If you haven’t heard of American Caribbean Cigars S.A., you’ve certainly heard of brands that have had cigars made there at some point or another, such as Toraño Family Cigar Co., Leccia and Gurkha.

The booth is shared among a few other brands that the company produces, showing off their cigars as well as the brands owned by ACC.

Bella Mundo is one of two new brands being debuted at the show. Two of the sizes are parejo shapes, while the third – pictured above – is a beautiful figurado that really catches your eye.

Brian Burt

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
