JM Tobacco Inc has announced its latest offering in the JM Dominican Classic line. The new JM Dominican Classic Maduro will also be joined by the JM Dominican Classic Connecticut. The Dominican Classic line is intended to position JM Tobacco in the area of boutique cigars. Information on the new JM Dominican Classic Maduro was communicated to Cigar Coop via a press release.
In regards to the direction of boutique cigars JM Tobacco president Anto Mahroukian says, “JM Tobacco came out of IPCPR 2013 with sufficient momentum, based on orders and interest, to go full-speed ahead with new products. JM Classic Maduro is the first in this new direction for JM … boutique cigars. And, watch what’s coming right over the horizon.”
The JM Classic Maduro is a double maduro – using Conncecticut Broadleaf Maduro for both its wrapper and binder. The filler consists of Cuban Seed tobacco and the cigar is being launched in four sizes.
Company President Anto Mahroukian says the company was lucky to be able to obtain this select Connecticut maduro leaf, as the harvest for that crop has now sold out. In regards to the blend Mahroukian says, “We were surprised, during our blend testing and development, to find the two tobaccos married so seamlessly. This is usually not the case with two maduros in one cigar … they often compete with each other. Though full-bodied, JM Classic Maduro displays amazing sweetness, but without overpowering the palate. We call it ‘sweet boldness.’”
