El Baton was introduced in 1914 and became a popular pick at the time because it cost only a measly nickel per piece. Originally rolled with Cuban tobacco leaves, the El Baton is famously known as the original nickel stick.
This unique cigar brand is made by J.C. Newman Cigar Company, which was established in 1895 and is the oldest family-owned premium cigar maker in the United States. El Baton cigars are one of the original historic brands from the company.
The full-bodied blend is a Nicaraguan puro and offers a bold, hearty smoke that will appeal to cigar aficionados who will appreciate a cigar’s full flavor and strength. The El Baton features generous notes of nuts, coffee, spice, raisins, and sweetness.
While this famous brand was off the market for a bit, it was reissued in 2010. Since its return, the El Baton cigar has made an astonishing comeback; it has a 93-rating, and is listed as a Top 25 Cigar. The El Baton is a cigar you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
