The name Alonso Menendez is a term for true cigar connoisseurs. As the founder of the Cuban brands Montecristo and H. Upmann, he helps to shape the world of cigars. Felix, the son of Alonso Menendez, built the Menendez-Amerino tobacco plantation in Brazil after he emigrated from Cuba in the 1960s. Since then, the production of the best cigars begins.
The cigars of Alonso can be assigned to the rather cheap cigars, but at the same time, it represents a rarity. Although an import duty of 28% has to be paid on Brazilian cigars, the price of this cigar brand can be kept relatively low. However, that does not mean that the quality or the taste suffers. Because the tobacco goods of Alonso are Puros. This means that each cigar brand is made entirely of Brazilian tobacco. Rounded off with a black Mata Fina wrapper, the cigars offer a robust and balanced smoking pleasure.
Although Brazil is known for its consistently high-quality tobacco, there are few cigar brands from Brazil. Therefore, the unique Brazilian flavor of the cigar is very special for cigar lovers from Germany and across the world. The purely Brazilian tobacco blend convinces with earthy aromas, balanced taste and a medium strength.
For example, the Alonso Menendez No. 10 cigar convinces with its long and slim format. In addition to a delicious earthy-wooden fragrance, as a cigar of medium strength, it delivers aromas of coffee and cocoa, which guarentees a tasty smoke. The Alonso Menendez No. 40, however, appears in a slightly thinner format than the normal Robusto. Bitter chocolate mixed with earth dominates the smoking experience of this cigar. Thanks to its strength and the tobacco, the Brazilian Alonso Menendez Robusto is considered as a classic of the cigar brand. The handmade longfiller provides extraordinary and well-balanced smoking experience.
