It’s Time to Celebrate With The NEW JR 45th Anniversary Cigar!
In 1971, Lew Rothman, a young man who had spent his entire youth working in his father’s various convenience/ cigar shops in Brooklyn, finally decided to spread his wings by opening his very own small cigar store in Manhattan. Although, one the tiniest shops in the city, it had a sign that read “World’s Largest Cigar Store”, and anyone who knew of Lew’s marketing genius at the time, was pretty darn sure that this slogan would someday come to fruition – and they were right! In a very short period, The JR Empire grew from that tiny store in New York City to include larger stores throughout the country; along with our huge, fully humidified 12,000 square foot shipping warehouse, Call Center, and state-of-the –art Online Operations Facilities.
Rothman, still held in high esteem as one of the most famous industry legends, has since moved on, but his dream continues as the company he created continues to grow steadily in leaps and bounds, and here we are in 2016, marking a very special milestone for the whole JR family -our 45th illustrious year in the stogie business!
Altadis U.S. A, a company that has been crafting great cigars since 1918, and is responsible for many of the world’s most renowned premium brands such as Montecristo, Don Diego, H. Upmann, and Romeo y Julieta, decided to help us celebrate in very HUGE way.
Introducing the JR 45th Anniversary Cigar, handmade in true Altadis fashion at the their famed Tabacalera de Garcia Factory in the Dominican Republic, this special smoke was carefully designed using the very best tobacco leaves from growers worldwide to attain its unique character.
In reverence of this significant occasion, Altadis chose the lovely Belicoso shape adorned with a spotless deep brown colored African Cameroon wrapper and aged long filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic nestled inside a bold and tasty Nicaraguan binder. To enhance their striking visual appeal, these cigars are elegantly appointed in ceremonial 10- count dress boxes adorned with eye-catching yellow and black bands emblazoned with the JR 45th Anniversary moniker.
This well planned recipe results in a cigar that burns incredibly slow, allowing you to savor its fragrant sweet and spicy notes of earth, cedar, leather, nuts, and cocoa.
