Fonseca No. 1 Cigar - Box of 25

Fonseca No.1 - An unusual size similar to a Lonsdale, this is the largest vitola currently made by the brand. It offers a light, vegetal taste at the outset that goes on to develop some earthiness as it progresses.

Don Francisco Fonseca founded his brand in the 1890s. A handsome man who cared deeply about appearances, he passed his sartorial precision on to his cigars, wrapping them in silky tissue paper—a tradition that continues to this day for all Habanos bearing his name.

The image of Francisco Fonseca, who developed the brand in 1906, still adorns the box today. Although only available in limited distribution, the Fonseca brand is renowned for its rich but mild flavour. Fonseca's delicate blend of filler and binder tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo zone makes it the ideal Habano to enjoy after a light meal.

All UK sizes of Fonseca are tripa larga, 'totalmente a mano'—long filler, totally handmade.

NO. 1 -  This unusual size, similar to a Lonsdale, is the largest vitola currently made by the brand. It offers a light taste at the outset, developing earthiness as it progresses, making it a delightful smoke for any occasion.
