JR Cigar Announces Terra de Andes

Tierra de Andes Cigars

Following the success of its original JR Pure Origin line Gran Vulcano, JR Cigar is introducing its second blend: JR Pure Origin: Terra de Andes, available beginning November 1. The JR Pure Origin line was born out of JR Cigar’s desire to offer its customers something truly unique by using rare and exotic tobaccos from around the world.

The cigar derives its name from the famed Andes Mountains of South America, home of the tallest active volcano in the world. Not only do the Andes have an incredibly rich history – it’s the birthplace of one of the six earliest civilizations – but the Andes is where the tobacco plant first blossomed. Aided by the nutrient-rich soil, unique microclimate and special eco-system, tobacco grown in this mountain range produces a bold, yet delicate smoke, with amazing and diverse tonalities.

“With JR Pure Origin we have brought our exclusive lines to new heights, and we look forward to continuing that success with this release” says Brad Winstead, CEO of JR Cigar. “In partnering with Rafael Nodal and the legendary A.J. Fernandez, we have created a unique and complex cigar that tells the story of the region with each puff.”

JR Pure Origin: Terra de Andes uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and aged Nicaraguan and Peruvian filler tobaccos. It is packaged in a white box containing ten cigars.  It is available in three classic vitolas:

5 x 50 Robusto ($108 per box, $12 per single)

6 x 50 Toro ($117 per box, $13 per single)

6 x 56 Toro Gordo ($126 per box, $14 per single)
