J·R CIGAR CATALOG
Add me to your Catalog Mailing List!
One of the difficult things about putting together an introduction to a catalog is knowing that, because of the delay between writing it and printing it, some of the stuff we report will be old news to you. Trying to predict what may or may not happen while simultaneously addressing this stuff really is quite a balancing act.
So, that said, you may already know that at the end of May, we sent some of our staff down to Nicaragua to do a tour of several cigar factories. They visited NACSA, Perdomo, A.J. Fernandez, My Father, Oliva, General Cigar, and Plasencia (that’s a lot of cigars in the span of a week). Maybe you’re jealous because we didn’t invite you… but we hope you’ll forgive us, as this trip was all about finding the best cigars and making sure we could get them for you (and we’ll definitely have some mouthwatering smokes for you in the coming months). But if you want to keep up on the latest happenings here at J·R, be sure to follow us on Facebook (or Twitter or any of the other social-media sites). Better yet, check out the blogs on our website; our own Steve Nathan shared all of the highlights from the recent Nicaragua trip, and roving reporter Frank Seltzer always provides lots of news from all over the cigar world as well as industry events (like this year’s IPCPR in Vegas).
And speaking of IPCPR, we’ll be there this month to look for even more great cigars that we can then offer to you (at the best possible prices, of course). Our buyers will be posting regular updates so be sure to check back every day while the convention is going on from July 19 through July 23.
But this is all going on later; what have we got for you now? How about the hot-off-the-presses Black Abyss (page 13)! This wicked-good full-bodied masterpiece comes from José “Jochy” Blanco, the very same master who brought to life all those high-rated Aging Room cigars. And if, by chance, your car is in need of a serious upgrade, the great folks over at General Cigar are giving you a chance to win a brand-new Camaro with any box purchase of Macanudo (page 3). We’ve also added the Heisenberg by Quesada (page 11) and Room 101’s The Big Payback (page 33). Believe us, these are some great smokes made by real-deal tobacco experts. That’s all we’ve got for this month. So dive on in and start shopping.
