Vuelta Abajo is one of the five major tobacco regions in Cuba. Bordered by the Sierra de los Oraganos mountains, the mineral-rich soil is said to cultivate the best tobacco in the world. It is here that the Habano, the highest-quality cigar attainable, is produced.
The climate, humidity, and subsoil of the region is ideal for the harvesting of aromatic tobacco. The leaves of the plant contain a high concentration of nitrate, which gives the tobacco a full-bodied taste and structure. Though many have tried, no other region of the world is able to produce the strength and power of tobacco produced in this climatic region.
