Laura Chavin releases virginy. A new line consisting of three vitolas. It follows the philosophy of Laura Chavin owner Willy Knopf. Medium in strength with lots of flavors is his motto.

Ancient tobacco

In order to prevent pests and rot and at the same time increase the yield, the tobacco farmers crossed the tobacco varieties as early as the century before last. This changes genetics. In the course of time the pure, ancient tobacco disappeared from the scene. Today almost all common types of tobacco are so-called hybrids, and their aromas are increasingly similar according to Knopf. 

Not so with the Carbonell family. This family has been exclusively involved in tobacco cultivation. In its refinement and the preservation of the original seed and its cultivation since 1894. The original form of the Olor Dominicano, which has been family-owned for several generations, was discovered by the great-grandfather in a special microclimate at the foot of the southern slope of the Cibao Valley. This original tobacco is found in the filler and as a binder of the three Virginy formats.
