The La Invicta brand name is owned by Hunters and Frankau who are the exclusive agents for Habanos S.A. and distribute all their Cuban cigars in the UK. The brand was created in the 1940s when, during World War II, they could not purchase Cuban cigars in US dollars. Instead Hunters and Frankau created La Invicta cigars which were made from Jamaican tobacco to keep the UK supplied during wartime. The brand has recently been resurrected and includes Honduran and Nicaraguan versions.
The La Invicta Nicaraguan Panetela Cigar is good-sized small cigar, slightly wider than their panatela or the Cuban minis. Great fro a quick 15 to 20 minute smoke. The La Invicta Nicaraguan Shorts have rich, nutty flavours, a touch of sweetness and spice and is medium rich in style.
Available here in packs of 5 cigars and also individually.
