Chinchal

What Are Cuban Sandwich Cigars?

Essentially, premium cigars contain only long-filler. These are tobacco leaves that run the entire length of the cigar. The Cuban sandwich cigar generally has one long-filler binder stuffed with short-filler tobacco. The short filler is made up of the remains, scraps, of long-filler cigars. So, you’re getting high-quality tobacco, usually at a very reasonable price.

What Is A Chinchal?

Dr. Gaspar Jorge García Galló, in his classic Biography of Habano Tobacco1, defines CHINCHAL as a workshop or small tobacco factory, almost always with family characteristics and surroundings. These small workshops, established in a shack near the bohío del guajiro, appeared in Cuba at the dawn of the 19th century to satisfy the demand for tobacco from the family itself and later that of its immediate environment so that the process of marketing its products started completely naturally and not induced.

Following Cuban tradition, we took the remains of our premium cigars to hand wrap these delicious Cuban Sandwiches. That offers our customers a premium smoking experience at a much lower price. We’ve used only the best Nicaraguan tobacco for the filler and binder.
