Originally, the composition of the Saint Luis Rey brand was based on the ideas of two British tobacco importers. The company "Zamora y Guerra", located in the Vuelta Abajo, implemented these ideas and registered the name "Saint Luis Rey" in 1940.
It is named after the (successfully filmed) novel by Thornton Wilder The Bridge of San Luis Rey.
Saint Luis Rey's heavy to medium-heavy cigars enjoy an excellent reputation among connoisseurs thanks to their intense taste. The full, but very fine taste is underlined by the dark, smooth, oily wrapper. They are produced by Romeo y Julieta and resemble Romeos in many ways. Unfortunately, only about 60000 pieces of the highest quality are produced per year.
All formats are 'totalmente a mano, tripa larga' - completely handmade long fillers.
