When we launced Marco V Cigars in 2009, we started with 3 blends and one size. Since then we built out our Classico collection, launched the Privato Jalapa Reserve Collection (a premium collection from our Nicaraguan factory), and then launched the Mont Blanc Premium House Blends. Our goal was to make the Mont Blancs the best value in the cigar industry. It worked as the Mont Blancs have one of the strongest followings and biggest fanbase.
Marco V has achieved a couple notable accomplishments thus far in 2023. After 14 years in business we just hit record sales in our distribution channel as well as our online store. From the very beginning, we set out to create a brand that would not only captivate cigar aficionados but also redefine the industry itself. With unwavering dedication to quality and complete control of the supply chain, we have seen our vision come to life, resonating with customers far and wide.
One of the reasons why I started Marco V Cigars was because of the role the cigar plays in celebrations. We talk about it here where the origins of Marco V come from Victor Vito lighting up a cigar to commemorate his passage into the United States. They mark a right of passage in many avenues in life and were/are a staple at all of our family gatherings where memories are made. This is Marco V at the core.
There is something truly special about smoking a cigar. For many, it is an experience that is truly unique, and one that is enjoyed by people all over the world. From the scent of the tobacco to the ritual of lighting up, there is something about smoking a cigar that is both calming and invigorating. But smoking a cigar is not just about lighting up and puffing away. There is a real art to it, and if you want to get the most out of your cigar, there are a few things you need to know.
The Marco V Black Sapphire uses the best tobacco in the world from a small, hidden farm in Jalapa, Nicaragua. The tobacco for the Black Sapphire is hand-selected in the curing barn by our master blender to ensure the absolute best quality smoke and flavor like no other. The Black Sapphire is a full-bodied, flat, rectangular pressed, torpedo.
Marco V is the entrepreneur, the engineer, the visionary, the late night notebook idea, the side hustler who has that extra drive and motivation to make a difference in the world. Marco V is not the rich guy who has made it but the grinder trying to get there.
We received a question on how we create the unique "Marco V" flavor that is common within our blends. The answer is in the blending of the unique tobaccos. We take a lot pride in how we create our unique blends. It all starts by using the best grade A tobacco from the best tobacco growing regions in the world.
From the seeds to the nine-foot-tall tobacco plants, every step is monitored by our Marco V's agricultural experts. Each tobacco leaf section produces a slightly different flavor, so leaves are harvested in small groups to precisely select the flavor of each part of the cigar.
After 11 years of business, March 2021 was our biggest month on record. This is a big feat based on the fact that March is a Winter month. Our reach across the country and Internationally continues to grow as people continue to find value in our 3 portfolios.
This month we are excited to fully launch our Privato collection online. The highest quality Marco V tobacco is classified as Privato. These limited cigars come from our factory in Jalapa, Nicaragua which is home to the best tobacco in the world and has soil almost identical to Cuba. Check out our collection here: Marco V Privato Collection
From the occasional cigar smoker to the everyday cigar aficionado, people across the country are recognizing what we have been saying for the last 10 years. Marco V Cigars are the best value in the industry.
This has been a word of mouth movement. No fancy sales teams, no big marketing budgets, and no expensive ads. Just high quality cigars.
Our farm in La Canela lies near the River Mao just west of Santiago. La Canela is widely known in the cigar industry to produce the highest quality tobacco in the world. Not one leaf from this farm is used in any other cigar brand. Our plot of land is monitored by mist filled mountains in a location only accessible by horseback.
The tobacco is harvested, cured, aged, and rolled into a Marco V...
