JRE Tobacco Co.’s Aladino brand will receive a new line of cigars this month, as the company announced the Aladino Classic, a Honduran puro made from company-grown tobacco.

The mix would feature a wrapper and a filler of habano seeds, while the binder will be a corojo seed. It is manufactured at Fabrica de Puros Aladino SA in Honduras and will be offered in four sizes:

  • Aladino Classic Corona Classic (5×44) – $7 (box of 20, $140)
  • Aladino Classic Robusto (5 x 50) – $9 (Box of 20, $180)
  • Aladino Classic Toro (6 x 50) – $10 (Box of 20, $200)
  • Aladino Classic Gordo (6 1/2 x 60) – $11 (Box of 20, $220)

The first batch of cigars will be distributed in mid-May to a small group of retailers who have visited the company’s farms and facilities. It will then be made available to other retailers at the PCA Convention & Trade Show in July, with those stores receiving their orders shortly after the show closes.

The company announced the Aladino Classic via cigar loverbut has yet to respond to an email requesting additional information and confirming the accuracy of this report.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – each cigar you light is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggles and stories. For me it’s more than the cigar – it’s the story behind it, the experience of appreciating the work of artisans and how a great cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with the half-wheel, I am the PA announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as the Salt River Rafters of the League. Fall of Arizona, the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I’m a voice-over artist. Previously, I covered the Phoenix and National cigar scene for Examiner.com, and served as an editor for cigar snob magazine.
