As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, JR Cigar is releasing the Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th in a 6 x 50 torpedo vitola.
The Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th is hand-rolled in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera de Garcia and uses Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos for the filler with a Dominican binder and an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper.
While the two vitolas originally released under the Cincuenta line were box-pressed, the JR 50th is a rounded-style torpedo and comes in 10-count boxes. Production is limited to 500 boxes. It is priced at $35 per cigar, $350 per box, and is available exclusively at www.JRcigars.com.
“The Montecristo Cincuenta was originally released in 2019 to celebrate another 50th anniversary – that of our Tabacalera de Garcia factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic,” Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Altadis U.S.A., said in a statement. “Now we are proud to offer this iconic Montecristo vitola as a special limited edition to celebrate another milestone, the 50th anniversary of our colleagues at JR Cigar.”
