The Central American nation of Honduras has been a cigar producer for decades. Following the Castro revolution in Cuba when many tobacco farmers left their homeland, the Cuban seed was planted in several countries, Honduras being the first. There are four growing areas, two of which are located close to Guatemala: Copan and Azacualpa Valley. The others are Talanga Valley and the largest and most renowned is the Jamastran Valley which is located in the south near Danli and the Nicaraguan border.
Many of the brands made in Honduras use some element of Honduran tobacco. These include Rocky Patel, Alec Bradley, CAO, and Punch.
