A new Jose Rey, for a touch of sweetness every day.
Jose Rey might be a new name to the cigar industry as a whole, but it traces its origins to a small cigar lounge in New Orleans, LA. In the early 2000s, brand founder Abe Flores was working with three owners of a shop that produced their own cigars. Abe found them to be uninteresting, so he founded the Pinar del Rio brand as a store exclusive, with the Jose Rey as one of their first offerings. Eventually Abe cut ties with the shop and moved with one of the owners to the Dominican Republic, and the rest is history.
Jose Rey Cigars come with a sweetened cap that will remind you to slow down and enjoy the sweeter things in life, and help remind you to carry a positive energy that will make your days just a little bit brighter. The filler blend is undisclosed, but this mellow-medium bodied gem comes in your choice of Sumatra, Maduro, or Connecticut wrappers, and it’s sure to put a pep in your step when you taste the toasty, zesty wood notes with a pleasant sweetness on the lips and in the finish. We’re not sure exactly who Jose Rey is, but we know damn sure that his name will be well known to cigar connoisseurs before too long.
