Corojo '97

The Corojo '97 is the final cigar of the trifecta of double binder sticks from Cusano. Created for more experienced smokers, the medium to full-bodied Corojo '97 was released in 2004.

The highlight of the cigar is its Ecuadorian Cuban Seed Corojo wrapper taken from a 1997 harvest. Just beneath the special wrapper is a Mexican Sumatra binder and a Dominican filler. If you are looking for a cigar to enjoy after a hearty meal, the Corojo '97 is it. Look for notes of earth, spice, and cedar. Cusano offers the Corojo '97 in four sizes: 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 50 Toro, 6 x 52 Torpedo, and 7 x 50 Churchill.

LXI Habano Sun Grown


The LXI Habano Sun Grown marked a departure from the norm for Cusano. While the brand has plenty of smoother cigars on the market, the release of the LXI finally gave Cusano the ability to say that it had a full-bodied smoke under its wing. The LXI moniker is used as it is the equivalent of 61 in Roman numerals. 1961 just happens to be the year in which Mike Chiusano was born.

The LXI Habano Sun Grown features a Dominican filler and binder, plus a hybrid wrapper combination made from an Ecuadorian Habano and a Dominican Sun Grown leaf. Coffee, pepper, sweetness, and earth are some of the flavors you can expect when smoking the LXI. The LXI Habano Sun Grown comes in four different sizes.

59 Rare Cameroon

The 59 Rare Cameroon is the second smoke from Cusano to feature a double wrapper. The number 59 in the cigar's name stands for 1959, the year in which co-founder Joe Chiusano was born.

Full-bodied and complex, the 59 Rare Cameroon has a Dominican filler which also incorporates a wrapper leaf. The binder is Dominican as well, and the wrapper is African Cameroon. Cusano produces the 59 Rare Cameroon in four different sizes.

Cuvee Blanc

The Cuvee Blanc line has received some very high ratings from respected cigar publications. The line was introduced in 2008 as a super premium cigar packed with plenty of flavor. Aimed at fans of smooth, mild cigars and falling into the medium-bodied category of strength, the Cuvee Blanc is said to be creamy and offer some nuttiness.

The cigar has a filler made up of a blend of Dominican San Vicente Seco and Piloto Cubano tobacco. The binder is Dominican Visus Dominicana. Finishing off the composition is an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. The Cuvee Blanc comes in the following formats: 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 54 Toro Gordo, 7 x 50 Churchill, and 7 1/4 x 57 Salomon.
