president and vice president of U.S. Cigar Sales, Larry Palombo and Daniel H. Elrod, created Helix to be an affordable Connecticut cigar.
Helix stands out against its counterparts. Most young cigar brands are made to fulfill the demand of the market for strong full-bodied cigars. Meanwhile, Helix is on the milder end of the strength spectrum and has sweet notes of cinnamon and spice.
U.S. Cigar Inc. invested in the Talanga Valley in Honduras. It is an extremely poor and undeveloped area of a third world country and has rich fertile soil. Needless to say, the changes U.S. Cigar Inc. was making drew a lot of attention to the company. In 2004, General Cigar Company acquired the Tampa-based company, its brands, factories, and farm.
Helix cigars continue to be handmade in Honduras. The delectable filler blend of Helix cigars consists of Brazilian, Dominican, Honduran, and Mexican tobacco. A smooth Connecticut-shade Broadleaf wrapper completes the flavorful blend of Helix cigars.
The success of Helix cigars goes completely against market predictions. Even major cigar publications have jumped on board with Helix cigars. Cigar Aficionado has given Helix Maduro XP a 90 rating.
A Helix cigar is a great way to reminisce the days before the cigar industry boom in 1990’s when the industry still favored mild cigars. Helix cigars are a refreshing adaptation of what traditional gentlemen desired. Get a great deal on Helix cigars at Mike’s Cigars.
