Jas Sum Kral’s original exclusive cigar for Sweden is returning to the Swedish market.

The Jas Sum Kral Söta Kakor is a 5 1/2 x 48 parejo that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper a criollo 98 binder and fillers from three regions in Nicaragua: Condega, Jalapa and Somoto. It was originally released in 2020 and was followed-up by a maduro cigar called Söta Kakor Chokladkakor that was released late last year.

There will be 200 boxes of 12 cigars released as part of the 2022 shipment.

“When it comes to detail, I am my worst enemy. Working on the band, I knew I wanted to incorporate the history of Sweden. Complete with traditional art, colors, and regal looks,” said Rise Ristevski, founder of Jas Sum Kral, in a press release. “This was the last band Nuzli Hakiim designed for me before he went on to new things in life. Going back and forth with (Karl Martin Brix Nelson of Kind Cigars) picking his brain to get that authentic Swedish look and feel we finally agreed on prob (sic) the best band design I have seen in a long time.”

Jas Sum Kral is distributed in Sweden by Kind Cigars.

The cigar gets its name from the Swedish phrase for sweet cookies, with this version adding the Swedish word for chocolate cakes. The band also contains traditional elements from the Dalarna region of Sweden.

Riatevski added that the Chokladkakor, the maduro version, will return as well, though he did not give a return date.
