While Virginia was known early on for the quality of its tobacco, and other locales soon developed similar renown for their own brands of smoked goods, nowhere contributed to the development of the cigar as much as Cuba. While stifled by the iron fist Spain asserted over their tobacco production, cigar factories eventually developed in Cuba, particularly on the island's western end, which became world renowned for the quality of its tobacco. Because of the manual dexterity required in expertly rolling a cigar, skilled laborers were often imported to ensure the quality of their product, which to this day remain some of the most sought-after cigars on the planet.
