Crowned Heads Mother Church JR 50th Anniversary
We are leading this Top 5 JR Exclusive Brands with a banger from Crowned Heads. Released in March of 2021, the Crowned Heads Mother Church JR 50th Anniversary smoke has been a cornerstone of the 50th Anniversary cigars we have been releasing all throughout 2021.
The cigar takes its name from the famed Ryman Auditorium®. The Ryman has played host to several of the most legendary musical acts of the last 100 years, and due to its origins, the venue has long been known as Mother Church by Nashville natives.
Handcrafted in Nicaragua at Tabacalera Pichardo, the Mother Church wrapped in a flawless Ecuadorian Corojo 99 leaf, while having tobaccos from Nicaragua to make up the binder and filler. Some flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the Mother Church are hickory, roasted nuts, cocoa, and various spices on the backend.
Offered in a unique box designed to resemble the stained glass windows and church-like features of the Ryman Auditorium, Mother Church by Crowned Heads is available in a 10-count quantity and in one size, a 7 X 48 Churchill. Only 500 boxes were made, so pick up yours while they are still available!
NightShade by Drew Estate
This exclusive cigar has been one of my favorites since its release. In 2020, JR Cigar teamed up with Drew Estate to bring its customers a new exclusive cigar called The NightShde.The cigar takes its name from the plant family Solanaceae, commonly known as nightshades, which include the tobacco plant. We collaborated with master blender Willy Herrera who was at the helm for this JR exclusive project. His expertise in crafting a beautiful cigar shows throughout this entire smoke.
Handcrafted in Nicaragua at the legendary La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, NightShade uses tobaccos from both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic for the filler, all while being bound by rich tobaccos from Indonesia, and is cloaked in a stunning Connecticut Habano wrapper.
This rich medium to full-bodied smoke has delicious flavor notes of dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, and espresso with a dash of black pepper and leather you’ll detect with each and every puff.
Arriving in a box of 20, the NightShade is available in four different sizes. However, the Robusto and Toro Extra-sized cigar are also available in 10-packs and 5-packs. All sizes are available exclusively here at JR Cigars and are in limited quantity. So, hop on over to our website today and treat yourself to the Nightshade by Drew Estate.
Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days
Next up is a cigar from a beloved cigar company across the world. Altadis USA is our parent company and is in charge of some of the top-shelf smokes throughout the industry. When they released the Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days in 2020, we knew this gem would do wonders for us here at JR Cigars.
This cigar was expertly blended by the famed Grupo de Maestros from Altadis U.S.A using the best tobaccos that were aged for 10-years. The inspiration for the Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days hails from Andre Dumas’s famous Count of Monte Cristo novel. While keeping true to the theme, each cigar is aged an additional 100 days in aromatic cedar bins after they are rolled then arrives in a cigar box that replicates the novel itself.
Cloaked in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, the Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days has a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos that hail from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. This medium-bodied smoke has delicious flavor notes of wood, spice, cocoa, and leather. Available in three different sizes, that come in a box of 10, you can now stop by our website and get the luxurious Montecristo Volume 1: 100 Days whenever you want!
Another JR Exclusive brand we’ve all enjoyed smoking a few times a year is the Boneshaker Maul. With the band and name being quite intimidating at first, everything else about this delicious smoke is very warm and inviting. This full-bodied smoke is cloaked in a dark and oily Connecticut Binder wrapper, while Nicaraguan tobaccos make up the binder and filler.
Some flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the Boneshaker Maul are earth, cinnamon, and peppery spice on the backend that is just begging to be paired with an ice-cold brew and a juicy steak.
This mouthwatering cigar is available in one 6 x 54 size, that comes in a box of 20. You can now get yourself a box of the Boneshaker Maul today on JR Cigars.
Last but not least, is a cigar that came out in the latter part of 2019 and took the industry by storm. We have our very own, Cabañas cigars. Cabañas was crafted exclusively for us here at JR Cigar and were expertly rolled in four stunning sizes at the renowned My Father Cigars™ factory in Nicaragua. Cabañas is a new take on one of the oldest Cuban heritage brands, with the ultimate Cuban-style cigar experience.
The man beyond the Cabañas, Don Pepin Garcia, utilizes tobaccos from the Jalapa Valley region as well as tobaccos from the mountains in Esteli to make up the perfect construction of our very own Cabañas. Cloaked in a breathtaking Habano Rosado wrapper, the Cabañas is a Nicaraguan puro that delivers complexity throughout the cigar.
This medium to full-bodied smoke provides an abundance of delicious flavors with each and every puff. Some notes you’ll detect while enjoying a Cabañas are coffee, molasses, roasted peanuts, and a touch of spice on the backend.
Available in four different sizes, that come in a box of 20, you can now purchase the Cabañas today, only at JR Cigars!
