November 19, 2012 (Los Angeles, CA) — JM Tobacco, Inc., has announced a price increase on their complete lineup of JM’s Dominican premium cigars, effective immediately. Pricing on all other JM products remains unaffected.
Company president Anto Mahroukian, states, “This is the first increase by JM Tobacco since January, 2011. At less than 5%, it is modest, especially in light of today’s accelerating inflationary pressures.”
JM’s Dominicans are the core product line for the company, and were among the first value-priced , 100% select tobacco hand-made cigars on the market, being launched in 1999. Following the original Sumatran-wrapped JM’s Dominican, wrapper selections grew to include Connecticut Shade, (Connecticut Broadleaf) Maduro, Corojo, Honey (sweetened and flavored), and It’s a Boy/Girl cigars. The brand is available in eight shapes, in all four wrappers. The blends for all the cigars consist of Dominican-grown, aged Cuban-seed tobaccos. All other details of the JM’s Dominican line remain the same, including box count and the box art’s familiar iconic color schemes.
