J.C. Newman Cigar Co. and the LeRoy Neiman and the Janet Byrne Neiman Foundation announce the LeRoy Neiman 2023 Collector’s Edition cigars. The cigar is a collaboration between J.C. Newman and the foundation of the late cigar-smoking American artist, LeRoy Neiman. All profits will be donated to support arts education in public schools. 

The 6 x 52 Toro is produced at J.C. Newman’s historic El Reloj cigar factory in Tampa, and features a Havana Rosado wrapper, Florida Sun Grown binder, and a blend of aged filler tobaccos from Latin America.  It is packed in 500 cabinets of 20 cigars with a suggested retail price of $20 per cigar. Inside each cabinet is a lithograph of LeRoy Neiman’s 1978 painting, “Irish-American Bar.” The image is also wrapped around each cigar. The bottom of each cabinet is a print of Neiman’s paint-splattered New York City studio floor. 

“Art has been an integral part of the cigar industry for more than 150 years,” Drew Newman, fourth-generation owner of J.C. Newman, said in a press release. “No artist is more famous for creating his work while enjoying fine cigars than LeRoy Neiman. It is a true privilege to honor LeRoy’s legacy by creating this one-of-a-kind cigar.”

LeRoy Neiman 2023 Collector’s Edition cigars are currently aging in the basement of El Reloj with an expected release of November.
