HAV-A-JOE cigars, were introduced in 1947 as a victory cigar to honor all the Joe's who served in WWII.
HAV-A-JOE's brand name can be credited to Cpl. Joe Gonzalez who served in Africa and Europe. On his return from the war, Joe related to his family and friends how people in the towns and villages would call out "Joe", "I turned my head in the direction of the caller, even though we were all called Joe, I always felt they were calling out to me", Joe said.
Joe's brother, Faustino, had a cigar company and came up with the HAV-A-JOE cigar brand name. HAV-A-JOE cigars were manufactured and distributed in the Tampa area by , F. Gonzalez Cigar Company, Tampa, Florida during 1947 - 1951.
The current HAV-A-JOE cigars are made to the specifications and consistency of the post WWII product in aroma and taste. HAV-A-JOE's are handmade, long filler with a maduro wrapper. HAV-A-JOE is available in a handsome cedar box with 25 SOLDADOS (Soldiers), each wrapped in shaved cedar and cellophane for freshness. The size is a 6/44 corona, which coincidently was also the June 1944 D-Day date.
