It must start somewhere. The Torres brand was in fact created here in the heart of Texas. After opening a small tobacco shop in Austin, Texas, Alejandro Torres along with Cuban and Mexican Master blenders created a blend that had a Texas twist.
Being born in Texas and being of Latin origin and growing up in the culture and spending many moons in Little Havana, he aquired a unique palate for quality tobacco and its presentation. The endless trips to the San Andres Valley, in Veracruz Mexico where the cigar factories are a perminent land fixture just added to the justification. Relationships were formed and the rest is history. A legacy is born.
In honor of his first born son Nicolas Alejandro Torres, he has named his first creation ("Don Nicolas" a premium doble capa tobacco).
