Bandolero Cigars

The Bandolero is a premium cigar brand released by Selected Tobacco, which was founded by Nelson Alfonso. Prior to starting his own cigar company, Alfonso was a graphic designer in Cuba who is recognized for developing the Cuban Behike brand. Bandolero cigars are beautifully hand crafted in Costa Rica. The cigars are highly regarded for their excellent construction, consistency, and flavor. During the 18th and 19th century, the Spanish crown did not allow the production of cigars in any country other than Spain. This gave the monarchy a monopoly, and it allowed them to charge exorbitant prices for the cigars. Bootleggers aka Bandoleros would buy the tobaccos and have them produced in other countries and sell them at much lower prices. The Bandolero cigar is named after these legendary bootleggers.

Bandolero Clandestinos

The Clandestinos is a premium cigar that is part of the Bandolero brand. During the 19th Century, the Spanish crown had a monopoly on tobacco production and the making of cigars and other tobacco products. This control allowed them to charge exorbitant prices for cigars, which gave rise to bootleggers referred to as Bandoleros. These bootleggers had cigars made in countries not under Spanish rule and sell them at a much lower cost, which eventually undermined the monarchy’s monopoly. The Clandestinos cigar is composed of a light-brown Ecuadorian wrapper placed over a binder of undisclosed origin and a Peruvian filler. It is a full-bodied stick that offers up a complexity of flavors. Expertly hand crafted in Costa Rica, the Bandolero Clandestinos is the creation of Nelson Alfonso, a Cuban graphic designer who is recognized in the cigar industry for doing the artwork and packaging for the Cohiba Behike brand. Alfonso is also the founder of Selected Tobacco.

Bandolero Traficantes

Created by Nelson Alfonso as part of his Bandolero brand, the Traficantes is a premium cigar line that features a natural Ecuadorian wrapper blended with a binder of undisclosed origin and a Nicaraguan filler. Once lit, this awesome blend provides a rich complexity of flavors and a potent but balanced smoking experience. The brand tells the story of the Bandoleros (or bootleggers) who undermined the Spanish monarchy’s monopoly on tobacco and tobacco products during the 19th Century. The Bandoleros produced cigars in other countries and then sold them at a much lower cost than the Spanish crown would allow. The Bandolero Traficantes cigars are handmade in Costa Rica. Nelson Alfonso is the founder of Selected Tobacco. A Cuban graphic designer, Alfonso is recognized in the cigar industry for doing the artwork and packaging for the Cohiba Behike brand.
