Fans of the Aladino line from JRE Tobacco Co. have a maduro version to look forward to.

Justo Eiroa, the company’s president, confirmed to halfwheel that an Aladino Maduro is in the works. While most details have not been announced, it is said to use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper.

JRE launched the original Aladino line in 2015. It is made at the company’s Las Lomas Factory in Honduras. The brand, along with the rest of the company’s lines, was originally distributed by CLE Cigar Co., but Justo and his father, Julio Eiroa, launched JRE Tobacco Co. in early 2016 and took over distribution last February.
