Does the name Julio R. Eiroa ring a bell? If it doesn't, here's a refresher: Mr. Eiroa has been a tobacco grower and cigar maker since 1962, after migrating from Cuba to Honduras. Julio achieved cigar fame back in the late 1990’s with a brand called Camacho that he brought back from the unknown with his son Christian. After much success, Camacho and company was sold off to Davidoff of Geneva almost ten years ago, but Julio is back and this time with his oldest son, Justo Eiroa.
To put it simply, Aladino is everything we miss about “old school” cigars. The wrapper, binder and filler leaves create a “puro” blend that will take the seasoned cigar smoker back in time. Aladino uses the famous Cuban Corojo seed that is no longer used in Cuba. This prized seed is controlled by one man, Julio Eiroa and this particular liga uses 100% Corojo in all sizes.
