In 1999, General Cigar Company designed a special Hoyo de Monterrey cigar line for an organization of full-price tobacconists... and JR was prohibited from buying it. After a run of three or four years, the brand extension was discontinued due to low order volume by these same tobacconists, and whatever was left of these premium handmade cigars never got boxed. And, lo and behold, who’s the only company in the world that has these authentiv vintage cigars now? JR Cigar! These figurados are no more than a mild-to-medium smoke but, boy, are they ever good!
