Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua JR 50th Goes on Sale Tomorrow


Tomorrow, JR Cigar will begin selling its latest 50th anniversary cigar.

The Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua JR 50th is a 6 x 52 round torpedo, the first time the line is being offered in a non-box-pressed vitola. Like the rest of the line, it is a Nicaraguan puro, produced by Abdel Fernández in Nicaragua.


JR Cigar is selling the cigar for $10.50 per cigar and says the release is limited to less than 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars.

“The Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua has been one of my absolute favorite blends I have developed with AJ Fernandez,” says Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA, in a press release.  “The Quattro line has always been box-pressed, but I asked AJ to make a small number of round cigars that I could enjoy and share with close friends. The resulting cigar turned out to provide an exceptional new experience for an already exceptional blend. I could not think of a more special cigar to use for JR’s 50th Anniversary Quattro Nicaragua than the 2019 Cigar of the Year in this very rare format.”

Aging Room is distributed by Altadis U.S.A., a sister company to JR Cigar.

JR Cigar was founded by Lew Rothman in 1971 as a small cigar store in Manhattan. Rothman would expand the business with more stores in New Jersey, North Carolina, Michigan, Texas and Washington D.C. In addition, he created Santa Clara as a wholesale distribution company to sell products to other stores. In 1997, 800-JR Cigar, Inc. went public on the NASDAQ and in 2003, Altadis S.A.—now Imperial Brands, plc—purchased a controlling stake. Last year, Imperial sold JR and its other premium cigar companies to an unnamed Chinese buyer.

AGANORSA Leaf, Altadis U.S.A. and Davidoff of Geneva USA have created other limited edition 50th anniversary cigars.
