Onyx cigars come from the same Master Blender as many other of the Altadis lines such as H. Upmann and Romeo & Julieta, namely Jose Seijas. Handmade at the Altadis factory in the Dominican Republic, Onyx Reserves made their debut in 1999. They are a full-bodied, box-pressed Maduro that pack a punch - definitely not one for you novices out there! With a blend of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru, wrapped in a blackened Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro, these are excellent cigars for the price. Cigar Aficionado gave these cigars a very high 94 rating. They are available in nine of the usual shapes and sizes.
