Maya Selva

The Tawakha Indians once lived in Central America. And their word for rolled-up tobacco leaves was Cumpay. In 1999, Maya Selva decided to use that word for her new line. A Nicaraguan Puro rolled in the factory she runs with the Plasencia family. Plasencia owns the factory, but Maya Selva is completely in charge of the tobacco, fermentation, and production of the cigars under the Maya Selva umbrella. Those brands are Flor de Selva, Villa Zamorano, and Cumpay.

Where Flor de Selva and Villa Zamorano often celebrate Selva’s Honduran heritage, the Cumpay brand is 100% Nicaraguan. The line consists of 6 sizes, five of which are available in Switzerland. And there is a single size Maduro version of the Cumpay, but that cigar is not available in Switzerland either.

Ministry of Cigars - Cumpay cigars drop in price in Switzerland.

In a world with ever-increasing tax and inflation, seeing some cigar prices actually drop is a good thing for the Swiss brothers and sisters of the leaf.
