After debuting at the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show with a host of different lines,  Jeremy Jack Cigars had nothing new that was specifically released at this year’s event. However, owner Brady Hayek was highlighting the JJ14 Lancero, a 7 1/2 x 40 line extension to the company’s JJ14 brand that was released earlier this year.

As with the other three sizes in the JJ14 line, the lancero is covered in an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. The cigar is rolled at the Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Estelí and is packaged in boxes of 20, with each cigar retailing for $9.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
