanic region. Compay Robusto Maduro comes in boxes of 20 and will make its debut at TPE 2021 in Las Vegas from May 12 – May 14.
