After the Revolution of 1959 in Cuba, some growers emigrated to the Dominican Republic, bringing with them the seeds and the art of cultivation and care of the "Tabaco Negro Cubano", whose species is divided into 2 main families: Criollo and Corojo . From these 2 families of Cuban Tobacco many of the subsequent hybridizations were born, also used today for the manufacture of Cuban Cigars such as: the Criollo 98, the Corojo 99, the Habana 92 and the Habana 2000. The Piloto Cubano takes its name from the Cuban city of origin, Pilotos in the Pinar del Rio Region, arrived in the Dominican Republic in 1960 where the ideal soil and climatic conditions for the cultivation of this "progenitor" of the Havanensis family grown outside the land of origin are found. The Cuban Piloto belongs to the Dark Air Cured Class. The tobaccos belonging to this class are used for the manufacture of cigars, they are cured by air and undergo fermentation after which the leaves obtain a decidedly dark color and very marked aromatic characteristics. The Piloto Cubano we have selected is a Sun-Grown-Filler, that is a tobacco grown in the sun and used as a filling in the manufacture of cigars. The peculiarity of this tobacco, found by our company also on other cigar tobaccos, is that in spite of the strength and body that it has if smoked in a traditional way, the Piloto Cubano extract, belonging to our Elite Line, is instead soft. and enveloping and will be an exceptional vape companion for fans and lovers of Cuban cigars, looking for that unique flavor, which can only be found by smelling the real Cuban cigar.
