The first batch of the Aladino Cameroon is beginning to arrive at some stores.
It’s a new line centered around a Cameroon-seed wrapper that the Eiroas have grown at the family’s farms in Honduras. Underneath are corojo tobaccos from Honduras.
JRE Tobacco Co. is launching the new line in three sizes:
- Aladino Cameroon Robusto (5 x 50) — $8.80 (Box of 24, $211.20)
- Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale (6 x 43) — $7.80 (Box of 24, $187.20)
- Aladino Cameroon Super Toro (6 x 52) — $9.80 (Box of 24, $235.20)
As it has done with many previous releases, JRE planned to soft launch the cigar prior to a national release at the now-canceled PCA Convention & Trade Show, originally scheduled for July 11-14. Justo Eiroa of JRE told halfwheel that the company plans to ship a second batch in June.
