History

It cannot be said for a fact when tobacco was first smoked. Available evidence preserved by historians only indicates the first time it was mentioned. In the year 1492, Christopher Columbus reported that during his voyage in South America, he came across a peculiar habit practiced by Indian Cubans. He observed that they were smoking a primitive kind of tobacco made from dried leaves wrapped in palm or plantain. The natives in Spain emulated this habit and started practicing it widely during that century. Soon tobacco smoking spread to other European countries surrounding Spain. In Great Britain, they developed their own way of smoking which involved crushing the dried leaves and lighting them in specialized gadgets termed smoking pipes (quesi).
The sailors that followed soon after carried with them some tobacco leaves and seeds from Cuba to their respective countries. The seeds were planted in subsistence and tobacco used locally. Smokers in Europe realized that the Cuban tobacco superseded their own and so dropped it in favor of Cuban brand. Therefore the Cuban brand was adopted as the official tobacco brand for processing in Europe. By the year 1800 there was massive exportation of tobacco from Cuba but none was being processed locally.
In Europe, processing industries had already been established by this time. They were strictly using Cuban tobacco in all their industries because of the consumers’ specificity for this brand. Tobacco smoking was associated with some prestige especially among the ear veterans returning from the nineteenth century civil war. They smoked it stylishly after victory and the fame spread all other the victorious kingdoms. Up till today, tobacco smoking, especially those made in the form of cigars is associated with such prestige and color that it is reserved for the rich and the influential.
When we talk about the origin of the Cuban cigars as we know them today, we must unravel origin of the word cigar itself. The word originated from a Mayan word for smoking known as sikar and later translated to Spanish-Cigarro. Although this word was in use in Spain and South America, it was not until the 19th century that it became accepted worldwide as the official designation for tobacco made in this manner. Soon it found its way into the English dictionaries.
