Cigar News: Maya Selva Cigars Debuted the Cumpay Robusto Maduro “Puro Nicaragua”

Maya Selva Cigars officially launched, during TPE2021, a new “PURO NICARAGUA” to the Cumpay collection. The Robusto Maduro with its naturally-fermented Nicaraguan wrapper will stay true to the collection’s unique character.

In the early 1999, and after the country´s peace accords, Maya launched Cumpay, captivating us with the volcanic highlands notes of Nicaragua’s Jalapa valley terroir. Back then Nicaragua was “One of the newest and most promising cigar terroirs”.

With its dramatic volcanic landscape – more than 50 volcanoes (five of which are still active) and with water covering 7% of its surface, Nicaragua combines both a hot, humid climate and fertile volcanic soil. These conditions yield crop after crop of rich, corpulent tobacco with highly sought-after combustion properties. The identity of its cigars can only be explained by this exceptional combination of factors.

Maya Selva Cigar´s CUMPAY ROBUSTO MADURO is dressed in the dark colours of the volcanic soil it originated in, its fillers, a blend of whole leaves, binders and wrappers are sourced exclusively from tobacco plants grown in Nicaragua. Our new Robusto Maduro features a complex array of aromas, with a hint of roasted coffee, hazelnut and caramel sweetness, providing a well-balanced, medium- to fuller-bodied cigar.

Cumpay is the Tawakha Indian name for a rolled tobacco leaf.

The new Robusto Maduro is expressed in a (4¾ x 50) vitola and a has a blend described by the company as:

  • Wrapper: Jalapa – Nicaragua
  • Binder: Estelí – Nicaragua
  • Filler: A selection of the best tobacco from Nicaragua

The Robusto Maduro is available in: 20-count boxes.
