Jas Sum Kral (JSK) Cigars is adding a new regular production offering under its Tyrannical Buc line in the form of a barber-pole offering. Currently, the Tyrannical Buc is available in a Connecticut Broadleaf and Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade offering. The Tyrannical Buc Barberpole will combine both the Connecticut Broadleaf and Ecuadorian Shade wrappers. The cigars will have a soft launch at Golden Leaf in Hobart, Indiana where the retailer will have exclusivity for a few weeks before the cigar is made generally available in April.
In addition to the Connecticut Broadleaf and Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers, the Tyrannical Buc Barberpole will feature a Nicaraguan binder and both Pennsylvania (U.S.) and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars will be available in one size – a 6 x 50 Toro – and will be packaged in ten-count bundles. Production comes out of Tabacalera de Aragon in Estelí, Nicaragua.
In a press release, Jas Sum Kral owner Riste Ristevski commented. “Every year I make a cigar for Golden Leaf to be released in March. Last few years it was a Solomon size of one of the blends. This year I decided on a barber pole because the Tyrannical line is 2 blends.”
While the Tyrannical Buc Barberpole is the third blend in the Tyrannical Buc line, last year there was also a Tyrannical Buc Habano released as a limited edition single store exclusive.
Pricing for the bundles is set at $110.00 MSRP. JSK Cigars said the Tyrannical Buc Barberpole will be available for the international market as well.
