I first heard of Reinado Cigars at this year’s IPCPR when I ran into Antonio Liam. I kept meaning to get back to his booth and talk to him about the unique fermentation process behind Reinado but with so much going preparing for TBOTLCH I just plum ran out of time. Antonio was nice enough to provide a few samples during the show. Those and the handful I received from JerseyJay were consumed for this review.
Video runs around 9 minutes and I summarize the Reinado as being smooth and strong. While not a perfect balance, the flavors are there but its the strength of the cigar that takes center stage. I really enjoyed the torpedo size as I felt the balance between flavor and strength was more on par with each other. I’ll put the Reinado in the same category as I do the MoW Ruination; not an every day cigar but a cigar for those days you need something to help take the edge off.

This is definitely not for me. I would much rather have tons of flavor and lower body. I just dont get the move to these powerhouse cigars, but i guess a lot of people do.
Gee those bands look familiar.
sounds like a good cigar to age in the humidor.
Jerry, glad you enjoyed it !
Personally, I did enjoy robusto more than torpedo but both should be tried to see the difference.
Mike – don’t be scared buddy ! I really don’t think this one is too much for your palette. Give it a try !
Jerry – twitter link is pointing to jersyjay (you are missing E)
Describing it as a cigar with big power, I immediately thought of the Old Powder Keg from Battlegrounds. Even though i prefer more balance in terms of power and flavor, this stick sounds like something that woud be great to close out a long day.
