A new version of the Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 will be heading to Sweden for an event next month.

As the name implies, the Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Barberpole is a barberpole version of the Toothpicks 2.0 blend, which uses two intertwined wrappers—Mexican San Andrés maduro and habano—on top of an internal blend of an Indonesian binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Toothpicks 2.0 is a mixed filler blend, meaning that some of the filler blend is not long filler like a typical cigar.

Riste Ristevski confirmed a report by Ministry of Cigars that 1,000 cigars have been made, 100 of which will be sent to the Cigar Smoking World Championship in Sweden on June 1. The other 900 will be sold through the company’s Swedish distributor, Kind Cigars. Ristevski told halfwheel that the distributor will set the price.
