At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, JRE Tobacco showcased its Aladino brand. Aladino is a brand created by Julio Eiroa, father of CLE Cigar Company owner Christian Eiroa. Last year, CLE Cigar showcased and then soft-launched the Aladino brand. Earlier this year, it was announced that Julio Eiroa and his other son (and Christian’s brother), Justo Eiroa would be forming a separate company called JRE Tobacco. With the new JRE company, the Aladino, Tarascan, and Rancho Luna brands were moved into it. With the Aladino, the brand was brought into IPCPR with a slightly tweaked blend and some new sizes.
With the Aladino, the blend remains 100% Authentic Corojo with tobacco grown from the Eiroa family farms in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras. Justo Eiroa did inform Cigar Coop that a higher priming wrapper is now being used on the blend.
In addition four additional vitolas have been added, bringing the total number of vitolas in the line is now 12. At a glance, here is a look at the JRE Aladino:
Wrapper: Authentic Corojo (Honduras)
