Award-winning father-and-son cigar-makers José ‘Pepin’ and Jaime Garcia blend a masterful Nicaraguan Puro from the finest premium tobaccos grown on prized family estates in Estelí, Jalapa, and Namanji.
Pasión boasts a stunning Shade Grown wrapper from the celebrated fields of Namanji, where tobacco plants thrive in a unique microclimate 18 miles east of Estelí. The Garcias recognized the region’s untapped potential more than a decade ago. Warm days, cool nights, and fertile black soils produce tobaccos of exceptional flavor, quality, and aroma. Today, over one-third of the private 300-acre estate is dedicated to Shade Grown wrapper on plots shielded from direct sunlight and nourished by the basin’s snaking river.
