fgpic1 Today is Puff Profile day. Up for discussion is the Felipe Gregorio brand, and we will give you some insight as to how the company grew, as well as tell you about the wide variety of cigars they have on the market.

Felipe Gregorio Cigars were founded by the man whose moniker describes them. Felipe Gregorio started the line out of his personal love for cigars, which he started smoking as a teenager while growing up in Europe. The brand was founded in 1988, after Gregorio decided to convert his passion into a career. He traveled to Honduras, where he gained valuable knowledge from the likes of veterans such as Don Jorge Buesos and Don Julio Eiroa.

The Petrus was the first line introduced by Felipe Gregorio, and it saw some success after being distributed throughout the Middle East and Europe. Gregorio eventually moved on to Nicaragua, where he set up his operations to control both the growth and manufacturing of his cigars. Over time, Gregorio continued to learn about the business and hone his skills, so much so that legendary music artist Frank Sinatra requested that he make a cigar for him in the Dominican Republic. This led Gregorio to travel there, where he would create the Sinatra line from his brand. To create the line, Gregorio established his own Tabacalera Real de Felipe Gregorio, which further helped him grow his business.

Over twenty years later, the Felipe Gregorio brand is still going strong. Many of the brand's lines have earned high praise from publications and critics, and it now has several lines to offer smoking fans. To get you up to speed on what Felipe Gregorio has to offer, let's take a look at some of their cigar lines.

Cigar Lines

Dominicana

fgdominicana

The Dominicana is one of the milder selections from Felipe Gregorio, and is made mostly from Dominican ingredients, as you would expect from its name. The filler and binder use Dominican Piloto Cubano tobacco. An Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper tops it off. The Dominicana has some notes of spice and earth, and it comes in four different sizes.

3 Tierras

The name of the 3 Tierras line translates to “three lands.” To reflect its name, the cigar uses tobacco from three different areas. Its filler is Dominican Piloto Cubano tobacco. The binder is a combination of Nicaraguan Habano 92 and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos. Meanwhile, the wrapper comes from a Brazilian Arapiraca leaf. This medium-bodied stick is packed with flavor and is unique due to the two oddly-shaped and short sizes it comes in.

Felipe

The Felipe is a medium-bodied Maduro line that is offered in just two sizes and is very smooth. The cigar's filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Piloto Cubano and Ligero tobaccos. The binder uses Nicaraguan Piloto Cubano tobacco as well, and it is topped off with a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper.
