“Our new line extension for the JM’s Nicaraguan premium cigar is for heavy hitters, who can handle a brawny smoke,” states President Anto Mahroukian. “The cigar features a Corojo wrapper, and is full-bodied. It is equally full-flavored, thanks to its powerful all-Nicaraguan filler.” The company has been a leader in premium and value-priced cigars since 1996 and offers several top-quality cigars at affordable prices.
The JM’s Nicaraguan line appeared at last year’s tobacco trade show. It is a handmade Cuban sandwich, with an all-Nicaraguan filler and maduro-fermented Connecticut broadleaf binder. This year, the Corojo wrapper takes its place alongside the original Sumatra and Maduro frontmarks. The Corojo offers a robust break to the original Nicaraguan’s creamy mild-to-medium smoke.
The Corojo and Nicaraguan follow JM Tobacco’s focus on value, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of less than $5.00. Like all JM Tobacco offerings, the punch-cut Corojo comes in eight traditional shapes, from the 5.5” x 42 Corona to the 6.75″ x 62 Gordo Grande. The original Nicaraguan and Corojo are presented 50 cigars to a box, except for the large-girth Gorditos, Gordos and Gordo Grandes … their boxes hold 24. Mahroukian explains, “All the box art … graphics and text … is now unified throughout our portfolio, varying only in their color combinations for easy identification. The suggested retail pricing for all JM’s lines are also identical … we’ve made it easy for smokers to identify our individual products.” JM’s Corojo will be available at tobacco retailers this August.
