Tony Alvarez Gran Crown Corona cigars are totally handmade with aged Cuban-seed Habano tobacco and have a smooth medium-bodied taste. The wrapper is an exquisite sun-grown Cuban seed Habano leaf. The premium binder and long-fillers are also finely cured Cuban seed Habano. This blend of aged Habano tobacco provides an earthy, creamy taste that's well balanced and has sweet notes of licorice, cedar, nuts and chocolate.
Tony has been making fine cigars for years and these prove his talents. He personally supervises each roller in the creation of these cigars, and some of them are even made by the man himself. Habana cigars of this caliber are hard to find, except at Cuban Crafters. Each Gran Crown Corona is 7 1/2 inches long with a ring gauge of 50. 25 premium cigars are hand-packed in a cellophane bundle.
Tony Alvarez is a Cuban Master cigar maker. He grew tobacco and hand rolled perfect cigars in Habana, 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 CAONAO. Tony knows cigars and he 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 premium cigars. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.

I was surprised in the craftsmanship of the roll and was also taken by the initial flavor when first lit. Combined with a good scotch and California's nice weather, I truly enjoyed my first Tony Alvarez Gran Crown Cuban Seed Habano Cigar. What I like the most is the way the cigar progresses in flavors as you smoke through the cigar. Nicely put together and I'm a fan, Mr. Tony Alvarez.
