(Miami, Florida) June 19, 2014— M.G.M. Cigars proudly announces the return of the Buena Vista Cigar brand of premium cigars to the United States. In 2011 Buena Vista Cigars made a brief appearance in the U.S. scene with tons of internet buzz and rave reviews from cigar media. M.G.M. Cigars has now brought back to the U.S. public the “Worlds fines Cuban seed cigar”-Buena Vista Cigars.
The genesis of MGM Cigar can be traced to Cuba and the year 2009. At the time, the notion of crafting a Premium Cigar with the highest quality in every aspect of its creation, without any of the restrictions imposed by the island upon the product and its processes, gained support and backing. This support was from a group of very experienced cigar makers.
In 2011 Buena Vista Cigars was released with a sizable amount of industry hype do superb cigar construction, one of kind luxury presentation and packaging, and most importantly, the quality of the cigar itself. The Buena Vista Prominente received a 94 Rating in Smoke Magazine with one of the panelists simply stating: “The one word that comes to mind is Awesome.” The Buena Vista Robusto was featured in Cigar Journal in the article “60 Cigars that you should try.”
Circumstances beyond the manufacturer’s control hindered the project’s development and successful advancement. The entire production of 200,000 cigars was stored in temperature and humidity-controlled cedar conditioning rooms, until 2013. At that point, José E. Borges Batista, founding partner and current President of MGM Cigar, arrived to the United States (after a prolonged wait) bringing with him dreams of freedom, prosperity, and his irrevocable mission of pressing ahead with the MGM Cigar project.
José E. Borges said: “The M.GM. Cigar project and first brand Buena Vista cigar was nothing more than a dream in 2009. It quickly caught flight, only to be put to bed for a short while. I am thankful to have relocated to the United States where I am free to forge ahead with our project. We look forward to re-introducing the Buena Vista Cigar brand which pays homage to all who, through music and from one generation to another, have kept the Cuban traditions, values and joie de vivre alive.”
Buena Vista Reserva 2008 is a well-balanced cigar of medium strength. It’s crafted by Cuban master rollers, who expertly mix a filler of select tobacco harvested in the Dominican Republic, aged two years (2008-2010) and then dress it with an elegant Habano 98 wrapper from Ecuador. These cigars have rested in cedar conditioning rooms for three years, surrounded by an optimal temperature and level of humidity. This process accents and balances the tobacco’s nuances, ensuring the connoisseur a uniquely pleasurable experience.
