Viva Republica will be launching a unique limited edition cigar called Jailbreak. Word of the Jailbreak cigar The cigar features an innovative concept – namely a cigar within a cigar.
According to Viva Republica President Jason Holly, “Jailbreak is a new concept in where a Lancero is buried inside of a 6’X 58 cigar trying to escape. I decided to create this unique cigar in dedication to my stepfather who recently retired as a Superintendent of the Dallas State Correctional Institution.”
The project starts with the construction of a lancero cigar. After the lancero is rolled, the cigar is aged before being re-rolled inside a 6 x 58. Once the 6 x 58 is constructed the cigar is aged again.
In terms of the flavor profile, Holly says, “The cigar offers a flavor profile that is quite unique, it’s a blend that would be very difficult to replicate in a traditional cigar format.”
It was back at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show that we reported on a project being done by Viva Republica called Jailbreak. This is the second limited edition cigar done by Viva Republica. Back in November a limited edition cigar for Operation: Cigars for Warriors was released.
The Viva Republica Jailbreak will come in twenty count boxes. Production is currently limited to 300 boxes. The cigars will have an SRP of $12.50 per cigar.
Viva Republica is distributed exclusively in the United States by Miami Cigar and Company. In 2013, Cigar Coop named the company one of our “2013 Five Boutiques to Watch”.
