The tobacco fields of Viñales Valley
Rolled from tobacco grown in the valley of Vinales, one of the world’s most famous cigars is the seven inch Romeo y Julieta ‘Churchill’, a complex smoke that requires patience over its one and a half hour smoking time. Don’t draw too quick, the cigar will overheat and become harsh. In Vinales you’ll see cigars rolled and packed, and learn about the old-world cultivation methods still in use, but its calming charm goes beyond a quiet, smooth smoke: take your time instead to explore the terrain and nature of the wonderfully tranquil and green valley. Its lush tobacco fields, verdant forest and discreet villages, all tucked in languid splendour beneath giant scatters of cliffed and forest-clad hummocks, will amaze you for their diverse flora and fauna, and lull you into a serenity as pleasant and hypnotic as any wafting curl of cigar smoke.
