Although founded in 1940, The United Kingdom had exclusivity with this brand until 1993 when the contract was lost and distribution began worldwide. Some say that its name was taken from a Thornton Wilder play, “The Bridge of San Luis Rey”, which was popular at the time. However it is more likely that it refers to the town of San Luis in the heart of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco region, which is particularly famous for the superb wrapper leaves produced there.
Whatever the truth may be, Saint Luis Rey cigars enjoy a reputation among cigars lovers for the intensity of their flavour throughout the range. Medium-bodied and aromatic cigar with unique “bean flavours” such as cocoa, coffee, and vanilla.
All sizes are “Totalmente a mano, tripa larga” – totally hand made, long filler.
