IPCPR 2016: JRE Tobacco Co.

In the back corner of the CLE booth, JRE Tobacco set up shop, slightly inconspicuous, but perhaps a bigger deal than it might appear.

JRE Tobacco is the namesake of Julio R Eiroa, patriarch of the Eiroa family and father to Christian Eiroa—owner of above mentioned CLE Cigar Co. JRE Tobacco is the return to the blending game by Julio Eiroa, and his son, Justo. The JRE Tobacco lines had previously been underneath the CLE umbrella, but were broken out in January when Julio and Justo launched the JRE brand. Aladino, Rancho Luna and the Tatascan brands were launched earlier this year, but there were some new blends under the Rancho Luna and Tatascan brands that they were debuting at the show.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
