Fonseca

Fonseca

Fonseca is one of the mildest Havana brands. They are ideal for beginners, or for light meals. The cigars are characterized by a pleasant sweetness and mild floral aromas.

Our recommendation for getting into the brand is the Cosacos, a classic Corona with a ring gauge of 42 and 135 mm in length. The cigar offers the novice and experienced aficionados a pleasant smoking experience due to their light sweetness and pleasant mild tobacco flavor.

Currently only two other shapes are produced from the standard portfolio of the brand, the Cadetes, a Petit Corona (ring gauge 40, length 123 mm) and the Delicias, a short panatela (ring gauge 36, length 115 mm). Both formats are also very mild and are characterized by the typical Fonseca taste.


About the brand Fonseca

In 1892 E. Fonseca began with the production of cigars that carried his name. He registered the brand in 1907. The outstanding knowledge of recognized experts helped his tobacco brand resounding success. From the beginning they wore their distinctive character recognition, the thin Japanese tissue paper, a tradition that continues to this day. The brand once included six formats. Currently there are only three shapes produced. One of the two cigars is called “Delicias”. It is a long filler and manufactured by the "tripa corta" method, with a short contribution made by hand.

In addition to the Cosacos Humidor two special editions of the brand were released. These are two Ediciones Regionales, the No. Fonseca. 4 was crafted in 2010 for the Benelux countries, the Amateur appeared in 2011 exclusively for the French market.
