Today, J.C. Newman Cigar Co. is shipping The American Black Bison Cigar Case. This limited-edition cigar case is unique because both the case and the special cigars inside are all-American. Both the case and the cigars were made in the United States using all-American components. J.C. Newman is releasing 350 cases with a suggested retail price of $300.
“The American Black Bison cigar case celebrates the centuries-old tradition of American cigar making,” said Drew Newman. “The craftsmanship of the case and the cigars contained inside is exquisite, and I am very proud that this case is all-American.”
The case was handcrafted by Brizard and Co. in California using leather from one of the most iconic symbols of the United States, the American Bison. The Bison leather used in this cigar case came from Ted Turner’s ranch in Montana. Inside are three cigars from the first release of The American cigar in 2019. They were rolled in 2018 with wrapper from the 2016 crop of Florida Sun Grown tobacco. These cigars have been aging in the basement Cigar Vault of J.C. Newman’s 113-year-old El Reloj cigar factory in Tampa, Florida, for the past five years.
In addition to The American Black Bison Cigar Case, J.C. Newman is shipping the fall allocation of The American and Angel Cuesta cigars to 107 of the finest premium cigar retailers in 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Both The American and Angel Cuesta are hand rolled in El Reloj.
The American cigars are rolled with 100% heirloom American tobaccos. It is the only cigar rolled with Florida Sun Grown wrapper. Its Connecticut Broadleaf binder is grown by an eighth-generation family farmer. The filler is a combination of a Connecticut Havana and Pennsylvania Mennonite tobaccos. From the wood and hinges on the cigar box to the cigar bands and cellophane tubes, every part of The American is proudly made in the USA.
