In order to fully understand the history of Hoyo de Monterrey Churchills, it is important to first discuss the origin and recognition of Cuban cigars. When unveiling the history of cigars, we cannot fail to recognize the roles played by the ancient voyagers such Christopher Columbus, countries such as Spain and Cuba as well as France and Portugal. Cuban cigar enthusiasts have enjoyed this brand of tobacco for over two hundred years and will continue to do so for the next several years.
It is not clearly known from history when or where the first cigar was smoked. The data available suggests that the first mention of Cuban cigars was when Christopher Columbus reported that Cuban Indians smoked a certain primitive form of tobacco made from dried tobacco twisted and wrapped with palm or plantain. This news spread so fast in Europe when other sailors emulated the habit and started to practice the same in their countries. When Cuba finally became a colony of Spain, the habit was cemented. This happened around the year 1492 and from that time tobacco smoking has never been taken aback.
With continued use of tobacco, Europeans realized that Cuban tobacco was of a superior quality and so dropped their own in favor of the Cuban brand. Before that, only sailors carried with them small packs of Cuban leaves for their enjoyment through the journey. However, when it became clear that Cuban cigar was taking over Europe and so they started importing tobacco seeds of the habano type. With this, commercialization of tobacco farming started in Europe and soon to the Americas.
The term cigar was developed from an ancient Mayan language for smoking termed sikar which is cigarro in Spanish. There were several other variations of this word but they were not to be used until several centuries later when it became a common name for tobacco made in a similar form. Tobacco was produced in large quantities in Cuba and exported in total to Europe but processing did not take off until the early nineteenth century.
