Top 5 Cigars for Memorial Day

When we celebrate most holidays, it involves tons of food, drinks, and celebrating with our loved ones. However, when it comes to Memorial Day, this holiday is a little bit different than the rest.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday that commemorates those who’ve died serving in the United States armed forces. Now, most of the time, enjoying certain things on this holiday doesn’t feel the same if you’ve lost a loved one in the line of duty. But we believe here at JR Cigars that we can honor the ones we’ve lost in our own, respectful way.

With our Top 5 lists and samplers, we do, it’s always themed usually. For this specific sampler, we have five cigars that come from companies whose manufacturers or owners were one of the luckier armed force members who made it back home. This weeks Top 5 is dedicated to the ones we celebrate on the last Monday in May every year.

From Southern Draw to Perdomo, here are the Top 5 Cigars to enjoy on Memorial Day 2022. Don’t forget the limited time sampler in the link below.
