On a warm and sunny day in Tamboril, considered to many as the cigar capital of the world, lying in the outskirts of Santiago, the Dominican Republic lies Jose Arnaldo Blanco, known to all as “Jochy”, puffing calmly on a cigar. A man who has worked with tobacco for as long as he can recall and his unconditional love and passion for it is obvious to all.
Through hard work and determination, he’s grown and processed tobacco to perfection throughout his tenure as a manufacturer and grower for the last few decades, and his factory Tabacalera Palma has been the home for outstanding cigars that have gained the love and appreciation of smokers all over the world.
An authentic Dominican cigar elaborated with the hands of the best rollers of Tabacalera Palma. Blended around an outstandingly flavourful Ecuadorian wrapper, the Dominican has grown Corojo binder and filler made up of Piloto Cubano, Criollo 98, and Pelo de Oro, creating medium-to-full, attractively consistent, and aromatic smoke that envies no other.
