Bandoleros is a cigar brand named for the bootleggers who would smuggle cigars in the 19th century. During this time, the Spanish crown had a monopoly on tobacco production and the making of cigars and other tobacco products. This control allowed them to charge exorbitant prices for cigars, which gave rise to bootleggers referred to as Bandoleros. These cigar bandits had cigars made in countries not under Spanish rule and would sell them at a much lower cost, which eventually undermined the monarchy’s monopoly.

Bandolero Clandestinos are full-bodied cigars that were created by Nelson Alfonso, the founder of Selected Tobaccos (he was a Cuban graphic designer who is recognized in the cigar industry for doing the artwork and packaging for the Cohiba Behike brand). These cigars are handmade in Costa Rica using the finest tobacco available. The blend features Peruvian filler tobaccos, an undisclosed binder leaf, and an Ecuadorian wrapper. Tasting notes include rich flavors of cedar, cocoa, and spice with hints of vanilla, maple syrup, and coffee. The Bandolero is a knockout blend from one of the best boutique factories in the world.
