JRE Tobacco Co is now into its second year of manning its own booth, having previously shared space within the CLE booth.

This year also saw a new booth design, anchored by four displays in each corner, and three open sides. Maybe not as open as last year’s booth, but still a nice design. While there was only a packaging update last year, this year we had two new releases.

Aladino Corojo Reserva

The first release they had was a limited production cigar, only making 400 boxes a month at their Las Lomas Factory.

  • Wrapper: Honduras (Corojo)
  • Binder: Honduras
  • Filler: Honduras


  • Aladino Corojo Reserva (5 x 50) — $12 (Boxes of 20, $240)

Production: 400 Boxes of 20 Cigars (8,000 Total Cigars)

Launch Date: August 2018

Aladino Maduro

The second release is more of a wide release than a new one. The Aladino Maduro saw a soft launch towards the end of last year, garnering a 91 in our review of the Rothschild size and making our Top 25 for 2017. If you’re wondering where the Rothschild is on the list below, it was only shipped to select JRE accounts as they decided to focus on more popular sizes for the wide release.

  • Wrapper: Mexico (San Andrés)
  • Binder: Honduras (Corojo)
  • Filler: Honduras


  • Aladino Maduro Elegante (7 x 38) — $7.50 (Boxes of 20, $150)
  • Aladino Maduro Cazador (6 x 46) — $9.50 (Boxes of 20, $190)
  • Aladino Maduro Robusto (5 x 50) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
  • Aladino Maduro Toro (6 x 50) — $11.50 (Boxes of 20, $230)

Production: Regular Production

Launch Date: November 2017

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
