Handmade by famed cigar maker Rolando Reyes, Sr. at the Puros Indios factory in Honduras, Cuba Aliados is a flavorful medium-bodied blend that’s earned 90 points from Cigar Aficionado. The fillers consist of Cuban-seed Dominican, Brazilian, and Nicaraguan tobaccos all hugged by an Ecuadorian binder and wrapped by a Nicaraguan Maduro leaf. Note the appearance of the cigar is just a tad on the rustic side, but also note that it’s well made—Rolando Reyes cigars are always well-rolled. You can count on a great draw, a nice even burn and a smooth and balanced flavorful experience, in this case with notes of earth, spices, pepper, cedar and a toasty, semi-sweet finish. Your Cuba Aliados will hold a long and impressive looking ash and there should be no need for relights or even touch-ups throughout the duration of this 45 to 50 minute smoke. Enjoy this one with a breakfast blend coffee, a malty red ale or, if a cocktail is more your style, a mojito.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
