At the J.C. Newman PENSA factory in Nicaragua, Drew Newman heard of an old style of rolling cigars from the factory’s general manager, Lazaro Lopez. Lopez runs the operation down at PENSA and his grandfather used to bundle cigars uniquely in 1940’s Cuba. He would bind the finished cigars together without any molds or presses. Rather, he would use leaves from the Yagua, a Cuban royal palm tree, to give these cigars a shape.

These cigars undergo a slightly higher moisture rolling process, allowing them to absorb the shape of other cigars within the Yagua leaf once humidity stabilizes. The result is a collection of Yagua cigars, each boasting a subtly unique shape. Encased in a crate-style box, these cigars exude a charming antique and rural aesthetic.

Featuring a U.S.A. Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper enveloping Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, the Yagua stands as a testament to unparalleled craftsmanship. Reminiscent of the iconic J.C. Newman Cigar, The American, this offering is truly one-of-a-kind in the industry. Immerse yourself in the timeless artistry of Yagua cigars, a blend of tradition and innovation that captures the essence of a bygone era.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This cigar opens with a rich medley of earthiness, leather, and oak, complemented by notes of sourdough bread and roasted flavors, all wrapped in a medium-full intensity. As you savor each draw, the toasty essence takes center stage, accompanied by hints of cedar, black pepper, coffee, and a savory meatiness.

The finale is a crescendo of flavors, starting with a return to earthiness, followed by a subtle interplay of generic pepper, green grapes, and a lingering damp earthiness, culminating in an enduring black pepper finish.
