BURLINGTON, N.C. – As part of its year-long 50th anniversary celebration, JR Cigar is paying homage to the most iconic cigar brand in the industry with the release of the Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th offered in the Torpedo vitola.
“The Montecristo Cincuenta was originally released in 2019 to celebrate another 50th anniversary – that of our Tabacalera de Garcia factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Altadis U.S.A. “Now we are proud to offer this iconic Montecristo vitola as a special limited edition to celebrate another tremendous milestone, the 50th anniversary of our colleagues at JR Cigar. This blend showcases the amazing tobacco and skilled blenders we have. It is the perfect cigar and size for such a great occasion.”
The Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th is hand-rolled in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera de Garcia. It uses vintage Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos for the filler followed by a flavorful Dominican binder and a rich, flawless Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.
When first released, the Cincuenta was smooth, rich and subtle, with dashes of nuts, leather, coffee and a touch of spice. Now that these cigars have been kept for two years in reserve in preparation for this release, the tobaccos have aged beautifully, creating an even smoother and more flavorful experience.
Offered in a 10-count box, Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th is available in one size: 50 X 6 Torpedo. While the two vitolas originally released under the Cincuenta line were box-pressed, the JR 50th is a rounded-style torpedo. Just 500 boxes of this exclusive, limited release were created.
Priced at $35 per cigar; $350 per box, this cigar will be available this Monday, April 5, exclusively at www.JRcigars.com.
