Oscar Valladares

Oscar Valladares hit a walk-off homerun with his debut of Leaf by Oscar in 2012. While he is a long-time veteran of the industry, Leaf was the first cigar he produced at his new factory and was his introduction to the consumer side of the business. And what an introduction it was! Leaf took the market by storm thanks to its unusual packaging, as each finished cigar is wrapped in a rough tobacco leaf. While it was a bit gimmicky, the cigars themselves were excellent. Because of his quality cigars and the following they developed, he quickly became one of Danli, Honduras’ most prominent boutique blenders.
