The Cuba Aliados line is Honduran-made and produced by the JR Cigar Company. JR Cigar is a leading distributor and retailer of premium cigars. Its retail operations (which account for more than half of revenues) include six specialty cigar stores, three discount outlet stores (all in North Carolina), and a direct-mail catalog. JR is largely owned by the founding Rothman family and known for the flamboyant and outspoken personality of owner Lew Rothman and his highly entertaining catalogue editorials. (Note article this month on Rothman publicly exposing anti-tobacco crusader Congressman Henry Waxman as a cheap hypocrite who doesn’t pay his bills on time!) The Cuba Aliados brand is one of the better produced by JR in our panel’s opinion. We found each sample featured to be extremely well-constructed and packed with flavor. You’re in for a full-bodied experience! Enjoy!
We found Cuba Aliados’ Toro Deluxe to an expertly constructed, very flavorful cigar. Look for a near perfect draw in this rich, oily, full-bodied experience. Note a spicy, rich aroma that follows a nutty, slightly spicy flavor. A fine long white ash indicates the tobacco to be aged properly. We smoke this one all the way down as far as humanly possible without inhaling the entire butt! Overall, tons of smoke, big flavor and completely satisfying. You should also note the re-order box pricing on this cigar is a cheap as you’ll find it anywhere, even directly through JR! Consider pairing this smoke with a full-bodied, dry, roasted Stout.
