When discussing Cuban cigars and their modern counterparts, there are the few obvious ones that come to mind. You have your Montecristo and Cohiba, and if you really know your stuff, then you are familiar with the Partagas line and of course Romeo y Julieta. Yet, El Rey del Mundo, both its Cuban original and modern Honduran version, sometimes fall by the waist side. This is a damn shame, considering both, especially the Honduran line, are some of the best full bodied cigars for your money Lets take a brief look at the historic El Rey line.

 The original El Rey from Cuba was once one of the most popular and esteemed brands in the world. It was one of the only mellow cigars that still maintained that signature Cuban flavor. When consumers taste began to shift more towards fuller bodies, the popularity of the original El Rey began to wane. That is where the bold new incarnation began to take form.

 Following the revolution, several cigar manufacturers fled the now communist nation to begin to craft cigars around the world. Honduras became home to the modern version of the El Rey Del Mundo. Currently manufactured by General Cigar, the Honduran El Rey is big, bold and beautiful. It comes in a variety of different sizes which include your choice of a cedar filled Ecuadorian Sumatra version, or a rich and bold dark maduro.

El Rey del Mundo is the smoke of choice for anyone who loves not only heavy, earthy Honduran notes, but also for the baller on a budget. These fan favorites are not often smoked by the occasional aficionado, but more likely they become a mainstay in someone’s humidor. They are great for any time of year and for any occasion. Are you having a fancy dinner party? Break out the El Reys! How about just something to smoke on and off while you do yard work? The El Rey is there. They remain one of the most stable and consistent premium cigars in the world, which is why they are named the king. Get yours today at Serious Cigars.
