Saint Luis Rey Original
Currently, these non-Cuban versions of Saint Luis Rey Original cigars are hand-rolled in Honduras, though they've been around the block a number of times before landing there. After first being manufactured in Cuba, the cigars were made in the Dominican Republic, and now, of course, Honduras. Many fans of the brand claim the Honduran version could be the best. Let's take a look.
The Cigar Aficionado 91 rated Saint Luis Rey Original cigar has a core blend of complex Peruvian long-filler tobaccos held together by a Nicaraguan binder. Sitting on top is a Nicaraguan wrapper abundant with oil and kick. Once this slow burner is working out on your palate, you're in for a full-strength experience of caramel, vanilla bean, dried fruits, and berries.
This Cuban heritage brand has kept fans satisfied for decades. If you haven't already had a taste of this history, there's no time like the present.
