Indonesian cigar specialist
Even though Indonesian cigars aren’t very well known in the world of premium cigars, they do exist. Tobacco arrived in Indonesia due to the Dutch who colonized Indonesia for more than 400 years. Sumatra and Java still have large tobacco plantations. Most of the tobacco grown for cigars goes to Europe in the shape of dry-cured short filler cigars. Yet many premium handmade cigars utilize Indonesian tobacco as well.
But Indonesia produces premium handmade cigars as well. And it’s that where Dayana focuses on. The shop does carry some Cuban cigars yet the main focus is Indonesian cigars. Not just the Dayana Cigars brand, but also other Indonesian cigars and even Indonesian pipe tobacco.
