The Legend Continues...

Pedro Martin Cigars - The Legend ContinuesPedro Martin cigars are based on several blends created by the master himself shortly before his death. Although the industry lost Pedro in 2010, his expertise and passion continues to shine, thanks to his daughter Maria. Formerly the national sales manager for Camacho, Maria is now the owner of the Martin line and seeks to maintain the family business. The company has six blends available, split into two lines – gold and platinum.

The family story dates back to the 1930s, while Maria’s father was perfecting the craft as he worked in a Cuban factory. During the 30s, 40s and 50s, Pedro Martin created cigars enjoyed by people around the world, including American soldiers who fought in World War II. In 1950, the family founded their own factory, but this was short lived. A few years after the factory’s construction, the Cuban government wrested control of the tobacco industry, leaving many farmers and blenders without a way to practice their craft. The family picked up and moved to Detroit in 1961. Here, they continued producing quality stogies and, in 1974, created one of the most iconic factories in the industry – Tabacalera Tropical. Out of this factory came the sublime Solo Aromas, Cacique, Maya, Particulares and V Centennial— lines that has since come to be associated with the family name. Pedro sold the factory in 2002 and spent time as an instructor and leaf broker until his passing at the age of 89.

Pedro Martin cigars embody the staggering amount of experience the family has in the field.  They are expertly made stogies. There are six products offered by the company, three in the Gold line and three in the Platinum line. The three Gold stogies are the Ruby, the Corojo and the Martin Gold. The Platinum line consists of the Royal, the M and the Fiera.

The Ruby has a Maroon Corojo wrapper and is made from Nicaraguan binders and fillers. Nicaraguan tobaccos are a common element in Pedro Martin cigars.  They are found in every product the company offers. The Ruby is a medium to full stick and features strong notes of pepper, wood and orange tart.

The Corojo has, naturally, a Corojo wrapper with Nicaraguan tobaccos in the binder and filler. Like the Ruby, this stick is medium to full flavor and has superb construction. Reviewers were consistent in their praise of the brand’s attention to detail in construction, as there is little veining apparent in any of the products. In addition to wood and black cherry, the Corojo also features some feisty pepper notes.

The Pedro Martin Gold cigars are wrapped with Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf and are medium in strength. This stogie has a flavor profile consisting of pepper, wood, baking spices and sugar cookie.

The Royal is a mild to medium Connecticut Shade stick that features sweetness, wood, spice and graham cracker notes. The M has a Mexican Maduro wrapper and consists of leather, sweet cherry, chocolate and baker’s spices in the flavor profile. The M is a medium bodied stick that is close to full. The Fiera is a Nicaraguan Maduro with wood, cocoa and bittersweet chocolate layers. It is a medium to full stogie, but isn’t too complex, making it a strong choice for a novice looking for something stronger.
