Rolando Reyes Sr., the man behind Cuba Aliados and Puros Indios passed away last night. Reyes was born in Cuba in 1924 and left in 1971. Cuba Aliados and Puros Indios experience success during the boom.

In recent years, Reyes has introduced brands such as Cuba Aliados Miami, which is made in Miami, as opposed to Reyes’ main factory in Honduras.

Carlos E. Diez, grandson of Rolando Reyes Sr., currently oversees Reyes Family Cigars.
