Maker White Owl

Maker Details White Owls are American-made, machine produced cigars. White Owl cigars are inexpensive, costing around an average of $1.50. The logo consists of a Snowy owl perched on a cigar. White Owl is a cigar first produced in 1887. White Owl cigars are machine made in Dothan, Alabama, U.S.A.[dubious discuss] with a sheet-type wrapper and binder that encases a mixed filler tobacco blend from five nations. As of 2011, White Owl cigars imported into Australia are produced in the Dominican Republic, under the direction of an Owensboro, Kentucky, U.S.A. company.
