JM Tobacco Carnero

jmcarnero

JM Tobacco has a pair of new releases that both fall under the Carnero name. Carnero, the Spanish term for a rough and rugged mountain ram, is a moniker that fits the cigar well. Actually, the name really only matches the first Carnero release, which is a bold, full-bodied cigar that features a Corojo wrapper. The interior consists of a Dominican filler and a Connecticut Broadleaf binder. Despite the cigar’s strength, the Corojo-wrapper Carnero offers plenty of flavor and a pleasant aroma. President of JM Tobacco Anto Mahroukian describes the cigar as a perfect complement to a steak dinner and some nice red wine.

The second Carnero from JM Tobacco is milder than its Corojo counterpart thanks to its Connecticut wrapper. It still packs a bit of a punch, however, and is listed as being medium to full-bodied in strength.

Produced in the Dominican Republic, both Carnero lines from JM Tobacco consist of tobacco that is aged for two years. Once the cigars are rolled, they are aged for an additional six months. JM Tobacco attached a Cuban flair to the lines both in their shapes and packaging. The lines are being produced in four traditional Cuban shapes: the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 44 Lonsdale, 6 x 52 Belicoso, and 7 x 50 Churchill. Priced at $5 to $6 per single, each shape will be available in what is referred to as dress-up heavy cardboard boxes of 20, which also reflects Cuban style.

The Carnero is being marketed as a premium cigar. It’s not the first premium selection from JM Tobacco, however, as the company got its start in the premium market in 1995 with the release of the Espanola line. Speaking of the Espanola, Mahroukian said that JM Tobacco might look to release a “superpremium” boutique cigar to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the original line’s launch.
