Aladino Connecticut comes from the brilliant minds of JRE Tobacco Co., an old-school operation centering on the Eiroa family (owners of JRE) and their world-renowned tobaccos, grown in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras.
JRE first made waves in premium cigar circles when introducing the original Aladino cigar during the summer of 2015. This retrofied blend incorporated Corojo-seed tobaccos from the family's own Honduran farms exclusively throughout the blend, eliciting a nostalgic profile not unlike Cuba's best Corojo offerings throughout the 1940s to 1960s.
Introducing several Aladino spinoffs in the years following, JRE now showcases their unique take on a classic Connecticut-style smoking experience. JRE's Aladino Connecticut begins with a pale, silky smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf; this signature ingredient has been draped over all-Honduran binder/fillers from Honduras. Differing from former Aladino blends, the Connecticut's interior recipe has been appropriately toned down in strength, offering the discerning smoker a soft and nuanced experience, not unlike what cigar smokers would find during the Connecticut craze of the former century. Mild in character and delicate in its approach, the Aladino Connecticut graces the palate with flavors of buttered crackers, sage, sourdough, nougat, and a light, fruity sweetness on the finish. Allow JRE to transport you to a simpler time, delivering a truly old-school experience that smokers likely won't find elsewhere.
