Brazilian cigars are relatively unknown to many smokers and have never caught on in the American marketplace. A small company named Tobacos Mata Fina is aiming to change this trend with its Monte Pascoal line. Translated into English, Monte Pascoal means Easter Mountain. The company has a manufacturing workforce of 25 employees which allows an annual production of approximately 500,000 units. Tobacos Mata Fina blends each of the six vitolas in the Monte Pascoal line with a different ratio of Mata Fina and Mata Norde, creating stark differences in flavor between sizes. If that isn’t unique enough each box of cigars is stamped with two dates; the date the cigars were rolled and the date they were boxed.

It is very cold and snowy here in New England, so it is appropriate that the featured cigar comes from warm and beautiful Brazil. Monte Pascoal (Tabacos Mata Fina Ltda) is a business unit of the Orsi Family Group which detains other businesses related to wine (Italy), steel (Brazil) and real estate (Brazil). Brazil is not typically considered one of the top tobacco producing countries of the world, but this is certainly changing. The factory is located in Cruz das Almas - Bahia in the middle of the Recôncavo Baiano area. I learned about this brand from listening to Bob and Dale from Dogwatch Cigar radio, and since I am a big fan of the country (having visited twice), I am quite excited to provide my thoughts about this brand. The Monte Pascoal comes in six vitolas, and today’s featured size is the 5.5 X 52 in. Belicoso.
