JRE Tobacco Co. has announced that it is expanding its Aladino Vintage Selection line with two new sizes.

The company is adding the Aladino Vintage Selection Elegante (7 x 38, $8) and Toro (6 x 50, $8.80). This follows up plans that were made last year when the Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild debuted and the company said more sizes in the works. The blend is a Honduran puro, though, unlike other JRE Tobacco Co.’s other items, the wrapper is habano and not the company’s signature corojo.


A spokesperson for the company didn’t respond to an email asking when the cigars were rolled. The company said the Rothschild cigars that were released last year were rolled in 2015-2016.

As JRE Tobacco Co. has done in the past, the cigars will soft launch at select retailers, namely ones that have visited the company’s farm and factory outside of Danlí, Honduras. Those retailers can expect to receive the cigars this month. For other retailers, the cigars will go on sale at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, which takes place July 10-13 in Las Vegas.
