JRE Tobacco Co. has added two cigars to the Aladino Vintage Selection, a brand that until recently only had one size. The new smokes, Toro and Elegante, began shipping earlier this month, joining the existing Rothschild.

Elegante

Covered in a Cuban-seed Criollo wrapper from Honduras, the Aladino Vintage Selection was created last year by JRE to fill a gap in the Aladino portfolio, which already had other popular wrapper varietals such as Connecticut, Cameroon and Corojo. The rest of the Vintage Selection blend consists of Corojo leaf. All the tobacco was grown on the JRE family farms in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras. According to the company, the tobaccos have been aged three to five years.

Elegante

The Toro measures 6 inches by 50 ring gauge with a suggested retail price of $8.80, while the 7 by 38 Elegante retails for $8. Both cigars come in boxes of 20. These new cigars are produced at the Fabrica de Puros Aladino S.A. factory in Honduras and bring the Aladino Vintage Selection up to three sizes.
