According to the United Cigar Group website, “During a century, between 1717 & 1817, the Spanish Crown prohibited cigar production in the Caribbean Islands & the rest of the American colonies, and although its precious leaves continued growing on the other side of the ocean, the “puro” cigar rolling that we all know today, could only be done at the Sevilla Royal Factory, supplying an even more demanding market in the world.”
This prohibition led to skyrocketing tobacco prices, and cigar smokers needed a solution. That solution came in the form of the badass Robin Hood-Esque bandoleros, which the Bandolero Aventureros brand tributes. Bandoleros were bootleggers who smuggled in and sold quality affordable cigars rolled in countries not under Spanish rule. They sold these illegal sticks on side roads and in secret hideaways. If caught, a bandolero faced severe consequences. For their bravery to keep the smoke going, is it not our duty to honor their sacrifice and light one of these tasty sticks up? Indeed. Let’s pop the hood and take a look inside.
At the heart of the Bandolero Aventureros cigars is a half undisclosed, half Peruvian filler. Above this blend is a binder of secret origin. A complex Ecuadorian Habano wrapper holds it all together. The result is an outlaw adventure of spice, cocoa, wood, and pepper. The draw is flawless, and the burn line isn’t far behind. The ash is an excellent shade of gray and holds long enough for you to get lost in relaxing thoughts as you watch it grow.
