Dark Fired Kentucky – even the name tastes exceptional. A tobacco created from a tradition going back for centuries, brought to perfection by farmers in Kentucky. In a special wood-fired drying process, the tobacco is hung in barns above smouldering oak and hickory wood. Each individual leaf is then able to absorb these unique, roasted, smoky aromas that make this type of tobacco so exceptional.
You can smell it right from the harvest. This tobacco is given more time than any other to mature beneath the full Kentucky sun, right until the end of the harvest period. It is then dried in the smoke of smouldering oak and hickory wood so that the characteristic roasted, smoky aromas that make this tobacco so exceptional are absorbed leaf by leaf.
The unique drying of the tobacco gives Buena Vista Dark Fired Kentucky cigars earthy, roasted & smoky aromas without stifling the soft, spicy aromas. The sweet notes are reminiscent of caramel and work well with the subtle nutty elements.
