It’s April and everyone here is excited to finally be getting outside and enjoying some nicer weather. And if you were in the Mooresville area at the end of March (the 20th and 21st to be exact) you might have heard a huge commotion... that was the Grand Opening of JR’s new Mooresville location! It was a great time and customers, vendors and staff all enjoyed the two days of deals and events. We have a brief article about the new location (page 5) as well as a couple of photos. The concept for the store is based around the customer. When you stop in and visit, the first thing you’ll notice is the cigar lounge. It takes up the majority of the floor space. In the humidor you’ll find hundreds of cigars available for sale in boxes or as singles. And finally we have our vintage room. Here we have vintage, limited run and hard to get cigars. If you live in or are passing through North Carolina, be sure to stop in and enjoy the atmosphere (and a few good cigars).

But a new store is not all! It’s just 2 months to The Biggest Cigar Bash in North Carolina! That’s right, Smokin’ in the Carolinas is back and everything you loved about last year is returning as well as a few new surprises (like we’re adding a hat to the goody bag since we received a lot of requests for one last year). Be sure to check out the ad on the inside back cover for details on how to order your tickets. And don’t wait! The tickets are selling so quickly that our VIP tickets were nearly gone less than a week after we put them on sale.

We also have the second part of our WhiskeyFest article (page 38) in which we share our bourbon/rye/scotch adventure with Jonathon Drew of Drew Estate. We round it off with some more pairings to help you when sitting down with your favorite smoke.

With so much going on, we almost forgot to tell you about the exclusive new Rocky Patel Fire (page 1)! This great new blend is exclusive to JR and to give you even more incentive to buy it, we’re giving you 10 FREE cigars with any box purchased. This full- bodied, spicy smoke is the perfect accompaniment to a night with good friends.
