I think this cigar is something our customers are really going to appreciate; the level of care that goes into each aspect of the cigar from tobacco selection and blending to construction is immediately obvious when you smoke it.

PipesandCigars.com is a company that specializes in offering the Internet's largest selection of premium tobacco products. From rare and hard to find pipe tobacco to the world's best cigars, PipesandCigars.com has a very extensive inventory designed to appeal to everyone from novice smokers to extreme hobbyists who have been collecting rare tobacco products for decades. To further expand this selection, the company has announced that they have added the El Primer Mundo brand of cigars to their inventory.
El Primer Mundo cigars are made in factories in Nicaragua and in Miami. They utilize a wide variety of tobacco from small farms in the well-known tobacco growing nations of Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic. They also utilize tobaccos from Peru and Panama, countries not as frequently associated with premium tobacco. Sean Williams, President of the Primer Mundo Cigar Company, named the company "El Primer Mundo" (which translates in English to "The First World") in honor of these tobacco-producing nations that are often stricken with poverty and third-world living conditions. Williams refers to these countries as the First World for tobacco production, and named his new boutique cigar brand in their honor.
El Primer Mundo cigars are part of a growing trend in the premium cigar industry. "Boutique" or "Small Batch" cigars are made by small companies in limited production. This method of manufacturing allows for a wider variety of tobacco to be used in the cigars, taking advantage of unique and high-quality tobacco that simply isn't available in quantities large enough to accommodate the large-scale production of cigars like Macanudo, Romeo y Julieta, and Cohiba. The small batch production method also allows companies to employ a higher percentage of more experienced cigar rollers to make the cigars, as well as having the ability to pay closer attention to quality control. These methods cause each cigar to be more expensive to produce, but cigar aficionados have proven that they are more than willing to pay the additional cost for what they feel is a higher quality product.
Travis Lord, the company's Marketing Director, was reached for comment on the company's decision to begin carrying this brand. He said "Our customers have sent us a clear message that they come to us for cigars they have read about but cannot find in their local stores or from other websites. Our long-standing relationships within the industry allow us the opportunity to sell many rare and hard to find brands to cater to these customers. Additionally, never in my career of selling cigars has there been a higher demand for limited production, small batch cigars than we are experiencing now. Therefore, we are always on the lookout for new brands that offer excellent quality. I was very pleased to add the El Primer Mundo brand to our extensive offerings, as it is an outstanding cigar that I personally enjoy. I think this cigar is something our customers are really going to appreciate; the level of care that goes into each aspect of the cigar from tobacco selection and blending to construction is immediately obvious when you smoke it. "
El Primer Mundo cigars are available in a variety of sizes and five different blends. PipesandCigars.com is currently offering approximately half of their available cigars, with plans to stock the full line in the near future. The company also remains committed to offering a wide variety of boutique brands often made in limited quantities.
