1850 was the year that started the golden era of cigar making in Cuba. It is when C.E. Beck y Ca. (C.E. Beck and Company) was founded and began making some of Cuba’s finest cigars. BECK, as they were called, quickly established a following. C.E. Beck y Ca made their elite premium cigars medium-bodied and with an extremely flavorful, almost buttery taste. The taste was a result of careful curing and aging of every tobacco leaf used for the cigar. From royalty to aristocrats, BECK became the cigars of choice. Each cigar was totally made by hand and a work of art. Cigar connoisseurs can again enjoy those great and flavorful cigars that C.E. Beck y Ca made famous in Cuba years ago.
