Honduran cigarmaker and leaf grower JRE Tobacco Co. is expanding its Aladino brand with a new, regular-production line of Honduran puros called Aladino Classic. 

 A small allotment of the new cigars are shipping in mid-May to a few select retailers who have visited the company’s family-owned farms in the past, but most will have to wait until the PCA trade show this July to place orders.

Made at the Fabrica de Puros Aladino S.A. factory, all of the tobaccos used are grown in Honduras by JRE Tobacco on farms in the Jamastran Valley owned by the Eiroa family. The wrapper and fillers are Habano seed, while the binder is Corojo. According to Justo Eiroa, who founded JRE Tobacco with his father Julio, the cigars are medium in strength.

Aladino

Aladino Classic will be available in four sizes: Corona Classic, measuring 5 inches by 44 ring gauge ($7); Robusto, 5 by 50 ($9); Toro, 6 by 50 ($10); and a 6 1/2-by-60 Gordo ($11).

The boxes are still being finished but the company told Cigar Aficionado that they will have a red and gold color scheme with the same art on the inner lid as the other Aladino lines. All sizes of Aladino Classic will come in boxes of 20.

Retailers who order Aladino Classic at the PCA trade show are expected to receive shipments of the cigars that same week.
