De Hertogh Cigars (Formerly “Young Selection”)
In 1995 Ton Buenen started producing De Graaff cigars in ’s-Hertogenbosch, Holland, in the original Dutch style. Then came the name “De Hertogh” – cigars combining years of experience and excellent craftsmanship.
Now manufactured in Belgium, the “De Hertogh” cigars are rolled in a
traditional factory with traditional care and attention in respect of the excellence of the leaf, the consistency of the finished cigar, the refinement and sophistication of the flavour.
- filler, binder and wrapper – ensure the quality of these premium short filler cigars.
One can tell from the stable ash formation which develops
as the cigar is smoked.
Not mass-produced – the limited production has ensured that these are a cut above The big brands. From the feel you will know that there has been no “puffing” in their production – just pure, completely natural, perfectly matured tobaccos.
We first bought cigars from the De Hertogh factory under the name “Young Selection” with adhesive health warnings. But then the South African Department of Health ruled that if the health warning could be removed, no matter how impractical or with how much difficulty, without damaging the packaging, then it is not legal. After discussions with the department, we now import the cigars in bulk, and pack them in boxes printed with the warnings. This makes them compliant.
With pride, we offer them to you - “De Hertogh”.
The De Hertogh range:
The blends are carefully conceived using cigar leaf from Cuba (for spiciness), Java (for richness), Maduro Brazil (for mellowness), Sumatra (for smoothness), with often as many as 15-20 carefully selected varieties.
The sizes are slightly thicker than normal – increasing the easy draw and smooth smoking qualities.

These European cigars are “dry” cigars. In Europe they do not need to be humidified.
But during the Highveld winter and Cape summer some humidification may be necessary.
