Antonio y Cleopatra, or AYC, cigars are a well-known brand of cigars to most of the world’s cigar smokers. AYC manufactures low-cost cigars that appeal to anyone who enjoys a quality cigar at a great price. AYC’s Grenadier cigars are a full Panatela size cigar (6 ¾” by 34) which is offered in a natural leaf wrapper. The Grenadier provides a mild to medium taste which is ideal for novice or casual smokers, as well as anyone who enjoys a light tasting cigar. The mild flavor and aroma makes the Grenadier a good choice for an after dinner cigar when the crowd includes both smokers and non-smokers who may be bothered by cigars with a stronger aroma.
AYC offers the Grenadier in a number of different forms and packages to fit a variety of smoking interests and needs. In addition to the traditional Grenadier, there are also light and dark versions of the cigar. These versions use different types of wrappers and tobacco than the standard Grenadier to provide a smoker with the choice of a milder or more robust flavor. AYC also offers Grenadier Whiffs, which are a cigarillo sized (3 5/8” by 24) cigar for those situations where a smoker does not have the time to smoke, the room to carry or simply does not want a full sized cigar. AYC offers Grenadiers for sale as single cigars, in packs of six or in boxes of 50. AYC also produces Wise Guy cigars which are flavored versions of the standard Grenadier cigar.
Cigar smokers can rest assured that AYC cigars are made to the quality products, as Antonio y Cleopatra cigars have been produced since 1879. Just as in 1879, AYC continues to provide cigar smokers with a quality cigar at an affordable price. AYC cigars are American made cigars, being produced under strict quality control standards in Puerto Rico. The cigars are produced by machines operated by experienced craftsman from tobacco grown from Cuban seeds. Unlike many machine made cigars, AYC cigars have a reputation for quality construction, consistency and an even draw. The AYC cigar brand is owned by Altadis, a multi-national tobacco company which is itself owned by Imperial Tobacco. Altadis produces a wide range of well-known products including Fortuna cigarettes and Montecristo and Dutch Master cigars.
