The Oliva family of cigars may be one of the most popular brands of premium cigars in the US. But they didn’t get their start as a family of cigar makers. Instead, for over 135 years, the family has earned and maintained a reputation as one of the finest tobacco growing families in the world. A little more than 25 years ago, the family decided that their best path forward was to create a line of premium cigars that would bear their name too. They came out of the gate with strong offerings that were excellent quality cigars at value price points. This helped them quickly establish a reputation in an industry dominated by big names like CAO and Rocky Patel. Their brand has evolved over the years to include some of the best selling premium cigars in the world. They continue to make outstanding cigars at great prices.
Cuba Aliados is one of the most famous cigar brands of the boom era. Their cigars were known for having outstanding flavor and aroma. Unfortunately, they were not able to keep pace with demand and their brand faltered. A few years ago, Oliva purchased the brand and vowed to return it to its former glory. They wanted the cigar to be as close to the original as possible, so they turned to the master of Honduran tobacco, Julio Eiroa, and his Aladino factory to help create these special cigars. The blend is 100% Honduran tobacco just like the original cigar. Medium in strength, Cuba Aliados Original Blend features rich flavors of earth, pepper, natural tobacco, and cedar along with hints of vanilla, cream, and syrup sweetness. If you had the opportunity to enjoy this brand in its heyday, you’re in for a treat!
