Piloto Cubano is a tobacco variety that originated in the town of Piloto, in the Pinar del Rio region of Cuba. While the secret route that the seeds took from Cuba to the Dominican Republic is still a debated mystery, the variety in general has truly become a Dominican variety.
Regardless, during a recent trip to the DR by Whole Leaf Tobacco’s Don Carey to discover top Dominican varieties, a source for a strain identical to the original Piloto Cubano leaf was located.
We are proud to make this tobacco available to you now. This tobacco is grown in the Cibao Valley where some of the richest soil in the Dominican Republic is found.
