Introduced in 1842 by the Antonio Allones factory, the El Rey del Mundo brand was launched under the name "The King of the World". An extremely high quality cigar, "The King of the World" cigar enjoyed great success during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Soon, the company and the brand were renamed "El Rey del Mundo". One of the classic Cuban cigars, El Rey cigars boast a mixture of fine tobaccos and a rich aroma. In the mid 20th century, the El Rey brand was one of the most expensive Havana cigars on the market. The brand's medium-bodied flavor (true even in the larger sizes) and a distictively exquisite aroma make this a great cigar for smokers of all levels of experience, and for any time day or night.
This brand name is one of the most popular and coveted Habanos among all cigar smokers of the world. All sizes are made with tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region using the 'totalmente a mano, tripa larga', totally hand made, long filler method.
