The Tabacalera Palma factory is home to legendary cigarmaker Jose "Jochy" Blanco, the man responsible for such famous brands as Aging Room, SWAG , some of Rafael Nodal's Boutique Blends, and more. Now, with his Tabacalera Palma Ready To Smoke Bundles, this fourth-generation tobacco grower, and second-generation cigar maker, has released a line of value-priced cigars under his factory’s own marque. Don’t let the affordable price fool you, because Jochy uses the same skilled rollers from the above-mentioned brands to create a four vitola line of handmade premium cigars that are certain to exceed your expectations. The cigars are called Ready To Smoke because they use Dominican binder and long fillers, all grown on Blanco’s farm in Tamboril that are aged to perfection before being released to the cigar smoking public. The lineup includes the Connecticut 550, and the Connecticut 575 , two separate Connecticut wrapped cigars rolled in both a 5.75 × 35 Panatela, and a 5.75 × 42 Lonsdale size. The third offering, Arapiraca 550, is named after its spicy wrapper grown in the fertile Arapiraca region of Brazil. All medium bodied in strength, the Connecticut style blends deliver rich tasting notes of cinnamon, wood, spice, coffee, and sweet tobacco, while the Brazilian leaf has the same core flavors with the addition of black pepper and hints of chocolate. Order your favorite Ready To Smoke blend from JR Cigar today, and find out why Jose "Jochy" Blanco is considered one of the best cigarmakers on the planet!
