Since 1996, Alex Nehorayan has been building one of the finest tobacco companies in the United States, Fuego Cubano. The company is completely dedicated to its goal of becoming one of the premier manufacturers of gourmet tobacco products, known for the greatest quality, flavor and value to the consumer. Based in Los Angeles, Fuego Cubano sells its products within the United States, holding Federal ATF and tobacco licenses in all 50 states, and throughout the greater international market. During its short lifetime, the company has established its own production facility and tobacco plantation in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and employs more than 250 people worldwide. The companyÂ¡Â¦s innovative approach to production, quality control and product development has led to the creation of a solidly diverse product line that impresses consumers with its great flavor and quality of design. Such innovation is most evident in Fuego CubanoÂ¡Â¦s newest and hottest selling product line: CIGETSÂÂ·
CIGETS are a unique hybrid of cigars and cigarettes, containing the same quality tobacco as their premium cigars but sized the same as cigarettes. They are all hand-rolled and individually manufactured at the companyÂ¡Â¦s Ecuadorian production facility, using the finest Dominican tobacco leaves and Indonesian wrappings available. CIGETS are currently offered in seven different flavors: Classic, Mellow, Cinnamon, Coconut, Swiss Chocolate, Virgin Island Rum, and Vanilla Hazelnut. The company utilizes a proprietary multi-point flavoring method that includes a heat activated processing agent, which ensures that the natural flavoring ingredients and the tobacco blend together seamlessly, exuding a wonderful aroma and taste. This helps maintain the companyÂ¡Â¦s philosophy toward flavored tobacco, which is that flavors should not be added to mask a mediocre tobacco taste but should enhance the overall smoking experience. CIGETS are available nationwide in packs of 18 per flip-top box and in cartons of ten packs each and can be found in all major tobacco outlets and retailers.
The same quality tobacco used in CIGETS is also found in Fuego CubanoÂ¡Â¦s line of premium cigars, sold under the COMPANION label. All of these cigars are made from the finest Cuban seed tobacco that has been aged for approximately four years and then hand selected by master cigar rollers. A combination of the finest tobacco leaves from Ecuador, Indonesian and the Dominican Republic are used to provide balance, gravity and strength to each cigar, offering a truly powerful smoking experience. Once the blend is selected, the cigars are individually placed in cedar wood molds, ensuring that the leaves and wrappings are fused together into a solid unit. Once molded, the cigars are then placed in high-quality cedar humidors and shipped out to the consumer. At every stage of production, Fuego Cubano maintains a strong level of human quality control and handling, avoiding the pitfalls and quality issues that arise from automated production. The COMPANION line is comprised of three flavoring levels: Red (mild), Silver (medium-bodied), and Bronze (strong-bodied). Each series is offered in multiple size configurations, which allows the consumer a greater choice in the duration of their smoking experience.
Fuego Cubano also offers the consumer other options for their tobacco experience. SINGLE SWEETSÂÂ· are a distinctively sweet line of individually packaged cigars. These are the most affordable items in the Fuego Cubano line, but they still contain the same 100% natural quality tobacco found in their other products. In addition to cigars and CIGETS, Fuego Cubano also offers the same quality in its smokeless chewing tobacco. These chews are hand cut, not machine cut like most of the other products on the market, and contain only food-grade flavoring ingredients, including licorice, molasses and honey. These chews are rich, dark and moist, and the flavors generally last two to three times longer than those of the major store-brand chewing tobaccos.
The company is beginning to expand its market reach to include a larger segment worldwide and is planning to establish its European sales office in the very near future. Additionally, Fuego Cubano is developing a new line of products that will take advantage of co-branding with other companies and will help expand the companyÂ¡Â¦s promotional opportunities. The company is dedicated to its consumers and places a strong emphasis on marketing research and consumer input, allowing them to more easily react to the needs and desires of their customers. Ultimately, Fuego Cubano wants one thing: to bring an old-world smoking experience to the modern day customer, allowing them a glimpse into the days of old Havana. With its strong and diverse product lines, quality manufacturing and dedication to detail, this goal has already been achieved.
