Macassar— A truly Different Type of Cohiba Cigar

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

General Cigar Company, one of the largest manufacturers of premium cigars in the world, and home to such famous brands as Macanudo, Partagas, Punch, and Hoyo de Monterrey, just to name a few, proudly introduces Cohiba Macassar, an ultra-premium masterpiece that draws its inspiration from the rare, hard to procure Indonesian ebony wood that bears the same name. General says that all the premium tobaccos featured in the Cohiba Macassar blend are proprietary to the company and have undergone an extensive aging process.

Macassar comes dressed in a Connecticut Havano wrapper that cloaks a Connecticut broadleaf binder and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers that have been aged four years, except for the broadleaf binder, which was aged for six years. To complete this gourmet cigar recipe, the tobaccos spend their final year in fragrant rum barrels

The wrapper of Cohiba Macassar is also grown in a specific area of the fertile Connecticut River Valley, which imparts a unique spicy sweetness into the tobacco leaf. The wrapper leaves from this region then undergo additional sorting and grading to make sure that every leaf displays the perfect shade and even color before being selected for the blend.

Cohiba Macassar is available in three popular big ring sizes sizes: Toro Grande, at 6 inches by 52 ring Gigante, at 6 by 60, and Double Corona at 7.25 x 54. Each vitola ships in a stunning, 10-count box that’s crafted with layers of this fine Macassar Ebony wood.

The finished product is a medium body blend that displays a slow even burn and an effortless draw while providing the cigar aficionado with tantalizing flavors of wood, white pepper, cedar, and coffee, backed by a smoky vanilla sweetness imparted from the deeply fermented rum barrels

To assure that you won’t be deprived of this exceptional line of ultra-premium cigars, this is not a limited-edition release, but rather a regular-production addition to the renowned Cohiba brand portfolio. So, order yours today right here on the JR Cigar website and experience the amazing complexity and flavors of a truly different type of Cohiba cigar.

Gran Habano Cigars – Affordable and Delicious!

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

The Gran Habano brand encompass a four-wrapper variety of premium handmade cigars blended by the father and son team of George and Guillermo Rico and handcrafted in Honduras. Their goal was to marry rich flavors and superb construction with affordable prices, and, if you browse through the tons of high-ratings from industry experts and everyday smokers alike, it’s safe to assume that they accomplished this task with flying colors!  Considered by many to be the “Bentley” of budget friendly cigars, the current Gran Habano portfolio consists of the #3 Habano, the #5 Maduro and Corojo, and the #1 Connecticut.

The Gran Habano #1 Connecticut cigars are expertly rolled with well-aged Nicaraguan Habano binder and filler tobaccos paired with a silky smooth, golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper.  Made with the mellow to medium-bodied enthusiast in mind, the cigar serves up easygoing, well-balanced flavors of cocoa, nuts, toast, cedar, and caramel. Even if you prefer a stick with a lot more kick, this lush Connecticut style cigar has more than enough flavor to become your morning or mid-day smoking companion.

Dark brown in color and decidedly Cuban-style in character, the medium to full bodied Gran Habano # 3 Habano cigars provide scrumptious layers of dark roast coffee, white pepper, roasted nuts, cedar, and a sweet smoky aroma. We think this cigar is about as close as you will come to a genuine Cubano without needing a passport and a plane ticket to buy them!

Featuring a hearty combo of aged long-fillers from Nicaragua and Costa Rica, the Gran Habano #5 Maduro  cigars are finished with a dark and oily Corojo wrapper from Nicaragua. this full-bodied pleasure is oozing with hearty notes of espresso, chocolate, spice, roasted nuts, and earth. A Maduro lover’s dream, these black beauties are just begging to be smoked after a juicy steak fresh off your backyard grill.

The #5 Corojo cigars are undoubtedly the most full-bodied blend in the popular Gran Habano lineup.  The recipe consists of a nutrient rich, clay red Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder, and perfectly aged long-fillers from Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Peppery spice, rich earthy tobacco, leather, and black coffee flavors provide a heady, powerful smoke that is best tackled on a full stomach! Newbies need not apply, but the well-seasoned cigar aficionado will find the #5 Corojo cigar an extremely satisfying reward after a busy day!

Cornelius & Anthony Venganza— A Very Special Premium Cigar

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Cornelius & Anthony Venganza Cigars come from the esteemed Bailey family who have been curating premium tobaccos for more than 150-years! A superb follow-ups to the company’s highly touted Cornelius line, a fine recipe of the finest aged Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, paired with silky and seamless Ecuador wrapper are being rolled at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

For a very small operation, La Zona has made a lot of noise with 601, Murcielago, MoyaRuiz, and a string of other top selling blends including this one.


Right out of the gate, these flawlessly crafted vitolas wallop the palate with a blast of white pepper. The draw is nearly perfect, and you can tell that this stick will be burning slow. A few tokes later, things settle down nicely as full, but creamy textured notes of cinnamon, cedar, black cherry, and sweet spice remain until the final third when a long and satisfying cream finish wraps things up nicely.

The Venganza lineup includes four popular sizes, the (5 x52) Judge, the (6 x50) Persuader, for smaller ring fans, the 5.5 x 46 Silencer, and the big and bold BMG that weighs in at a hefty 6 x 60 length and ring. Twenty of these lovely smokes come beautifully banded and packaged in aromatic, slide top cedar dress boxes.

We think that seasoned cigar enthusiasts looking for a delicious, yet highly distinctive full flavored cigar smoking experience will love all aspects of the flavor and complexity that the top-quality Cornelius & Anthony Venganza Cigars provide.
