January 13, 2012 — J.C. Newman Cigar Company introduces the Double Gordo, a stout 6″ x 60 cigar in both the Quorum Classic and Quorum Shade lines.

“60 ring gauge cigars continue to grow in popularity,” said J.C. Newman President, Eric Newman. “Quorum is the number one selling bundle cigar in the world and if we want to continue its growth, we have to give consumers the sizes they want.”

Quorum cigars are hand rolled in Nicaragua, a country known for some of the world’s heartiest, full-bodied tobacco, at J.C. Newman’s Nicaraguan Factory, Puros de Esteli Nicaragua, S.A. (PENSA). The Newmans’ dedication to quality has been materialized in these smooth, medium-bodied cigars available at a price accessible to even the most budget-conscious cigar lover.

“Quorum cigars are smooth and full of the bold, peppery flavor people have come to expect from Nicaraguan tobacco,” said Newman. “This truly is a great cigar for a better price.”
