The Cuba Aliados Miami is manufactured by Reyes Family Cigars, who are the makers of Puros Indios Cigars. These cigars are a different blend than the regular Cuba Aliados line, and are made in Miami instead of Honduras. I had a hard time finding background information on this cigar, as apparently it is a new release.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★☆
This was an attractive looking cigar with a good presentation. I found the red and white band very eye catching. It had a nice triple cap and a smooth, blemish free EMS shade wrapper.
Construction : Rating: ★★★½☆
My only gripe regarding construction was that this cigar was underfilled causing an overly easy draw. However, it wasn't a big deal and didn't cause the cigar to burn crooked or go out. Otherwise, this was a well made cigar.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
The Cuba Aliados Miami started off smooth with a strong leather taste and hints of cedar. It had a similar taste profile to other Rolando Reyes blended cigars I've had. It picked up some pepperyness after the 1st quarter. The cedar taste intensified in the second half, especially on the finish. This cigar tasted well aged and offered some nice complexity.

Value : No Rating
I could not find pricing information on this cigar. It seems that this line is not yet available at online retailers and suggested MSRP was not listed on the Reyes Family Cigars website. Cigars from this company have historically been fairly priced, so I don't imagine that this will be an overpriced cigar. I think this would be a good buy in the $5-$6 price range.

Overall Rating : Rating: ★★★★☆
This was a good change of pace cigar for me, as I find that Cuba Aliados/Puros Indios cigars have a unique flavor profile. This cigar stays in that profile, and perhaps offers a more refined experience. If you are a fan of this company's cigars you will definitely like it, if not you probably won't. Regardless, I recommend it for a try, especially if the price is right.

    I had one of these recently when in the Poconos at the festival of cigars. Treated me very nicely and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I agree on all points of this review.

  4. migoluch says: has these sticks for the lowest prices I’ve seen. And I agree with the reviews – good complexity and appearance. I think these are comparable to Siglo Limited Edition (by Frank Llaneza), though these are priced better and they have stronger favlor.

    I like this stick alot. I found the tastes to be the same, but in different order…Refined cedar aged woodiness was the central component, there was a nice spice almost immediately present that stayed and never got out of hand, and then as it progressed I noticed the earthier leather component which was stronger later on. A very smooth upper medium body smoke that belied a bit of its strength due to its, seemingly, well-aged leaf. Higly recommended and it definitely stands with many of higher priced cigars IMHO.

    John Werner is right…the strength sneaks up stealthily…casually hidden by the smoothness. Still a toss-up for me though…the Cienfuegos Engine #5 could be better than the Miami. They’re both legit. Once a month I order a 5pack of each from primostogies. It’s desert for men.
