Two years ago, Cubanacan Cigars introduced Soneros at IPCPR 2013.
The brainchild of Cubanacan’s master blender, Omar Gonzalez Aleman, Soneros is blended to pay tribute to “the flavors, aromas and blends of the past”. The past, in this case, refers to Aleman’s years in the Cuban tobacco industry, during which he rose to the position of general manager at the famed La Corona Cigar Factory.
Soneros utilizes tobacco that is said to be aged for a minimum of five years, and is offered in two variations—habano claro, and maduro. Both are wrapped over a binder from Ecuador, and fillers from Nicaragua. It was initially offered in four sizes— 5 3/4 petit sublime, 5 1/2 x 60 gran robusto, 5 1/2 x 60 campana (belicoso), and a 6 x 52 toro. The following year the company added a 5 5/8 x 46 corona gorda to the portfolio, available in both wrappers. Click here to read the full review.
