Typically, JRE Tobacco Co. follows a unique pattern for its new releases. Many of them debut at the annual PCA Convention & Trade Show, formerly the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show. However, a select number of stores will get a shipment or two of the new cigar a couple of months before.
This year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show has been canceled, which—along with other effects of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic—has thrown a wrench into how manufacturers planned to release new items in 2020.
A few weeks ago, JRE soft-launched its newest release, the Aladino Cameroon, at those select stores and now stores around the country will get their orders. JRE Tobacco Co. has decided to move the national release date forward instead of waiting for the mid-July date that the cigars were otherwise expected to begin shipping.
The new line uses a Cameroon-seed wrapper grown by the Eiroa family in Honduras. Underneath are corojo tobaccos from Honduras.
