At Taste Fine Wines we have been accredited a silver class from Hunters & Frankau since 2010. This certificate has been achieved through our thorough knowledge of Havanas and our conservation of cigars. This conservation ensures you will experience a unique product in perfect condition every time.
At present we are the only cigar specialist in Huddersfield, and we are very proud of our cigar display area/humidor where customers can see a wide variety of Habanos.
Within our cigar collection, we have premium quality singles as well as wooden gift boxes of smaller cigars and mixtures. We make regular re-orders, so if there is a favourite of yours that we do not have in-store or online then please contact us – we will surely be able to locate it for you.
Habanos quite literally means something from Havana, the capital city of Cuba – home of the cigar! The company Habanos S.A. produce all Cuban-made cigars and control the distribution of them in an effort to protect against counterfeiting. They do this by only exporting to only one company in each country. In the case of the UK, it is Hunters & Frankau.
Within Cuba, a Torcedor (highly skilled cigar roller) is a well-respected profession, one that has been refined since the first use of tobacco in cigar rolling in the 1400’s. This was introduced by Christopher Columbus and European explorers who travelled across the Caribean.
