Backwoods Purple Cigars (Honey Berry) – the story of Backwoods
Backwoods cigars were introduced nationally in 1981 and were an overnight success. The all-natural tobacco inside of the Backwood comes from the Dominican Republic, and the genuine all-natural Connecticut broadleaf wrapper is aged for 12 months, which allows for the natural sweetness to emerge to its surface before the addition of any flavors.
Their unique structure and look, wild and mild as it was called, with a frayed end, tapered body and unfinished head, had great appeal. Smokers identified the cigar’s image with the cowboy smoke from America’s wild west.
The rustically designed airtight foil pouch, added to that look and, importantly maintained the cigar’s high moisture level.
These Backwoods Purple Cigars have a smooth honey & berry flavour to enhance the aroma of this number one selling cigar globally.
