The brand Olman Premium Cigars represents the family and especially the culture that had in Puriscal to plant tobacco for many years as reported by the same Don Olman “is a family business, I inherited the passion for tobacco from my grandparents and parents since my 5 years taught me how to plant and work the land, especially to plant tobacco, they were dedicated to the production of this crop for more than 50 years, tobacco is a tradition that was passed down from generation to generation in my family. In 1990 I was named representative of tobacco producers before the Tobacco Defense Board of Costa Rica. It was there that I began to listen to the myth of the Havanos made entirely by hand and in 1996 I traveled to Cuba to learn about the activity.
This activity impressed me so much that I dreamed of starting a factory in Costa Rica. For this I visited crops and factories in the main countries that are dedicated to this activity, that is how I related to great tobacco experts and learned each of the styles of fermentation, curing and manufacturing that are developed in each country.
In 1997 I started this company and in these years of struggle, constancy and dedication gave me the possibility to offer a pure Premium with so high quality, that it is time to go to the international market “
For the mixture we use aged tobacco from 4 months to a year in boxes of bitter cedar to concentrate the flavor and aroma of tobacco. The best tobacco leaves from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru were selected as tripe, a band from Brazil to give more flavor and layers of Havana and Connecticut planted by Don Olman in Ecuador.
