JR Cigar has announced another offering in its lineup of 50th Anniversary Celebration cigars - Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua JR 50th. The company worked with Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability at Tabacalera USA, and AJ Fernandez, to create a new exclusive size in the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua line.
"Really enjoyed this cigar. Fairly potent with a lot of sweetness. By the finale there were some rich coffee notes to go along with the world tour of sweets. I don't typically select belicosos as I find there is a tendency for the wrapper to unravel at inopportune moments, but this well crafted cigar never even hinted at such concerns. " -John I. (John I.)
"I enjoyed the flavors, the aroma was pleasant, it put off a ton of smoke. The size is good for a relaxing morning cup of coffee, and the flavors themselves pair well with coffee. I would have given it a higher rating, but due to the hole in the wrapper, it caused the draw to be weird, hardly getting any smoke, while smoke poured off the end like a tire fire." -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

"Overall a great smoke. It is rare that I smoke anything down to the point where fingers get singed anymore, but this one was too good to let go. Definitely worthy of making a box purchase. " -Dave W. (mdwest)
This is a very good entry cigar into the MBombay portfolio. There is a lot of flavor but not a lot of spice making it a good morning cigar. There was enough transition with the addition of some pepper to keep it interesting. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys milder cigars or an intro into the MBombay brand.
"If the cigar smoked as well as the last third did I would have loved this cigar, but the first two-thirds were kind of flat for me. I would have expected a longer smoke time cause of the size but I feel like this is a mix-filled cigar so it burned a little quicker than I would have liked. I would recommend this cigar to a newer cigar smoker cause it shows some small transitions and won't overwhelm them. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"While the cigar’s appearance didn’t impress me at all initially, this was a clear cut case of never judging a book by its cover. The cigar provided a wide array of flavors and transitions and the end result was a highly enjoyable cigar from start to finish. I would definitely smoke it again." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
"I'd love to smoke this again. The flavors were crisp and clean with a nice progression throughout. The smoke output was great after a few re-cuts; but I'm not sure I would have discovered that if not for the massive tar build up. " -Alan (Eulogy)

"As a fan of heavier, more full bodied cigars, this was a nice change of pace for me on this cold winter day. Loved the citrus and oak notes I got from this, especially on the retrohale. Would I buy a box, probably not but its definitely worth a fiver. Enjoyable overall. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
The MBombay Classic was our the blend MBombay Tobak introduced in May of 2014. Figurados are a more difficult shape to roll at factories and reserved for the more experienced rollers. Now that training efforts are paying off at the factory, Mbombay has announced the launch of the MBombay Classic Torpedo. The cigars are aged for more than 14 months (which will be adhered to for future batches as well).
