Don Doroteo Announces Salt of the Earth for PCA 2023

June 12, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Don Doroteo announced today the launch of its highly anticipated new line, “Salt of the Earth.” The unveiling of this collection will take place at the 2023 PCA Trade Show, scheduled for July 7th-11th 2023 in Las Vegas, NV.

The “Salt of the Earth” line represents a significant milestone for Don Doroteo, as it showcases the brand’s commitment to crafting exquisite cigars that embody the essence of time-honored traditions and the unparalleled craftsmanship the company is known for. The collection will introduce two remarkable blends, each carrying its own distinct personality and character: “Piedra Viva” (Living Stone) and “Piedra Angular” (Corner Stone).

Don Doroteo is keeping most of the details of these two blends under wraps for now, building anticipation and excitement among cigar enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. The brand’s decision to maintain secrecy about the blends aims to heighten the sense of discovery and anticipation leading up to the PCA Trade Show.

The one detail being shared is, Salt of the Earth includes Andullo. Andullo is a method that imparts strength and flavor to tobacco. Andullo is created by taking cured tobacco leaves, wrapping them tightly in palm tree pods with rope, and hanging them to ferment for a period of two years. The process turns the tobacco into dark, hard logs resembling big sausages. Dominicans have smoked andullo as a pipe tobacco for more than 500 years. The Don Doroteo booth will have Andullo on display as well as some to sample.
