JR Pure Origin Gran Vulcano

JR Pure Origin Gran Vulcano

By David J.

JR Pure Origin Gran Vulcano are Nicaraguan puros highlighted by the use of prized Ometepe tobacco. An island formed by two volcanoes rising out of Lake Nicaragua, Ometepe’s nutrient rich volcanic soil gives the tobacco a naturally sweet taste and fabulous aroma. Created by the famed Plasencia family, this pure tobacco blend is available in luxurious eye-catching boxes of 10ct and three popular sizes. Cost per stick ranges $6.50 - $7.50 and MSRP’s range $12.00 - $14.00. This is a must have quality cigar at a small investment that returns high margins. This month we’re giving you $5 off each box, which will instantly boost your profit margins even higher (see page 5)

Romeo y Julieta 1875 Connecticut Nicaragua

Romeo y Julieta 1875 Connecticut Nicaragua

By Kristie M.

Romeo y Julieta 1875 Connecticut Nicaragua comes from the famed Plascencia family farms, covered by a gorgeous, silky Connecticut seed wrapper. The uniqueness is this Connecticut leaf, normally harvested from the Connecticut River Valley in the U.S, is actually grown in Nicaragua, in collaboration with Altadis USA’s own Mater Blender Rafael Nodal. This extension of the bestselling 1875 line turns this blend to a flavor bomb with complex flavors of White Chocolate, Coffee Beans, and hints of berries, wrapped in the creamy smoothness of the Connecticut seed wrapper. Available in four sizes and with competitive per stick pricing: MSRP $8.18 - $9.53. This month you will receive $5.00 off each box purchase. Think of it as not just a Connecticut cigar nor a Nicaraguan cigar, but the first Connecticut-Nicaragua cigar and see what a big difference this will make. See page 27 for details.
