Aliados, the legendary model produced by Don Rolando Reyes in Honduras, will proceed so as to add to its legacy dressed with a brand new look.

Don Rolando, a legend on the planet of premium cigars and member of the Cigar Journal Hall of Fame operated hand-rolling factories in Havana, the Dominican Republic, Miami and Honduras. Like many exiles from Cuba, Rolando’s cigar-making expertise could be traced again to effectively earlier than Cuba’s Revolution, working as a cigar curler for H.Upmann, Partagás and Romeo y Julietta amongst others. The Aliados model was produced in Havana from 1955 till his manufacturing unit was confiscated by Castro’s authorities within the early Sixties. At the time, Don Rolando was producing practically 6 million hand-rolled Aliados cigars per yr.

Uprooted and leaving the island in 1970, Rolando went in the hunt for the identical fertile soil and rising circumstances he skilled in Cuba. The model adopted him by way of numerous strikes, earlier than selecting Honduras to be his new residence in 1990.

The travels of Reyes and his model are mirrored within the two distinct strains. The first is a full-time providing made by Julio Eiroa (JRE Tobacco) in Honduras.

After a few years, some airplane crashes and different loopy tales, he, collectively along with his son Justo, nonetheless grows tobacco and makes cigars. No place that has extra historical past than this one, it was for us one of the best place to make our Aliados line.

The second is a particular launch, produced by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo at his manufacturing unit within the Dominican Republic.

A brand new chapter on this model’s storied previous, this yr’s providing is draped in a flawless Sumatra wrapper from Ecuador that has been aged for practically 5 years.

Fred Vandermarliere, the proprietor of the Vandermarliere Family of Cigars (VCF, additionally homeowners of Oliva Cigars) mentioned, “As cigar lovers, we’re extremely indebted to all Cubans who had been so courageous in leaving their residence nation to observe their desires and passions in maintaining the heritage of cigar-making a life, exterior of Cuba. This challenge is to honor all sacrifices they’ve made. It additionally symbolizes the united entrance and alliances we have to make as cigar corporations to face collectively in gentle of recent rules. To be capable of carry this iconic model again to life and embrace each Julio and Ernesto, particularly with their sturdy ties to Rolando, may be very particular. We made positive to take each step doable to pay homage to its storied previous.”
