Tasting evening for the El Rey Del Mundo brand
House of Grauer offers a tasting evening for the « El Rey Del Mundo » brand.
The brand El Rey del Mundo was created in 1848 by Emilio Ohmstedt a german businessman, at the same time as the Sancho Panza brand.
El Rey Del Mundo (King of the world in spanish) was at one time the most expensive and prestigious cigar brand in the world.
Spanish businessman Antonio Allones, Ramon Allones' brother, took over the brand in 1870 when Emilio Ohmstedt passed away.
A brilliant and megalomaniac man, Antonio Allones, became a member of the refusal front, an organization that brought together cuban owners who resisted the american tobacco companies trying to develop their commercial influence on the island.
In 1905, the brand was sold to the Diaz brothers, which they eventually sold to an american company and like all others, the company was nationalized in 1960.
The brand lost some of its prestige in the 1980s, but it sprang back to life thanks to the quality of its vitolas and the consistency of its production.
These puros have distinctly floral and spicy aromas.
El Rey Del Mundo remains one of the great names in Cuban cigars.
