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 his own company. After selling his interest in that cigar company he went to Esteli, Nicaragua and opened his own small factory.
His cigars are all totally made by hand, and many he makes himself. Tony only uses the best 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.

This is my first experience with the barber pole. I have only had one thus far and it was very mild just like I like them. Great for the golf course.

If you are looking for a mild to medium bodied cigar that has smooth draw, nice flavor with hints of spices, little to no touch relights. Then this is a cigar you must try! I ordered this cigar a few months back and I am a major fan and my best friend is also now a fan. Matter of fact when I recently ordered he asked me to order him a bundle. He also admires all the attributes I have stated. He says for the price you cannot go wrong to at least try and then you will also be a convert!

Great cigar! Smooth draw, mild to moderate flavor with small hints of spice but very nicely done. Burned nice and even with no relighting which I hate. Excellent cigar to have while having drinks.
I placed in my humidor for three weeks to make sure they we at perfect humidity and freshness. Really a pleasure to smoke these. Shared with my good friend and he agreed that it was an excellent smoke.
I would and will recommend to friends.
