Cigar News: JR Cigar Announces Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of JR Cigars, and they have been releasing a string of new cigars to celebrate. The latest is a new vitola of the Montecristo Cincuenta, called the JR 50th in a torpedo.

“The Montecristo Cincuenta was originally released in 2019 to celebrate another 50th anniversary – that of our Tabacalera de Garcia factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Now we are proud to offer this iconic Montecristo vitola as a special limited edition to celebrate another tremendous milestone, the 50th anniversary of our colleagues at JR Cigar. This blend showcases the amazing tobacco and skilled blenders we have. It is the perfect cigar and size for such a great occasion.”

Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Altadis U.S.A.

The Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th is rolled at Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic. The blend uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder, and vintage Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. This version of the Cincuenta is the same blend as the original 2019 release, but was also rolled at the same time, meaning it has been aging for two years after rolling.

Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th comes in 10-count boxes and one size, a 6 x 50 Torpedo. The original two vitolas of Cincuenta were box-pressed, but the JR 50th is a rounded-style torpedo. Only 500 boxes of this exclusive, limited release were made. Each cigar costs $35 per cigar or $350 per box. It goes on sale this Monday, April 5, exclusively at
