The Smoking Syndicate Roundtable reconvenes tonight as we smoke Oliva’s Cuba Aliados by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo in the Torpedo size.

A year ago, Oliva stunned the cigar world indicating it was acquiring three Honduran brands from the Reyes family: Cuba Aliados, Puros Indios, and Roly. Just before the Trade Show, Oliva relaunched the Cuba Aliados brand and would stun the cigar world a second time by announcing it would be turning to two third-party factories to handle production of Cuba Aliados: Julio R. Eiroa’s Fabrica de Puros Aladino S.A. in Honduras and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic. Our attention for this show will be on Ernesto’s blend.

Cuba Aliados by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo is a limited production cigar with 10,000 boxes produced for 2022. It features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers

Tune in and find out what the Roundtable thinks of this release.

This will be live-streamed off The Smoking Syndicate Facebook page. A condensed version will be packaged after the show as well on YouTube and on our podcast network. Broadcast time is 9:30pm Eastern time, 8:30pm Central time.
