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.

Read About Cuban Minis

Cuban Minis are machine-made in Cuba using 100% tobacco harvested from plantations in the Vuelta Abajo region of the island which is widely regarded as the finest tobacco growing land in the world.

The Mini, Club and Puritos sizes offer a brief taste of authentic rich Cuban tobacco and are ideal for those short alfresco smoking breaks when time does not permit a handmade Habano to be enjoyed in full.

The underlying flavours and aromas of the prestigious Habanos brands they represent are faithfully recreated with the larger format (Puritos and Shorts) additionally dressed with the iconic cigar bands of the brand.
