After a bit of a delay, Jordan Alexander III Premium Cigar Company begins shipping its recently reblended Jordan Alexander III Corojo today.

The cigar is made at the Quesada Factory in the Dominican Republic and replaces the company’s current corona blend, an announcement that came last August. The cigar uses a Dominican corojo wrapper, Dominican binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. It is being released in four sizes, all coming in 20-count boxes: a 5 1/2 x 54 robusto ($7.95 MSRP), 6 x 52 toro ($8.50), 6 x 60 double toro ($9.75) and a 6 x 52 belicoso ($9.25). The three parejo vitolas will feature a pigtail cap and closed foot.

It’s the first release for the company under its new look, which has been updated from the original “lions and crest” logo to a design that the company feels exemplifies the family tradition theme of JA3Cigars. The new logo is based on the Alexander family coat of arms.

The company will be holding an official launch event for the cigar at Cigars on State in Clarks Summit, Penn. on Feb. 6.

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.
