Bob Spoden, who co-founded Bucanero in 1996, sings the praises of both Pueringer and the country's tobacco quality: "Costa Rica is known for its 'micro-environmental' conditions," he says. "There are about 250 distinct climate conditions, and some of them support some fantastic tobaccos. What we tried to accomplish was developing a range of mild to fuller-bodied cigars that would incorporate the same wrapper with different fillers. We found that the wrapper grown in Costa Rica was very flexible; you could roll a medium-bodied cigar or a strong cigar with it and it always complemented the filler tobacco. The experiment came to fruition with Bucanero's trio of new pirate-themed maduro cigars launched last year, with profiles ranging from milder (El Capitan maduro), to medium-bodied (Peg Leg), to fuller-bodied (Full Sail). The exact filler blends are a closely guarded secret, but Spoden is happy to trumpet the line's consistent element, the Costa Rican wrapper.

While Costa Rica's future as a wrapper producer and backpacker destination seems secure, its chances of returning to a position of significance in the cigar making arena remain hazy. It is largely the influence of Nicaraguan refugees, who streamed into the country during the Sandinista conflicts of the 1980s, who have brought cigar rolling expertise to the nation - and employing the skills of these rollers carries with it a price for cigar companies. "Costa Ricans saw themselves losing jobs to the refugees," Spoden explains.
