During the years of the cigar boom in the nineties, Puros Indios was one of the runaway hits. Made by Rolando Reyes in Honduras, they had a reputation for a lot of flavor for a much more reasonable price than most. When we had a chance to get our hands on a good quantity of Puros Indios Viejo bundles (with more than 6 years of age on them), we jumped all over it.
These tasty treats are made of a collection of long-fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Brazil. These are enrobed with a rich Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. There are notes of espresso and earth, with a bit of oak and a pleasant bit of sweetness on the finish. And when you can get a stick this enjoyable for well under two bucks a crack, you'll feel like a genius for buying them.
