Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale

The JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale has to be one of the best cigars I've smoked and reviewed during 2020. The first third is a harmonized and complex list of flavors that kept my palate highly engaged. The rest of the cigar wasn't as complex, but still good with enjoyable flavor combinations. Burn and construction were great on the cigar, no doubt elevating the smoking experience.

I enjoyed the first third and then the rest of the JRE Aladino Elegante was fairly average. With a cigar of this length, I was hoping for a little more in terms of the composition of the flavor profile and transitions. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, but I'd probably lean towards a vitola in the line with a shorter length and larger ring gauge.

This is no doubt quality Honduran Corojo. I enjoyed the slick and oiliness of the profile a lot with the minerals, baking spices, non-sweetened cream and nuts. I would smoke the JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Robusto again without a doubt.

Being 100% Corojo, I had worried that the cigar may be fairly drying, but that wasn't the case. This was a really nice introduction to the JRE portfolio and has me eager to try the other lines.
