Located in the heart of the former cigar capitol of the world, Ybor City, Tampa, Covadonga Cigars is a boutique for the aficionado, specializing in handcrafted cigars rolled by Cuban masters with nearly two decades' worth of rolling experience under their belts. The family-owned business uses its own unique blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Colombian tobacco leaves to produce a full-bodied flavor that everyone from novices to connoisseurs can appreciate and enjoy. Our commitment to quality is illustrated by the fact that we test every Covadonga cigar before applying the final outer wrapper leaf by processing each one through a Drawmaster machine. According to our strict quality control standards, every cigar must pass through the Drawmaster machine without any dents or soft spots; if any defects are found in a cigar, it is sent back to the rollers to be re-rolled into a cigar that suits our high standards.
The experienced rollers at Covadonga create several types of both parejo and figurado cigars. Our top seller is the Covadonga Cuava Corto, a presidente style figurado with a vitola of 60 x 5 and filled with Nicaraguan ligero leaves to give each draw of the cigar a sweet, chocolaty flavor with hints of leather. The Havana Classic Robusto cigar is another one of our bestsellers; it is, as its name suggests, a classic parejo cigar with a milder flavor that comes from our unique blend of Dominican ligero and Nicaraguan viso leaves wrapped in dark, oily Ecuadorian wrapper leaves that burn smoothly. All of our cigars can be purchased as single smokes or in twenty-five count packages.
Unsure of which of our cigars to try first? Found a few favorites that you would like to buy in bulk? We also offer a range of sampler packs and large gift packages in our physical and online stores in addition to the single cigars. Our 3 Cigar Gift Sampler holds a Toro, a Torpedo, and a Churchill rolled with Nicaraguan ligero leaves, and the 5 Cigar Gift Sampler includes these in addition to a Robusto and a Double Robusto. Our 9 Cigar Sampler contains several different blends and wrappers to try alongside different shapes and flavors, including several cigars with highly coveted Maduro wrapper leaves. If you are looking for an even larger selection of cigars, either for yourself or to give as a very generous gift, both the Cienfuegos Mixed Bundle and the Havana Mixed Bundle have assortments of twenty-five of our high quality cigars for your enjoyment.
