Don Abram Harris

Washington, DC ( — There is a saying that “great aspirations begin with great ideas”, which holds true for Don Abram Harris – the first African American Cigar Manufacturer in the United States. Born in the state of Maryland, Mr. Harris is an entrepreneur at heart who says he has always loved a great smoking cigar and wanted to create his own. He succeeded by introducing the Don Abram Harris Cigar line at the 76th Annual International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV, July 13-18, 2008 where they made their first impression on thousands of retailers and cigar enthusiasts of the world. All who sampled the cigars gave nothing but good reviews.

While in Puerto Rico, Don Abram met with one of Puerto Rico’s seasoned cigar veterans who had been in the cigar manufacturing business since the age of 7 years old. At the age of 18, he became production manager of his father’s company and eventually took over the business from his dad who had inherited the business from his father. We’re talking generations of experts in the industry! A friendship began and after working with experts in the field to create the various blends, great effort was put into creating the brands exclusively blended for the Don Abram Harris Cigar line.

The Don Abram Harris Cigars come in some of the most recognizable brands born from Puerto Rico’s tropical soil including the Churchill, the Maduro, the Robusto, the Torpedo & the island’s favorite, the Corona (crown) – each with its own distinct aroma and flavorful taste. These premium cigars are sold by the box and every hand-packed box contains 25 first quality premium cigars made with fresh raw materials and aged tobacco. The blend of fillers, binders and wrappers determine cigar flavor which in the cigar world is considered a fine art. These cigars can definitely be considered premium cigars and can hold their own next to any of the other high quality cigars. The 15 year old, aged tobacco boasts of refined and mellow tastes that are well worth the smoke.

The CHURCHILL: The length is 7 inches by 48-ring gauge. (Named after Winston’s trademark). Handmade with aged tobacco from the exclusive Utuado region of Puerto Rico with long fillers and binders from Brazil; they are draped by a natural Maduro, sun-grown seed wrapper from Africa. This rich dark cigar has a medium to full-bodied-taste with rich aroma and a smoke for cigar smokers who thrill on deep and complex flavors of leather, floral and earthy notes with mocha and licorice undertones.

The ROBUSTO: This medium to full-bodied cigar finishes with waves of baking spices while capturing the breezes of cocoa and roasted nuts. Its length is 5 inches by a 50-ring gauge.

The TORPEDO: An excellent choice, properly aged and matured, this full-bodied cigar has a stronger more robust blend. Made with a dark oily maduro wrapper that will satisfy even the most demanding palate. Covered with an oily Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, this cigar is full of hearty earthy flavors, combined with a mix of the finest Dominican fillers resulting in a fine quality cigar.

The CORONA: Made with a golden brown, Connecticut shade wrapper, this exclusive cigar is blended with a robust combination of aged Dominican filler and a sun ripened broadleaf maduro wrapper. It’s packed with complex flavors yet medium in strength. It’s length is 6 inches by 42-ring gauge. The open foot (the end you light) & closed head (the end smoked) is normally the tobacco wrapper leaves are state of the art craftsmanship. No matter your choice, the Don Abram Harris line of cigars are an excellent choice for both beginner cigar smokers and seasoned smokers who like to enjoy an occasional mild to medium flavored cigar.
