Cigar Review: Andalino by JRE Tobacco


Julio R. Eiroa (father of Christian) released several new cigars at this year’s IPCPR, but the one that really stands out is the Aladino. Julio is also a legend in the tobacco industry, having grown tobacco in Honduras since 1963 and being famous for his original Corojo tobacco that formed the basis for Camacho’s success. With JRE Tobacco, it is being called a “crop to shop” operation, with every step in the process from farming, production and distribution being controlled by JRE Tobacco.
