Tony Alvarez Salomon cigar is totally handmade, aged and has a smooth medium-bodied taste. Tony's Salomon Habano has a light creamy taste with well balanced and complex earthy, cocoa & woody notes. It has sweet notes of nuts and finishes with a mild chocolate undertone. The wrapper is an exquisite Cuban-seed Habano sun-grown 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 Salomon cigars prove his talents.
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 CAONAO cigars. Tony knows cigars and went to Esteli, Nicaragua where he opened 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. It's the only way that Tony knows how to make them.
Each Salomon cigar is 7 1/8 inches long with a ring gauge of 58. 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 low-priced premium cigars before they are sold out.

These aren't premium cigars by any means, but they are good everyday cigars. The taste is slightly harsh, not enough to put you off but noticeable. The wrappers on some of them peel off as you smoke which can be a tad annoying. I'd buy them again for daily use around the house. I think they are priced fairly considering their size and that they also have a taste of the havana about them.

I bought 75 of them and so far, after having only one, I am pleased. The price was right too, as your associate (forgot his name) directed me to a St. Patrick's Day sale. I'd recommend this cigar to others who smoke them.

I was lucky to catch these on sale. Perfect everyday cigars. I've bought these a couple of times now and have not once had a bad smoke. These are on the top of my list to buy.
