Tony Alvarez Gran Toro cigars are totally handmade, aged and have a smooth medium-bodied taste. Tony's Gran Toro Habano cigars have a light creamy taste with well balanced and complex earthy notes of licorice, cedar, nuts and mild chocolate. The wrapper is an exquisite Cuban-seed Habano leaf that was sun-grown. The binder and pure long filler are finely cured Cuban-seed Habano tobacco that was grown in Nicaragua. Tony has been making fine cigars since Cuba and these premium cigars prove his talents. The Gran Toro is 5 3/4 inches long with a big ring gauge of 54. 25 cigars are hand packed in a cellophane bundle. Quantities are limited so hurry and get these low-priced premium cigars before they are sold out.
Tony Alvarez personally supervises each cigar roller in the creation of these cigars, and some are even made by the man himself. 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 so he went to Esteli, Nicaragua and 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. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.

One of my friends I order for does not prefer the super duper double corona size, and liked these better. I ordered them and we all sampled the, and found them to be excellent. Tony Alvarez seems to only know how to make good cigars! Great value for the money you can't go wrong.
