The stick comes in a 7.25 x 54 vitola is $14.95 and comes packed in boxes of 10 priced at $149.50 per. Production is limited to 500 boxes. The cigar will be available December 1st, exclusively at www.JRCigars.com.
“This is a prototype of a Mi Querida liga we’re developing as a possible addition to our brand portfolio,” Saka said in a statement. “Our current code name for the project is “MQ Black” as it is intended to be ringed with black bands. It is only fitting that this cigar first be used to celebrate JR Cigar’s 50th Anniversary as its inspiration was the maduro cigars that Ed McVey, the longtime cigar buyer, and I smoked during our tenure over two decades ago at JR.”
