When I think of J.C. Newman, I think of cigars like Diamond Crown. Some of those are among my favorites, but they're super-premiums, so you're not going to light one up to walk the dog (unless you own a yacht). So you can imagine my surprise when I saw this new cigar from our friends in Tampa - Trader Jack's Kickin' Cigars.
I don't smoke a lot of flavor-infused cigars, but Trader Jack's Kickin' Cigars are changing my mind. If I'm doing yard work or heading to the golf course, I'm looking for something mellow, and these Lonsdales (6.2" x 45) certainly are. They sport a Connecticut wrapper and fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic. Then, to satisfy your sweet tooth, they infuse them with vanilla, cocoa, and sweet baking spice essences. They come in resealable pouches of 20 cigars at just a hair over a buck a stick. Tasty, affordable, and portable - what more could you ask for?
