On March 9, Golden Leaf in Hobart, Ind. will host Ristefari 2019, an annual Jas Sum Kral event. As has been the case with past Ristefari events, JSK will bring a special cigar.

This year that cigar is once again a salomon, this year a 7 x 56 version of the company’s Crna Nok blend. Jas Sum Kral declines to disclose the full Crna Nok blend, but Riste Ristevski, the company’s founder, said that it has a tweaked blend and uses a broadleaf wrapper.

Ristefari 2017 featured a Red Knight Salomon and last year’s event had a Zlatno Sonce Salomon.

Production is limited to 99 boxes of 10 cigars—it was supposed to be 100 but one was destroyed in transit—with pricing set at $150. Phone orders will open on March 11.
