Founded in 1891 by Francisco Fonseca, the brand was manufactured in a small factory located on Dragones Street in Havana. It was sung by the poet Federico García Lorca: “I will go to Santiago with the blond head of a Fonseca”.
Francisco Fonseca was responsible for wrapping the cigar in a thin sheet of Japanese paper and housing it 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 had also specialised in the manufacture of cigars for banquets, receptions, clubs, etc.
Flavour: light and medium taste
Characteristics: Don Francisco Fonseca founded his brand between 1890 and 1900. He was a handsome man who took great care of his outward appearance and transmitted this elegance to his cigars, which he had individually wrapped in tissue paper, a tradition that continues to this day for the four formats of the brand.
The blends of tobacco varieties from the Vuelta Abajo region make Fonseca an ideal cigar after light meals.
All Fonseca formats are entirely handmade.
Quality: very good
