Julio Eiroa is back.
At this year’s trade show, the elder Eiroa showed off three new lines from his Las Lomas Factory in Honduras. The flagship of the bunch is Aladino, a cigar that interestingly shares the same name as his son, Christian Eiroa’s, factory.
Aladino is marketed as an “old school cigar” using Honduran cigar. The company says that the strength of the cigars differs between each size depending on the ring gauge and the wrapper colors.
It’s offered in eight sizes: Cazador (6 x 46, $8), Churchill (7 x 48, $13.50), Corona (5 x 44, $5), Elegante (7 x 38, $8), Palma (6 x 43, $6), Petit Corona (4 x 40, $4), Robusto (5 x 50, $10) and Rothschild (4 1/2 x 48, $8).
Each cigar is offered in boxes of 20.
Julio Eiroa began working in Honduras in 1963. He is credited as one of the most important farmers in the history of tobacco. In 1995, his company, Caribe Imported Cigars, purchased the Camacho brand and would own it until selling it to Oettinger Davidoff AG in 2008.
The Aladino brand is being distributed by CLE Cigar Co.
