Having been founded in the early 1970s, Backwoods have grown to be one of the best selling cigars in the USA. A simple idea is at the heart of the company – use only 100% natural tobacco, a novel idea for a flavoured cigar company. This means that their products do not include added flavourings or chemicals, just great tobacco.
This, coupled with their ageing and production methods, results in a wild aroma while providing an overall smooth smoke. Their size suits people who don’t have the time to indulge in a full-length cigar, catering for a shorter, more casual smoke. The key ingredient in the cigars is the use of a Connecticut Broadleaf as a wrapper, which has been aged for more than a year, allowing a fuller flavour to eminate from the sticks.
The machine-made Backwoods cigar has an untamed natural beauty with its petite size, tapered body, and unfinished, frayed head. The Backwood has an inner leaf and an outer leaf, but we don’t always get both. The all-natural tobacco inside of the Backwood comes from the Dominican Republic, and the genuine broadleaf wrapper is made in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and aged for 12 months, which allows for the natural sweetness to emerge to its surface before the addition of any flavors.
What keeps these leaves smelling and tasting fresh and good is the moisture-proof re-sealable packaging which was made to carry around comfortably in your pocket.
In Backwoods cigars are something between a front leaf and a cigarillo. But they are rolled differently than most cigars, as you don’t need to cut down the middle of the cigar to open it up.
Owned and manufactured by Altadis USA, Backwoods cigars have an inner and outer leaf that bind the filler tobacco. The inner leaf is produced in the Dominican Republic – while the outer broadleaf wrapper is produced in Fort Lauderdale, FL. These leaves are attractive to smokers since they don’t have to “cut and gut” a cigarillo to roll – they simply unravel the natural leaf wrapper and empty the contents of the cigar.
Backwoods Cigars are a mild smoke, that taste great at any time of the day. With a consistent theme of blending drink with smokes this Backwoods is a hit.
