To celebrate our 20th anniversary of being in business Jeff Borysiewicz, Owner of Corona Cigar Company and Davidoff’s Master Blenders have created a uniquely tailored cigar, which includes filler tobacco of Mr. Borysiewicz’s own Florida Sun Grown Tobacco. This very special and unique cigar hand crafted by Davidoff that commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the Corona Cigar Company and their success in the cigar industry.
"We are very proud to be working with Davidoff and there is no way better to celebrate our 20 year milestone of becoming a leader in premium cigar retailing. Our unique and exclusive Florida tobacco farm has truly allowed our company to come full circle as a premium cigar retailer as well as the world's only grower of prized Florida cigar tobacco. We are excited to be able to share with fellow aficionados this unique Davidoff cigar that is blended with our 2014 crop of heirloom Florida Sumatra seed tobacco that was grown on our farm in Clermont, Florida," says Jeff Borysiewicz, president and founder of Corona Cigar Company.

After five years of planning, trials, successes and setbacks, hard work and dedication, we are humbled and blessed to able to share with you Florida Sun Grown cigars.
For nearly 175 years, Florida had a rich and storied history of growing some of the world's finest cigar tobacco. Florida was once the second largest producer of premium cigar tobacco in America. There were thousands of acres grown just north of Tallahassee in the towns of Quincy and Havana, Florida. In fact, the reason they named the town Havana, was so that unscrupulous tobacco brokers could label Florida grown tobacco bales as being grown in Havana and sell it at a premium to unsuspecting cigar factories all across America as the more expensive, imported tobacco from Havana, Cuba.
In the 1890's, Cuba was fighting for their independence from Spain. To escape the war and the blockade on Havana harbor, some Cuban tobacco growers established large tobacco farms in Fort Mead, Florida so they could continue to supply American cigar factories with tobacco. With Florida having a very similar climate, altitude and close proximity to Cuba, their tobacco farms thrived...
For nearly two decades, Corona Nicaraguan Selection cigars have been one of our all-time best sellers. This brand was our very first exclusive, factory direct cigar that we ever introduced. The reason for the continued success of this brand has been simple...offer a premium quality, consistent, great tasting cigar at a very fair price.
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we had to do something special. So exported a few bales of our exclusive Florida Sun Grown Corojo tobacco to Casa Fernandez Cigars in Nicaragua. From there, Eduardo Fernandez and his team of Cuban cigar blenders went to work on combining just the right balance of Jalapa, Condega and Esteli Nicaraguan tobaccos with our 5th and 6th priming Florida Sun Grown ligero tobaccos. The result is a completely new, complex Cubanesque type of full flavor experience that combines the best characteristics of Cuban seed Nicaraguan and authentic Florida tobaccos.

For more than 15 years, Corona's Intensa has been a popular "go to" cigar for folks who like full flavored, fuller bodied cigars. Intensa cigars are hand made in Nicaragua in small batches by Casa Fernandez and blended by Cuban Master Blender Arsenio Ramos. Arsenio has unrestricted access to the finest tobaccos from AGANORSA, one of Nicaragua's largest tobacco growers, allowing him to have first choice of the finest tobaccos.
In 2016, we started blending our prized Florida Sun Grown Corojo tobacco into Intensa's Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo long filler blend. This combination of unique FSG tobacco paired with Nicaraguan tobacco really sets Intensa apart from all other cigars.
Intensa cigars are steeped with flavors of spice, toasted wood, earth and leather. The Nicaraguan wrapper from Jalapa has excellent physical properties, exuding quality and fine craftsmanship. Intensa is a bold cigar, perfect for the cigar connoisseur who's looking for a top quality, exclusive cigar at a very affordable price.
