Viva Republica announces limited-edition Jailbreak cigar


Jason Holly, president of Viva Republica, has announced the launch of a new, limited edition cigar named Jailbreak.

The cigar, measuring 6 x 58, has two wrappers (Dominican Corojo and Ecuadorian Habano), an undisclosed double-binder, and a filler that features 10 different tobaccos. What separates this cigar from the others, according to a press release issued by Viva Republica, is that there’s a fully rolled and aged lancero in the center of each cigar (although, at 6 inches in length, that core cigar is really more of a petit lancero).

“Jailbreak is a new concept in where a lancero is buried inside of a 6 x 58 cigar trying to escape,” said Holly in the press release. “I decided to create this unique cigar in dedication to my stepfather who recently retired as a superintendent of the Dallas State Correctional Institution.”

Viva Republica is releasing a total of 300 20-count boxes of Jailbreak, which is set to retail at $12.50 per cigar. Jailbreak will be shipping later this week.

Jailbreak will be made available through Miami Cigar & Co., the American distributor of Viva Republica.
