Tony Alvarez is a Cuban Master cigar maker. Have one of his cigars and you will immediately recognize that he is an expert. He grew tobacco and hand rolled perfect cigars in Cuba for Monte Cristo, Romeo y Julieta and Cohiba. He then fled Cuba and while in Miami, Florida rolled for Don Tito, La Gloria Cubana and eventually started his own company. After selling his interest in that cigar company he went to Esteli, Nicaragua and opened his own small factory.
His cigars are all totally made by hand, and many he makes himself. Tony only uses the best wrappers, binders and fillers. As in the traditional Cuban cigar factory, cigars do not leave his factory until he personally inspects them. They are all top-shelf cigars. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.
So far well rolled for draw, burn well and on the mild side of medium. I'll buy them again.
