There’s a new size of the J. London Gold Series arriving at retailers, the 7 x 50 Box Press Churchill.

Like the other sizes in the line, it uses an aged Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and binder, while the filler is Dominican tobacco that has been aged for three to four years. It is made at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic. Pricing is set at $100 per pack, or an MSRP of $20 per cigar.

It is also a limited production for the initial fun, with 500 five-count packs released, a total of 2,500 cigars. This is the fifth size to be added this year, as it joins the Fat Robusto, the Belicosos Fino, a short panetela called the Queen’s Guard, an ‘A’ vitola that is a retailer exclusive.

J. London Cigars was launched in 2014 by Jonathan Fiant, and its Gold Series premiered that year in two vitolas, a robusto and a lonsdale. Two more vitolas—a lancero and toro—would be added in 2017. The Box Press Churchill is the latest in a series of small batches of specific vitolas that Fiant is making, with each batch coming wrapped in some sort of artwork.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
