Aladino is a brand born in 2015 on the idea of Julio Eiroa, who, at the age of 77, after several decades in the tobacco sector, decided to start his own production of cigars, helped by his eldest son Justo. For this line, in particular, the filler tobaccos derive from authentic Corojo seed, while a San Andres is used for the wrapper. All cigars are sold in boxes of 20.
The Aladino Corojo Reserva Robusto in 2018 took fifth place in the Honduras Awards. Last year, the brand was recognized as the best Honduran brand (click here to read CigarsLover Magazine Winter).
Upon visual examination, it is dressed in a Maduro shaded wrapper. To the touch, it is smooth, and the filling is uniform. The cigars are slightly box-pressed.
