Tony Alvarez Sandwich Double Corona cigars. Tony Alvarez cigars are known for their fine taste and construction. This Cuban Style Sandwich Doble Corona is no exception. It is handmade with the aged Cuban seed Habano tobacco boquilla from the production of the regular Tony Alvarez cigar line. Boquilla is the long strips of tobacco that are left during the making of long-filler cigars. The boquilla is then enveloped in Cuban-seed Habano long-leaf, which is then wrapped in a Cuban-seed Habano binder and a rich tasting Sumatra wrapper. This blend of tobaccos produces a mild to medium-bodied tobacco taste with smooth licorice & cedar notes, hints of mild spices, and cocoa undertones.
Tony has been making fine cigars for years and these will only be produced for a short period of time. He's busy making his higher priced cigars that are always in high demand, but decided to make these sandwich cigars as a way to reach smokers who are looking for affordable alternatives.

Double Corona is 5 1/2 inches long with a ring gauge of 46. 25 cigars are hand packed in a cellophane bundle. Quantities are limited so hurry and get these bargains before they are sold out.
Tony Alvarez is a Cuban Master cigar maker. Have one of his cigars and you will immediately recognize that he is an expert. He grew tobacco and hand rolled perfect cigars in Cuba for Monte Cristo, Romeo y Julieta and Cohiba. He then fled Cuba and while in Miami, Florida rolled for Don Tito, La Gloria Cubana and eventually started CAONAO cigars. He sold his interest in that cigar company and went to Esteli, Nicaragua to open his own small factory. His cigars are all totally made by hand, and many he makes himself. Tony only uses the best habano wrappers, binders and fillers. As in the traditional cuban cigar factory, cigars do not leave his factory until he personally inspects them. They are all top-shelf cigars. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.
