What is a JR. sized cigar ???

Dominica Grande Natural 5 x 30 combo filler @ 65c

Dominican Pequeno Natural 3 1/2 x 22 combo filler @ 45c

These are such cute little baby cigars and like the big guys you'll have to use a cutter !!!

Well these are such a decent smoke for the price that I am wondering if I should point out that these cigarillos don't come 'box pressed' or even look like they were. Of course, 'box pressing' is usually only a temporary process, the claim is that the pressing causes the mixture of long and short (trimmings) leaf fillers to mingle or whatever. I'm going to guess that it's to hold them together while the glue dries.

Also the boxes they do come in are some sort of stinky pine that you don't want to store these guys in either. So if you buy cigarillos in bulk a $20 travel travel will hold a large number and I think any real natural tobacco will keep from drying out and will taste better properly stored.

So what's a JR. Cigar ? Well, 'little cigar' has already been taken (or likely misappropriated) for those faux cigarettes that are sold cheaply, by slipping into a lower sales tax surcharge catagory. And, well maybe 'cigarillo' doesn't quite keep people from calling them funny looking cigarettes.

That's marketing...
