The Face of America



John Adams (The actual name of the founder) founded the Liberty Cigar Company with one mission in mind — to tell America’s magnificen­t story. A story that we hope you will savor as richly as you do our cigar themselves.

“It is our hope that as the blue smoke billows about you, whether in solitude or among friends and family, you might give a moment’s pause to think about how truly extraordin­ary it is that all those who came before us risked everything to make us free.”

“Liberty cigars homage to the great people in our history by way of a hand-crafted, customblen­ded premium cigar. We have started at the beginning of America’s history and will eventually make our way through all of our illustriou­s past. Presently, we have 54 dif erent cigars with more on the way.”

“Each of our cigar’s have been created to match the personalit­ies of those whom we have honored. We began by studying their lives and ascertaini­ng their salient traits, with physical and mental - in short their persona.”

George Washington, for instance, was larger than life, which is why we gave him such a big bold cigar. His vital is a presedenté. Fitting for sure as he was the first president and created the standard for all others to follow.

Washington as a very young man was forged in the heat of battle. This literal trial by fire instilled in him the courageous and unassailab­le character which would prove indispensa­ble to the budding American Republic.

The Nicaraguan Maduro Ligero leaf wrapper of the Washington is harvested from the top four or five rows of the tobacco plant which receive 150% more direct light than the rest of the plant.f These upper leaves which draw their nutrients from the rich, jet black, volcanic soil, bask in the intense Central American sunlight, infusing in them a bold and rugged character.

We chose this particular Ligero leaf wrapper as George Washington, like the leaf, was always to be found in the searing spotlight. It perfectly represents his willingnes­s to take on the intense, relentless heat which accompanie­d America’s herculean fight for liberty.

The Connecticu­t Broadleaf binder, also a sun drenched tobacco, produces a rich, complex, muscular flavor. It imparts such rugged flavors as leather, earth and steel. These flavor profiles remind one of the very essence of a soldier at war.

Who better represents the spirit of liberty than the Founding Fathers.

We have crafted the cigar blends to match the spirit of each of 13 founder’s.

There were, of course, many more than thirteen paternal patriots (and maternal ones, for that matter) but we pared them down to thirteen for economy, for sure, but mainly for the powerful symbolism which accompany’s that auspicious number —- The 13 colonies in rebellion against the mother country (there are 13 cigars to a box as well).

Choosing which thirteen founder’s made the cut was dif cult but the principle criterion was this; that each founder was, at one time or another, more or less indispensa­ble to securing our liberty.

George Washington was undoubtedl­y the only one for which there can be no argument. But without the more obscure Robert Morris, for instance, the financing of the Revolution would almost certainly not have happened.

John Adams, to use Thomas Jef erson’s words, was the “Colossus of Independen­ce.” Jef erson himself, of course, wrote one of the most important documents on liberty in the history of humankind.

These, along with Franklin and Madison, you know well. But we have included lesser known patriots like James Otis and the “Swamp Fox” with the hope that you will find them as compelling as we do.

But if our arguments, as to each of the founder’s inclusion, don’t sway you. No worries. All thirteen of the cigars we have created in their name are like the cause of liberty — well worth it.
