JRE Tobacco added a fifth line to the Aladino family of cigars with the Cameroon earlier this year.  The line was originally scheduled to be released during the 2020 PCA trade show, but due to COVID, the launch was pushed back to the spring of this year.  The line was released in 3 sizes, robusto, lonsdale, and super toro, but a lancero size, called the Elegante, was added during the summer as an exclusive to Blue Smoke of Dallas.  The Elegante, which I’m reviewing here, is now a nationwide release.
