J. London Cigars’ newest limited edition, the Telephone Booth Series, is slated to ship to retailers this month.
The first cigar in the series is a 5 x 50 robusto that is called the Blue Telephone Booth. It uses a corojo wrapper, an olor binder, and a mix of broadleaf and criollo 98 fillers, though the countries of origin of those leaves are not being disclosed. It will come packaged in red butcher paper-wrapper bundles with a blue sticker of a phone booth. Production is limited to 600 individually numbered bundles of five cigars, a total run of 3,000 cigars that is being produced at an undisclosed factory in the Dominican Republic. Jonathan Fiant of J. London Cigars said that it is a facility owned by a family with four generations of experience growing and processing tobacco, while the cigar was blended by “a master with over 40 years of experience in the industry.”
Pricing is set at $14.60 per cigar.
Fiant also previewed the next two releases in the series. The second blend will have a neon green sticker and will be a 6 x 56 toro gordo that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, while the third blend will have a pink sticker and will be a 4 1/2 x 54 petit robusto with a pigtail cap that uses a habano maduro wrapper. Both of those cigars, along with all the cigars in the Telephone Booth Series, will be priced at $14.60 per cigar. Those two cigars will have production runs of 3,000 and 4,000 cigars, respectively.
The cigars are currently en route to the U.S. and will begin shipping once received and processed by the company’s distribution warehouse.
