Founded in the 1890’s.
The name of Fonseca is coming from a famous person who had his own style of clothing and appearance. This brand was established in 1890 by Don Francisco Fonseca. He made up his mind to reflect his own style onto his Cuba cigars which are wrapped in extremely silky tissue paper, and the intention of wrapping cigars in a silk tissue paper is to help the cigar maintain an optimal humidity level. This delicate wrapper also prevents the cigar from being damaged.
Fonseca cigars are known as one of the mildest cigars among all Cuban cigars. At first the Fonseca cuban cigars was produced in several different Havana cigar factories but now are produced in Quivican which is a small town in Havana and the taste of Fonseca cuban cigars is a mixture of sweetness and aromatic herbal quality.
