It started in 1963 when a cigar maker in the Dominican Republic named Don Ramon Reynoso created a new native tobacco stock. The cigars crafted from this new stock became a favorite among family and friends.
Ten years later, in 1973, Puros-Reynoso was formally established in the city of Santiago de los Caballeros in the Dominican Republic. It quickly became one of the flagship cigar producers of the Caribbean island.
Initially, Puros-Reynoso started handcrafting medium-body cigars just to be enjoyed exclusively by high-ranking military officers of the Dominican Republic. For this reason, some of the best cigars of this renowned family brand have been awarded military ranks as a name; like “Almirante” (Admiral), which is still the most famous cigar of the brand.
