A cigar magazine can write a great review on this premium handmade Toro size cigar, but you will not experience its true qualities until you smoke it. Reading the magazine is fun, but smoking the cigar is pure enjoyment and relaxation. Tony Alvarez cigars are aged and have a mild creamy taste that includes sweet nuts, nutmeg, almond and cedar undertones. The wrapper is an exquisite connecticut shade leaf. The binder and pure long filler are finely cured Cuban-seed habano tobacco.
Tony has been making fine cigars since Cuba and these premium cigars prove his talents. Read about his history and accomplishments below. Tony Alvarez personally supervises each cigar roller in the creation of these cigars, and some are even made by the man himself. Each Toro cigar is 6 1/2 inches long with a ring gauge of 52. 25 cigars are hand packed in a cellophane bundle.
At these prices it is like buying wholesale. Quantities are limited so hurry and get these ultra premium cigars before they are sold out. You may not see him on the cover of a cigar magazine, but Tony Alvarez is a well-regarded Cuban Master cigar maker. 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 with his partners. Tony knows cigars so he sold his interest in that 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. He only uses premium wrappers, binders and fillers. As in the traditional cuban cigar factory, not a single cigar leaves his factory until he personally inspects them. They are all top premiums. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.

Generally a good smoke, HOWEVER about 25 - 30% of them the wrapper comes undone before you've got it smoked back an inch or so
For the price I deal with it
