English Market Selection


EMS stands for English Market Selection, a description used in Cuba for over a century to identify the quality of cigars designated for the British market. It is the cornerstone of the UK’s long established reputation as the world centre for the finest Havana cigars.

Británicas Extra

  • Year: 2017
  • Flavour: Medium
  • Vitola: Británicas Extra
  • Ring gauge: 48
  • Length: 5 ⅜ Inches / 137mm
  • Inspired by the incredible success of the 2011 UK Regional Edition, the Bolivar Británicas Extra, this medium-bodied perfecto was not released until 2020. Thankfully it was well worth the wait for this long anticipated release. The bands that dress the cigar are faithful recreations of the type used during the late 1890's or early part of the 20th century, helping this cigar to look as good as it tastes.


  • Year: 2008
  • Flavour: Medium
  • Vitola: Dobles
  • Ring gauge: 50
  • Length: 6 ⅛ Inches / 155mm
  • A Habanos brand not normally imported into the UK made this an intriguing selection for British smokers. The band and ‘vista’ (the label on the inside lid of the cigar box) were faithfully recreated from examples taken from the early part of the 20th century. A must have cigar for many collectors.
