JR Cigar has teamed up with Drew Estate to bring its customers a new exclusive cigar: The NightShade.

Handcrafted in Nicaragua at the La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, NightShade uses aged filler tobaccos from both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, followed by a rich Indonesian binder and a stunning Connecticut Habano wrapper.

This blend is described as a rich and flavorful medium-full bodied smoke. With notes of dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and espresso with a dash of black pepper and leather.

The cigar takes its name from the plant family Solanaceae, commonly known as nightshades, which include the tobacco plant.

According to Drew Estate Founder and President Jonathan Drew, the true beauty of this exclusive NightShade blend lies in its diverse, multi-country origins.

“This blend unites majestic tobaccos from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Indonesia,” Drew said, “which we then painstakingly wrap under a Habano seed wrapper-leaf grown in the Connecticut River Valley. This results in dark earthy espresso meeting the blackest of peppers in some kind of aged-goodness dance,” he said.

“No joke,” Drew added, “the NightShade is dope!”

Offered in 20-count boxes, NightShade is available in four sizes: 5.75 X 46 Corona ($6.50 per cigar, $116.95 per box); 5 x 52 Robusto ($7.00 per cigar, $125.95 per box); 6.5 x 54 Toro Extra ($7.70 per cigar, $138.60 per box); and 6 x 54 Torpedo ($8.00 per cigar, $143.95 per box). The Robusto and Toro Extra sizes are also available in 10-packs and 5-packs.
