    I'll definitely dig into this, I find the history of industries interesting and I'm sure the cigar industry has some fantastic stories!

    There's a drjoeshow episode where he goes into this.

    Back in the day the brands were created in Cuba. The blends, the marketing established these brands. Then at the time of the revolution a lot of people left Cuba. And they set up, again, producing cigars in other countries. They took their experience, their brands, they grew and blended cigars that they sold under the brands they had established back in Cuba.

    They are completely separate entities now Cuban montecristo and non cuban montecristo. Completely separate. Same with other brands. So which brands are the originals...? The ones left in Cuba or the ones reborn outside Cuba as the people left?

    Now of course not all the people left so some brands might not have been phoenixed by any of the original families. But rode the coat tails of the established brands. Not sure what the origin of Cohiba red dot is actually...

    But they are not there same companies.

    Hirochi seems to still be in charge of the family operation in Cuba, V, but also now produces out of Cuba, HR. A unique situation?

    Have a read of the histories.

Who that brand is gets a bit complicated many including Monte are the originals owners who set up elsewhere when forced to hand over their companies during the revolution.

    Give this a read for more information

    Thanks for this Simeone! I never realised the reason but it makes so much sense now. I'll give this a full read later today 👍🏻

    Don't know what it is, but I'd say it has a good amount of domenican tobacco in it .
