Cuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve Churchill Cigars Online For SaleCuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve cigars are part of a little-known blend that was put together shortly before Ronaldo Reyes Sr. passed away. Reyes Sr., during his lifetime, was known as one of the best stogie makers in the world. He immigrated to the U.S. in the early 1970s and worked as an independent roller who produced cigars out of his home. In the early 1970s, his blends were picked up by a large distributor. Though this boosted his sales, he lost control of his brand, which he wouldn’t get back until 2004. For decades, he sought the best areas to grow tobacco and set up factories. Eventually, he set up his factory in Honduras, where it is still in operation today.

This stick comes with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, and binders and fillers from Honduras
. The Cuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve cigars have a deep, dark chocolate brown appearance. The stick is constructed well, with little veining and it is impossible to see any seams. It has an oily sheen and is a little bumpy to the touch, giving the stogie a rustic feel. It is available in four vitolas, including Robusto (5 x 50), Torpedo (6 x 50), Gran Toro (6 1/2 x 56) and Churchill (7 x 48). The band is gold, white and red, and features the company mark in gold on a red background. Under the mark, the name of the stick is stamped on a white background.

The pre-light draw is said to consist of sweet grassy and hay flavors. The first third of the Cuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve cigars produces some spice and leather notes. These notes merge shortly into the first third, giving it a slightly savory taste. In the background, nutty, cream and wood notes balance off the leather and spice quite well. The stick produces sweet smoke that adds to the flavor profile, creating a complex and deep set of tastes.

During the second third, the stogie maintains most of the flavors present in the first third. The spice and leather are two distinct notes in this part of the stick, but are both still dominant. Some reviewers noticed cocoa and tobacco flavors emerging in the second third. The tobacco starts off rather faint, but quickly grows in strength. There is a pleasant spice during the retro hale in the second third.

In the final third of the Cuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve cigars, the leather and spice both take a backseat to the tobacco flavor
. The stogie is very complex throughout this part, and holds onto most of its flavors. Some aficionados tasted some acidity, which they likened to tropical fruit or citrus. Before the finish, the stogie delivers a final spicy kick, but does not end with harshness.

The Cuba Aliados Cabinet Reserve cigars are packed with complex flavors
. They are full-bodied and medium to full in strength. Many aficionados stated that they become even more complex when allowed to age in a good humidor. Their excellent construction means the stick performs well in terms of burn and draw. They are said to be ideal for a smoker with a developed palate, but they are only available in limited quantities, so a buyer will have to act fast.
