While many traditional cigar brands were introducing heavier, more full-bodied cigars to appeal to long-time cigar smokers, Helix Cigars were introduced in 2002 as a counterpoint to these brands. Helix Cigars offer a mild, yet flavorful blend that appeals to the many cigar smokers who still prefer a smooth, easy-smoking cigar. Each Helix cigar is crafted by hand with the finest Connecticut Shade wrapper tobaccos, renowned for their mild, but distinctively flavorful character, a select binder grown in the Rich St.Andrés Tuxtla Valley of Mexico and a flavorful blend of Brazilian Mata Fina, Honduran Talanga Valley and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos. The Helix brand derives its name from the spiral wrapping of the outer wrapper. When a cigar's wrapper leaf is wound around its binder and filler, it is wrapped in a spiral, starting at the foot and ending at the head, until the entire cigar is covered with the flavorful tobacco leaf. This spiraled leaf is, in fact, a helix. And that is how distinctively mild Helix Cigars got their name when they were developed by the cigar making artisans in Danli, Honduras. Introduced on the heels of its milder predecessor in the blue box, Helix Maduro was introduced later in 2002 for those who enjoy a mild cigar, but were seeking a sweeter, more flavorful experience. When you light up a Helix, you will experience a smooth, consistent flavor that is never harsh and is always satisfying. No matter what time of day you smoke one.
"Subtle size & color. Does not try to overwelm you before you light up. Good taste entire length."

"The wrapper definitely catches the eye. Nice cool burn all the way to the end. It held a good ash throughout the smoke. Nice cool smoke to last 1 1/2". This is a good cigar for new cigar smokers."
