Produced in Nicaragua at Tabacalera Pichardo, the same factory responsible for Crowned Heads Mil Dias and Juarez lines, the Mother Church has Nicaraguan filler, Connecticut broadleaf binder with an Ecuadorian Corojo 99 wrapper. It comes in a single size, 7 x 48 Churchill ($12.90).
The cigar takes its name from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, at one time the home of the Grand Old Opry. Due to its resemblance to a church, the venue is sometimes referred to by locals as Mother Church.
Offered in a box designed to resemble the stained-glass windows and church-like features of the Ryman Auditorium, less than 1,000 boxes of Mother Church were produced.
The cigar will be released during a launch event with Crowned Heads at the Casa de Montecristo Nashville retail store on August 3 and will be available in select Casa stores the same day. It will then become available on JR Cigar a few days later.
