Crowds come into our main Miami Mega Store daily to pick up some freshly made Medina 1959 Miami Edition Cañon cigars. The cigars don't have a cigar band but their construction and taste is clearly Cuban. These cigars are only available in the Miami Mega Store and this size is the most recent created. The word has spread quickly about these wonderful cigars and many are calling and asking if they can get these same cigars online. Well now you can. These are the freshly handmade cigars from the Cuban Crafters Miami Cigar Factory.
They are hand made at the Cuban Crafters Miami cigar factory by one of the world's most talented Cuban cigar roller. 1959 Miami Edition Cañon cigars have that special and elegant taste that only pre-1959 Cuban cigars had. That's because they are made under the watchful eye of Manuel Medina, a legend in the history of Cuban cigars. From the dry Cuban-seed tobacco bunching to the precise blending of different tobacco leaves, this cigar yells quality and elegance. While it's beautiful to look it, it's even better to smoke.
The medium bodied smoke is filled with delightful tastes of toasted nuts, mild spices and smooth waves of butterscotch with sweet malt cream that coats your mouth and keeps you hoping it never ends. They can only be compared to the pre-Castro Cuban cigars that magically grabbed your attention at the start and kept you satisfied until the very end. The Cuban-seed Habano long-filler and binder are aged for 6 years and the super-premium Cuban-seed wrapper is aged for at least 5 years.
This combination of tobacco was blended by Manuel Medina to match the exact taste that he remembers when he first started rolling cigars in Cuba. Each Cañon cigar is now 6 inches long with a large ring gauge of 58.
1959 was a year of luxurious self-indulgence, romance and when Fidel Castro changed the course of history in Cuba. It was also when Medina started rolling cigars. He eventually became one of the most celebrated Master Rollers in Cuba. Manuel Medina played a formidable role in Cuba's cigar history. He started as a roller at the H. Upmann factory in Cuba. His talents were quickly recognized and he eventually became the factory's Master Cigar Maker, overseeing hundreds of master cigar rollers. He was then promoted and became the Master Cigar Maker in Cuba's Davidoff factory.
His talents were showcased throughout Europe, leading him to travel extensively. During one of those trips, he decided to seek freedom instead of success. Medina made Miami, Florida his new home. He is now in charge of cigar production at Cuban Crafters' Miami factory. Some of the Master Rollers who make the Medina 1959 Miami Edition cigars even worked for him in Cuba.
Medina 1959 Miami Edition re-creates the pre-Castro Cuban cigars, when Cubans were considered the best in the world. These cigars are unquestionably captivating. Each one is hand made by a decorated Cuban born roller in Miami. These Medina 1959 Miami Edition Cañon Cigars are hand made by Dagoberto Gonzalez. They exemplify the talents and skills of this life-long cigar maker.
He has been rolling cigars for over 45 years and is a true Cañon cigar expert. It's one of the sizes he prefers to roll, and smoke. Dagoberto started working at Cuban Crafters upon his arrival from Cuba. Together with Medina, he continues to make cigars with magical qualities.

One of my favorite Cuban Crafters cigars. Caramel taste, smooth, always excellent construction. I was given one of these the first day I went to the Miami store years ago, the great Henri Berger was there, met him and spoke to him, what a nice guy (RIP Henry). I spent many an hour since then watching the torcedores roll these, and had the privilege of sitting on the leather couches in the back hearing Henri talk about his family's flight from Naziism in Europe to Cuba and Henri's subsequent cigar business ventures in Esteli. Truly a great and generous man, he will be missed. I'm happy to see the business and the quality of product lives on."
