El Rey Del Mundo

Showing all 3 results

El Rey Del Mundo, which translates to “King of the World,” is a legendary cigar brand with roots dating back to the 19th century in Cuba. The brand, established in 1848 by Antonio Allones, was originally regarded as a modest enterprise. However, by the end of the 19th century, under the visionary guidance of the Spanish businessman Emilio Ohmstedt, it quickly became one of the most popular premium cigar brands in the world.

In the 20th century, the brand saw a transition when the Cuban revolution led to the nationalization of the tobacco industry. Production of Mundo cigars subsequently split into two branches – one continuing in Cuba and the other in Honduras, the latter managed by Villazon & Co. Both versions of El Rey Del Mundo cigars are highly respected among cigar connoisseurs worldwide.

One little known fact about the brand is that it was one of the first to produce limited editions or “special productions,” starting with the Grandes de España in the 1970s. This innovation played a key role in the brand’s enduring popularity and influence on the cigar industry.

As for the cigars themselves, El Rey Del Mundo cigars are renowned for their impeccable construction, offering an easy draw and a smooth, even burn. The flavor profile is usually medium-bodied, with the Cuban version presenting notes of earth, leather, and sweet spices, while the Honduran variant is often characterized by its rich, creamy flavors with hints of cocoa and cedar. Both versions provide a rich, aromatic smoke that is highly satisfying and pleasant, making El Rey Del Mundo a classic choice for both novice smokers and seasoned aficionados.
