Are they made in the Dominican Republic or have they been rolled by a Cowboy in the wild west?
The truth is they are made in the Dominican Republic using quality tobacco, which has been aged for a minimum of 12 months to bring out the natural sweetness before the leaves have been enhanced with a sweet flavoring.
The Backwoods cigars were introduced nationally in 1981 and were an overnight success. Their unique structure and look – “WILD & MILD” as it was called, with a frayed end, tapered body and unfinished head, had great appeal to cigar smokers.
Many modern cigars are rolled to a very refined and specific shape, which often compresses the tobacco unevenly across the cigar. The Backwoods are rolled loosely using an even pressure, which results in a rustic looking cigar but draws easily and evenly packing plenty of flavor.
