Dona Flor and Alonso Menendez are both Brazilian puros. I happen to really like both of them. Their wrappers are rustic - and that's a kind term - but the taste is wonderful and certainly worth a try, especially if you like Brazilian tobacco. If you don't like, say the CAO Brazilia, then I'm not sure you would care for either of these cigars. I'm not sure where you can get them in Canada, but there are several places in the US where you can get them for around $6 - $7.
