IPCPR 2018: Jas Sum Kral

Null

At times the Jas Sum Kral booth was so busy I didn’t dare to go into the booth and then there were times like when I went into the booth when it was empty. This is the nature of the show: ebbs and flows.

Riste Buc’s booth had some custom Stinky ashtray structures, shaped like his logo, and some product on display. There was supposed to be more, but 25 boxes of his cigars were stolen during the set-up process and as such, there were no lanceros or lonsdales on display. One thing that I really like about JSK was it was previewing its 2019 launches. Retailers were informed that if they placed orders at the show they would be guaranteed allocation for next year.

Earlier this year, Jas Sum Kral announced that it would move its production to the Tabacalera de Aragon S.A. factory. As such, all of the company’s blends have been going through the transition and now the Red Knight is ready to return to stores.
