For the last few years, the Eiroa family has been working on trying to grow Cameroon-seed tobacco on its farms in Honduras. Now, it’s finally ready to share the tobacco with the world.

The company will be launching the Aladino Cameroon in April. According to Cigar Aficionado, it will be offered in three sizes to start:

  • 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)

Underneath the Cameroon-seed wrapper are corojo tobaccos grown in Honduras by the Eiroas.

As is often the case with new JRE releases, the company will send a small number of cigars to select stores next month. In July, at the annual PCA Convention & Trade Show, JRE will open up shipment to all retailers.

A representative from JRE did not reply to an email seeking comment about the new release.
