This year is the 25th anniversary of Maya Selva Cigars – a true milestone in our history of providing aficionados around the world with a great smoking experience. We kicked off our year-long schedule of festivities right where it all started, the city of Danlí in Honduras. The event was an opportunity to thank the hundreds of employees involved hand crafting our cigars, as well as the local distributers and aficionados of our brands.
The daring effort launched 25 years ago by Maya Selva brought Honduran cigars to the European market, which until now, had been dominated by Cuban cigars.
Maya Selva, daughter of a French mother and a Honduran father, originally studied at the Ecole Internationale des Sciences du Traitement de l'Information - School of Engineering (EISTI), and obtained her master’s in science in the United States. If there is one thing she is known for, it’s the enormous efforts she has made to break through the masculine hegemony of the tobacco world, with cigars that are among the best quality and the most enjoyed.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – At the recent TPE show, Maya Selva Cigars introduced a new sampler pack for the Villa Zamorano Reserva collection.
Designed to look like a beer or soda can, the sampler contains 5 cigars – Expreso, Robusto, El Gordo, N°15 and the NEW Soberano. The handy container can also be used as a travel humidor, fits perfectly in the mug holder of the car and its cap turns into an ashtray. Last year aficionados from around the word gave the VZ Reserva Collection Cigar Journal’s Best Value Award 2019.
Officially launched during the latest TPE show, the NEW VZ RESERVA SOBERANO is hand-rolled with premium tobacco, staying true to its blend collection. After the successful debut of the classic Villa Zamorano Soberano at Intertabac last year, Maya Selva decided to add this increasingly popular cigar size - 6 x 60 - to the Reserva Collection. Aficionados will enjoy the bold yet creamy taste of this SOBERANO, which encompasses earthy and cedar aromas with hints of coffee. This RESERVA collection blend features a Jamastrán wrapper from Maya Selva Cigars' own farm, Santa Eulalia. The binder and fillers are blended from a selection of the best tobaccos of Honduras.
