The JR 50th is a 5 x 54 Rothchilde and comes from Tabacalera de Garcia, rolled with aged tobaccos from four countries. The filler is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, the binder is a Connecticut Broadleaf with a Criollo Mexicano wrapper.
Each cigar comes in a red tube and is packaged in a red and gold, 12-count box sold at $15 a smoke and $180 a box. There will be a limited run of 500 boxes available.
The JR 50th will be available starting February 22, exclusively at www.JRcigars.com.
