Latitude Zero New

Who is one of the largest tobacco growers in the world for over 80 years? The original grower and creator of Habano Ecuador wrappers? The tobacco supplier for ultra-premium handmades like Davidoff, Ashton VSG, Montecristo, and many more? The answer to this riddle is probably one you don’t yet know, but one you should, and one you soon will. The answer: Oliva Tobacco Company. At hand though is an impressive new boutique brand, crafted only with the top 1% of all their tobaccos by a true master in the cigar industry, Raul Disla. These tobaccos were secured exclusively by NACSA, one of Nicaragua's top factories, Raul worked his magic, and Latitude Zero was born. 


​Latitude Zero takes its name from Ecuador, an homage to their supplier Oliva Tobacco Company’s major growing area and the origin of the gorgeous wrapper leaf gracing their new premium brand. A Habano Ecuador wrapper, easily the finest I’ve ever seen, shelters inside of itself a bold cocktail of Nicaraguan long-fillers all from a farm in Esteli'. This combination promotes a powerful, heady profile that’s layered with complex nuances of nuts, pepper, oak, cream, and caramel. Elegant, extremely well-balanced, and brimming with flavor, Latitude Zero showcases the difference that truly premium tobacco makes.

Bought a five pack because of a review by kohnhed and after letting it marinate in the humidor for a couple months, decided to check them out. I've got the torpedo version and it's "Full speed ahead!" tasty. There's a pleasant sweetness to this stick, well constructed and it stays lit. With the additional $20 bucks off for a box, I just had to purchase one. Way to go CI. The only thing I wish is the next time you have a special, let me know. I found out about this through sheer luck!
RW of SAN RAFAEL, CA
Definitely not a smooth cigar. Very peppery and spicey to the point of overwhelming to me. I would not recommend this cigar to anyone less than full flavor preference. I tend to lean the wards full flavor. I will let them rest 6 months or so and see what they bring then.
RC of waupun, WI
I have to say after all the hype I thought it would be a better cigar. I just received these Robustos and decided to try one. I was not very impressed. That cigar I had tasted like it had a bite through the whole thing and it ran uncontrollably; the burn was terrible. I'll try the Experimentals with hopes that they are better. I would not recommend these at this price.
MB of TOLEDO, OH
I bought some of these on a whim....These vitolas are flavorful with a creamy aftertaste. Consistent burn and flavor throughout, and very well made. Not a complex smoke, which is okay with me. It's definitely one you can sit back and enjoy with a Scotch and thoroughly enjoy the next 90 mins. I've bought two boxes since my first five pack was smoked too fast. It's brother, the Experimental, is another great smoke, but a little fuller with a more earthy taste. You definitely can't go wrong with these sticks. Obviously, they both are a permanent part of my collection. Congrats OTC.... Definitely a winner! And thanks CI for stocking them.

WOW! is right, nice tight burn, superb flavor, and a tasty toothy wrapper. Must mention the nice mellow tobacco buzz. WOW! I will be smoking more.
JW of Daphne, AL
I bought a box of these because I like Habano wrapped and Nicaragua filler cigars and because of C.I.'s description of them. Also, they are pretty reasonably priced. I smoked a couple shortly after receiving them and thought they were ok but nothing really special. Another cigar with a fancy box and over-the-top band, right? However, after resting in one of my humidors for more than three months these once "ok" cigars have transformed into a very flavorful, smooth, and complex smoking experience. Huh, everything C.I.'s description said they are! I guess it just goes to show you that you shouldn't be too quick to judge something. I'm looking forward to enjoying Latitude Zero as long as they make them. Thanks, C.I. for turning me on to them. You're the best!!!
TS of Elkhart, IN
Got a 5er of the Toro Gordo Latitude Zeros and let one acclimate in the humi for a week or so before I smoked it. Started out medium with a creamy texture and a nice sweet but not too sweet finish. Wonderful flavors of Nicaraguan tobacco reminding me of a good Fuente. Cigar took all of 2 hours to get to the nub and I still didn't want it to end. Pepper came in midway through the 2nd third and built to a tangy ending. The next few will rest for a few months to see how they age but I'll definitely be getting a box.

I was given one of these Latitude Zero cigars for my birthday and I must say that I was surprised at its quality. Many times, when you get a "gift" of a cigar that you don't recognize, it's not much, but this one is an exception. The nutty, creamy, caramel flavors were there, as advertised, the construction was dead on and the burn was perfect. The wrapper is a thing of beauty. For a cigar in its price range, it is remarkably good. I'm pretty sure that I'll get some for myself. Then, I'll be able to give a gift to someone that won't sit in their humidor for years on end.

I smoked the robusto vitola last night. It was an enjoyable cigar. The wrapper is so incredibly silky that I couldn't stop fondling the cigar. I'm not a guy that can pick out each individual flavor that comes across my palate but I did catch some nice flavors throughout the stick. I would say that this is a mild-medium bodied cigar with a mild-medium flavor profile. There is some black pepper around the half way point but definitely not a pepper bomb. I can't say that I was blown away by this stick but I can see keeping some in the humi. It's well worth the price of a 5-pack. I bought the sampler and got one of the experimental sticks as well but have not smoked it yet.
BD of Tomball, TX
I like this cigar, it is well balanced. You get the same flavor from beginning to end with nice tones, particularly in the fine Nicaraguan tobaccos, spice and wood tones. It had a nice burn most of the time which show good aging of the tobaccos as well as the cigar after it was made. Professional construction, definitely not the overrated bundle cigars with fancy labels. The label was to big for me but the overall cigar was a great smoke. I will recommend it to my friends.
YM of Tampa, FL
I was smoking the ‘zero latitude’ last night and I thought this cigar is okay but this is not like any Oliva cigar that I have had, which is a brand I enjoy. So I was curious. There is the “Oliva Cigar Company” which is apparently different from Oliva Tobacco Co. The family-owned Tabacalera Oliva Tabolisa, known in the United States as the “Oliva Cigar Co.”, traces its roots back to Melanio Oliva, who first began to produce tobacco in Pinar del Rio, Cuba in 1886. They make the cigars I like. The Oliva Tobacco Company is run by John E. Oliva, out of Tampa, FL. They are tobacco growers founded in Cuba during the 1920s. Not the same guys.

Beautiful packaging, great draw, great taste! The freebie experimentals may be even better.
DS of ROANOKE, VA
Just received my first box of torpedoes. After smoking several these new cigars over the course of the weekend, I'll say one thing, WOW! This cigar is well constructed and packed with all the characteristics and flavors of fine, well aged tobaccos. Great burn and consistency. This cigar may just be my next go to stick. Thanks CI.
JD of TAMPA, FL
A nice cigar with an interesting combination of taste.

A Best Kept Secret

Joey J.

Cigar brands come and go. 

Whether it’s due to a lack of quality tobaccos, changes in production requirements, a necessary re-branding, or a blend just being underappreciated, there’s an ebb and flow to the availability of many premium cigars. 

And typically in this tale as old as time, you’ll hear the same marketing refrain – new look, same blend! Or: “the classic you love with a new, contemporary band.” “A phoenix risen from the ashes”, “the prodigal son returns”, etc. Inevitably those cigars will return to the same level of sales they had before, and the “New Coke” vs. “Coca-Cola Classic” cycle will spin on. 

Today, we’ve got something a little different for you. The keen-eyed out there might recognize the Latitude Zero name as one that’s been around these parts before. However, this ain’t no “same blend, new look” story. 

Latitude Zero is all new. New look, new blend, new everything. And it’s good. Scratch that — it’s damn good. 

So what’s the deal? I’m glad you asked. 

Latitude Zero is rolled at NACSA, a little-known factory in Esteli, Nicaragua that has been secretly behind the scenes of some of your favorite cigars for decades. Seriously. You see, NACSA is the manufacturing arm of the Oliva Tobacco Family (not to be confused with Oliva Cigars, a different company that makes the ‘Oliva’ branded items like Serie V or Melanio). And the Oliva Tobacco Family is arguably the most prestigious and important grower of tobacco in the cigar industry today. If you’ve ever had a cigar with Ecuadorian leaf, chances are they grew it. In fact, Oliva Tobacco sells to Drew Estate, Arturo Fuente, Rocky Patel, Nick Perdomo, Don Pepin Garcia, and many more. Long and short: if you’ve tried more than a couple cigars in your day, chances are you’ve enjoyed the fruits of their labor.

Anyway, back to NACSA. Short for “Nicaraguan American Cigars, S.A”, this factory has access to all the premium leaves that Oliva Tobacco grows, and produces cigars for some truly prestigious clientele. Perhaps most famously, they make many of Steve Saka & Dunbarton’s current products, like Mi Querida and the Muestra de Saka Unstolen Valor. In fact, one rumor goes that NACSA was the factory that first figured out the fermentation technique used on Drew Estate’s Liga Privada No. 9 — but that’s neither here nor there. 

Besides the tobacco, NACSA has another secret weapon at their disposal. Raul Disla. Raul is the Production Manager at NACSA, and oversees all 65,000 cigars they roll per day. In addition to his attention to detail and strict quality control, Raul is a master blender in his own right, helping cigar makers who use NACSA pick the perfect tobacco for their products. Keep that name in the back of your head — I guarantee you’re going to hear it more and more in the next few years.

So that’s the pedigree with Latitude Zero. Blended by Raul Disla, at the industry’s best-kept-secret cigar factory, with tobaccos from the most renowned growers in the world. Interested? 

You should be, because this baby delivers in every way imaginable. Before you even get into the cigars themselves, just look at the gorgeous presentation on this brand. Open the simple, yet elegant, box and a detailed, hand drawn world map with beautifully embellished compasses and flourishes greets you. The small touches here are top-notch: the compass on the band is made up of tobacco leaves, and the cloth foot ribbon brings a level of polish to the whole affair. It’s a real looker.

On paper, this blend is not unique. But don’t let that fool you. An Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf sits atop Nicaraguan binder and long-filler. What is special about this one though is the quality and hue of that wrapper. I mean, just look at it! Dark, oily, and rich – in a blind test, I’d peg this as Broadleaf before I’d say Habano. That just shows you how masterful NACSA’s fermentation technique is. A lesser factory would never be able to get this color and performance out of their materials.

But now, the piece de resistance – the flavor. Lighting up Latitude Zero, I was instantly reminded of old school Liga Privada. Truly, this blend is reminiscent of the types of cigars that got me into this industry in the first place. It’s full-bodied but the flavor is shockingly smooth. For how dark the wrapper on this cigar is, you barely get any spice. Instead, sweet caramel leads the charge, with rich, dark chocolate joining shortly after. The cigar remains enjoyable to the end, with roasted nuts and a bit of dry cocoa flitting in and out throughout the back half. 

And the price. Come on! I kid you not, this cigar is worth easily double, maybe even triple the price. 

The recommendation here is easy folks — get yourself a box of Latitude Zero, use the money you save to grab a nice bottle of bourbon and a thick steak, and clear your weekend plans. You’re not going to want to leave the house as long as you have a couple of these around to enjoy.
