All our cigar brands are 100% handmade.

A strategic partnership has been formed between Roberto Pelayo Duran Cigars and Nicatabaco SA of Esteli, Nicaragua. Nicatabaco is the ultimate boutique cigar factory in Esteli. We have appointed Cuban experts with many years of experience in leaf processing and factory operations to run the factory. The team of Cuban experts classify hundreds of packs of tobacco, making sure our brands only use the best raw materials.

All our cigar brands are 100% handmade by 20 skilled cigar rollers and buncheros. The size of operation allows us to maintain a dedication to quality and excellence, setting Roberto Duran and Azan cigars apart from its competitors. This hand rolling requires even our very best cigar buncheros months to learn. Each cigar roller and bunchero is specialized in one size only to become the absolute master in the art of cigar making. Azan and Roberto Duran distinctive Ecuador Corojo and Criollo wrappers receive its final fermentation process in the factory and when the time is ready it will then be wrapped aroundthe cigars giving them the final elegant and distinctive look. All the cigars will then age in our “Escaparate”, the cedar climate control aging room, for a minimum of two months before the cigars are brought to you.
