After a bit of a delay, Jordan Alexander III Premium Cigar Company begins shipping its recently reblended Jordan Alexander III Corojo today.
The cigar is made at the Quesada Factory in the Dominican Republic and replaces the company’s current corona blend, an announcement that came last August. The cigar uses a Dominican corojo wrapper, Dominican binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. It is being released in four sizes, all coming in 20-count boxes: a 5 1/2 x 54 robusto ($7.95 MSRP), 6 x 52 toro ($8.50), 6 x 60 double toro ($9.75) and a 6 x 52 belicoso ($9.25). The three parejo vitolas will feature a pigtail cap and closed foot.
It’s the first release for the company under its new look, which has been updated from the original “lions and crest” logo to a design that the company feels exemplifies the family tradition theme of JA3Cigars. The new logo is based on the Alexander family coat of arms.
The company will be holding an official launch event for the cigar at Cigars on State in Clarks Summit, Penn. on Feb. 6.
