Flor de CopanOrigin : Honduras

Wrapper : Honduras

Binder : Honduras
Price : ~$8 each

There is not much information available about the Flor de Copan brand. I only know that the cigars are made in Honduras (that’s indicated on the band) and that they are distributed by Altadis SA (recently acquired by Imperial Tobacco Group). I picked up a couple of these mostly for their good looks.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
The cigar is nicely packed in a cedar sleeve held by two bands. After I removed the sleeve, I discovered a shiny light wrapper, with very fine veins. Overall, it has a classic robusto look.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★★
The stogie seems to be packed regularly. It is surprisingly light as well. There is a pleasant although faint aroma of barnyard. After an easy cut, the pre-draw turned out to be very easy, mostly woody, with a hint of spice.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★½☆
In the first third, the woodsy flavors are skillfully mixed with peppery notes. One inch in, the spice disappears and I begin smoking a uni-dimensional but perfectly enjoyable cigar with dominant cedary flavors. The draw and the amounts of smoke are excellent. Even though there is not much evolution, the smoke is very comfortable and soothing.

Value : Rating: ★★★☆☆
Not a bad value for this Honduran stick. I felt that it was worth the money.

Overall Rating : Rating: ★★★★☆
Although it doesn’t surprise with an exceptional and complex mix of flavors, the Flor de Copan Rothschild is a decent cigar. I will be smoking one during my next poker game.

  1. that is a pretty package that stick comes in, based on this review i’ll keep an eye out for one of these…

  2. Are these the same brand that JR sells by the bundle? I think the robustos are $35 for a bundle of 25. Might be worth a try.

  3. The band looks different although both are from Honduras. I don’t think this is the same cigar.

  4. that wrapper looks beautiful. Seems like a good value. If and when I need to restock this is going to be on the list.

  5. $59.54 for 20. You can buy them here.

  6. Awesome lead wflor421. that’s right in my sweet spot for price per stick. Thanks.

    this is one of my favorite cigars now. my son brought me a box back from a trip he made to the factory in honduras. i have not been able to find them any where so thanks for the link. rodneytc

  8. This cigar is testament to not judging a book by its cover esthetically it is perfect… but other than appearance this is just a 3 dressed up as a 9. And giving it a 3 is being generous. Out of the 3 I have smoked 2 of them had the worst draw I have ever experienced, tantamount to trying to drink a dairy queen blizzard through the smaller diameter soda straw. I would deffinately not recommend these dog rockets and certainly not at the $16CAD that I paid

  9. Do not confuse the Flor De Copan with the bundled version which is actually seconds of various cigars. The first quality FDC has a red label not brown and it’s a world of difference. The red label Flor De Copan is a fantasic cigar. Very hard to find though.

  10. An excellent stick for the money!
    The construction is excellent, not too tight or too loose.
    Throughout the burn is even, with great smoke output.
    I usually smoke Cuban cigars so i thought the the “Other Cigars” (Honduras, Nicaragua etc) are of lesser quality but this one proved me wrong.
    You can’t beat such quality for such a (relatively) low price.

  11. Just bought this on appearance.
    One of the worst cigars I have ever had.
    Looks beautiful.
    Dry draw to easy, but flavourful.
    Smells lovely un-lit.
    Horrible burn.
    No flavor comes through. Sad draw. It like smoking a newspaper.

  12. I have. “MONARCA” from Flor de Copan factory I we like to Share 1 sigar to prubed this is. Best sigar I want to put in this Jewel Sigar in the BOSTON market so New England going to enjoying this jem from Honduras
