Some of our old-school veteran premium-cigar smokers may remember a brand called Royal Jamaica, beloved for being one of the velvety-smoothest smokes around. Today’s Red Dot cigar line is an excellent imitation of those Royal Jamaica cigars—and it’s available at value prices that make it very easy for each and every cigar enthusiast to experience.
Crafted in Nicaragua, Red Dot cigars are handmade with a mellow blend of Jamaican and Nicaraguan leaf that offers a mild-to-medium-bodied strength profile. While Red Dot cigars are composed of short-filler tobaccos, those tobaccos were deemed by the famed Oliva family to be strikingly similar to the Jamaican leaf used in the Royal Jamaica’s recipe. The result is a satisfyingly silky cigar finished in your choice of a rich and rewarding Costa Rican maduro wrapper leaf of deep dark brown, or a sleek, softer-brown Ecuador Habano EMS.
If you’re shopping online for a page-out-of-history handmade cigar that’s as easygoing as it is economical, and affordable as it is enjoyable, check out the many mouthwatering smokes of the mellow Red Dot brand, available in boxes of 20 and convenient 5-packs.
