Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co. hails from Danli, Honduras and has been releasing ultra-premium cigars since it opened in 2012. The trio of founders, Oscar Valladares, Hector Valladares and Bayron Duarte, all bring rich tobacco knowledge to the company. Oscar worked for cigar industry titan, Rocky Patel, for over nine years and Duarte worked at Oliva and General Cigars for over twenty years. Leaf by Oscar, a collaboration with Island Jim, was the first cigar series to be flawlessly handcrafted at the factory and helped the company gain notoriety. Originally, the series was meant to be sold exclusively at Island Jim’s retail store, Leaf and Bean. However, Leaf by Oscar was so highly acclaimed and sought after, the duo expanded distribution. Cigar aficionados need to try the luxurious smokes crafted by Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co.
