Read About La Invicta Nicaragua

The birth of the La Invicta brand dates back to the 1940’s. At this time, various trade sanctions and currency restrictions were imposed globally due to the Second World War, with one being the use of the American dollar. This made it difficult to purchase Cuban cigars and so to maintain a supply of war time smokes for the UK, La Invicta (translating to “The Undefeated”) was created by cigar importer Hunters & Frankau. Using tobaccos grown in Jamaica and other regions, the cigars were blended specifically for the taste preference of the British smoker at the time.

La Invicta remains a firm favourite today with a new blend and range to reflect the needs and palate of the modern day cigar smoker. La Invicta Honduran cigars are hand rolled at the Tabacos De Oriente Factory in Honduras using a blend of the finest leaves sourced locally from Talanga and Jamastran. They offer subtle, delicate flavours ideal for new or casual cigar smokers.
