Sancti Spiritus band

Sancti Spiritus is a brand of handmade premium cigar owned by Cigar King, Inc.

History and background[edit]

The brand was created by José "Pepin" Garcia and is manufactured at the El Rey de los Habanos factory in the Little Havana section of Miami, Florida.

It takes its name from the Sancti Spiritus province of Cuba, within which Don Pepin's home town of Cabaiguán is situated.

Description[edit]

The brand consists of a single range of four vitolas. The cigar is a medium-bodied cigar. The filler and binder are Nicaraguan tobaccos and the wrapper is a Nicaraguan Corojo. The band is based on the Cuban flag, and shows a scene from the Plaza Mayor[1] in the city of Trinidad in which the statue of Terpsichore,[2] the Greek Muse of dance and dramatic chorus, is prominent. The cigars come packed 25 to a box.
