The United States has a rich tradition of cigar making dating back to the first crop of tobacco planted in Virginia in 1612. Cigar tobacco was grown in every American Colony and many Founding Fathers, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, were tobacco farmers. There is no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than by lighting up The American. There is simply no other cigar like it.
The American is rolled at J.C. Newman’s El Reloj cigar factory in the “Cigar City” of Tampa, Florida. The blend uses an exclusive Florida Sungrown wrapper, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and Connecticut Havana and Pennsylvania Mennonite filler tobaccos. Because of the added thickness, the Double Robusto has an extra leaf of Pennsylvania ligero tobaccos, making it the strongest The American cigar. All of the packaging, from the wood in the cigar boxes, to the paper for cigar labels, to the cellophane that protects each cigar, is made in the United States as well.
