Manufacturing takes place in the Dominican Republic, approximately 500 kilometers north east from Colombia across the Caribbean Sea. Our Dictador rum barrels make the journey from Colombia to Dominican and are used to age our wrapper leaves. Barrel aging premium cigar tobacco imparts the spirit's flavours into the wrapper over time. Flavour changes are subtle, but noticeable after six months. After fermentation, most tobacco is baled and aged for some time by manufacturers in climate controlled warehouses. By aging another small step to the laborius cigar-making process which we believe is well worth it.
